About This Activity

A roughly 5 mile trail run (and the 2 mile Piglet) through the Hogsback area.  Includes some well-groomed sections, some very rough sections, 2 river crossings and 1 toboggan hill (the up direction).  For examples go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtAwfwOHKLA or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erfvPNTBALs                                                                                                                                                                    or even https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tJ_AAyfv9A (my favorite part is 3:04 to 3:27 watching the kid stuck in the mud).

The cost is $20 (that's the total price you pay online or mailed in- we cover the online registration fee for you).  However, to get a shirt with that YOU MUST register by October 25th.  Race day is $20- no shirt.

The Piglet Includes the river crossings and toboggan hill.

Awards:  Overall male/female and masters division.  Also top 3 in common age groups.  The Piglet awards will be simply Top 5 males/females aged 14 and under.  OF NOTE:  These are handcrafted awards by reknown artist Terry Castor.  Place settings to Hogsback overalls and bowls/mugs to other winners.

Refreshments:  Typically it's great.  Hot soups, muffins, drinks.

Weather:  We are NOT responsible.  Sometimes (like in the video) parts are very muddy, sometimes dry.  Sometimes 13 degrees and snowing sideways, sometimes 78 and sunny.
