Sunday morning was the 4th annual Hogsback Wilderness Trail Run at Genesee County Parks Elba Equestrian Center. The event featured the 5-mile “Whole Hog” and 2-mile “Piglet” races. Both races had two river crossings, plenty of shoe-sucking mud, and a climb up the Toboggan Hill that would take the breath away from even the best-conditioned athlete. Well over 200 people hit the trails (some of them literally) at this year’s races. The overall winners were:
Lizzy Kippe of Goodrich in the 5-mile Women’s race with a time of 39:37. Jeff Schember of Caro was the Men’s 5-mile winner at 31.52. Winners of the 2-mile Piglet race were: Colin Hooker of Ortonville in the men’s race at 12:46, and Shania Paisley of Beaverton in 16:45.

I finished in just under 47 minutes while playing photographer and enjoying the scenery. This is a challenging and fun race that lets people of all ages run and splash in the water and mud. Complete results are available at:
