Thank you to everyone that participated in the Maunawili Out and Back “Run with the Pigs”! It was a spectacular day, with great weather, and very strong competitors completing the course.
Thanks to the 420+ people hours of trail clearing, everyone was able to run this beautiful trail with minimal hazards or impediments. If you previously tried to get from one end of the trail to the other, you understand the extent of the work accomplished and should realize the need for each of us to give back to the community and the trails upon which we recreate. Our heartfelt thanks goes to the volunteers who gave their time and sweat over three weeks to get this trail into a safe and runnable condition. Please show these folks some love!
Congratulations to the top three men:
- Brian Wyland
- Trevor Johannsen
- Cole Raven
Congratulations to the top three women:
- Annie Pentaleri
- Andrea Smith
- Jane Johannsen
Congratulations to the top two Relay Teams:

Driving Miss Davis
