Course

The Hog’s Hunt course uses some of the same trails as Rocky Raccoon but there is enough differences to make this run unique. The 25 km clock-wise loop that also contains a couple out-and-back portions, has runners scamper over pine needle covered, rooty single track and dirt jeep roads. Assuming you lift your feet when you run, it really is a nice place to enjoy the trails.

The 50 km athletes enjoyed the loop twice.

Results

50 km

60 athletes wanted two loops!

David Paulson held onto a nine minute lead to win the male race in 4:15:17. Second place was a dual between Troy Sikes and Dustin Thies as 12 seconds separated the two after 50 km of racing. Sikes was able to maintain the lead at the finish line to claim second place. For those that know the course, I envision that last gradual downhill to the finish to be an all out sprint between the two.

Top 3 male:

  1. David Paulson – 4:15:17
  2. Troy Sikes – 4:24:48
  3. Dustin Thies – 4:25:00

The female race saw Christine Tokarz highlight her regional running strength to win by five minutes with a time of 4:32:52. Janice Hauge finished a strong second and seventh overall.

Top 3 female:
