FRIDAY, December 16th, 6:00PM--
It is very worst of the Porcine runs. No smiling piggies here, no tired porkers hawking fad hikes that are simply daylight jaunts, this is the ultimate HOG. This is the Hog Back. And not just the Hog Back, but the 12 hours of Hog Back. The one, the original Hard Hog Run.
And to make it just a bit more hard, to sort out the real runners from the want-to-be’s....This is
The Hog Back 12 Hour NIGHT RUN.
ALL RUN, ALL NIGHT!.
This is the Dusk to Dawn nightmare of climbing up and coming down, and climbing up and falling down. A time when hard is supposed to last more than four hours..and you don't actually have to consult your physician if it does. This is the run people dream of....in their nightmares....any yet, if you are signed up for the 100, or are considering such, why mix in all the sightseeing? Lets just cut to the muddy quick! Come on.....if you can not show up for this, then you are just silly dreaming about running the 100, just an Ultra want-a-be.
As Rob Lahoe said of the Hog's Back....."This is the one that taught me to slow down and pace myself....about the eighth time up the Hog's Back I had to learn something!"....
