St. John Hog Jog 2019

Youth take off at the start of the Jog with the Hog race in St. John April 27.

Sixty-three hardy souls braved the cold and strong winds April 27 for the annual Hog Jog and Jog with the Hog kids race in St. John.

The Hog Jog has been running for 41 years. It is organized and run by the St. John/Endicott/LaCrosse track and field team as an annual fundraiser.

The Hog Jog is a five mile run that touts some hills which many use as a warm-up for Bloomsday. The Jog with the Hog has a one-mile and a two-mile option for kids or those unable to make it five miles.

The Hog Joggers started from the city park at 8:30 a.m. with the Jog with the Hog races starting at 8:35. Youth from the track team ran along with the younger crowd. The St. John Volunteer Fire Department started things off.

Participants came from near–―St. John, Endicott, Colfax, Pullman, Moscow, Spokane–and–far―Issaquah; Gig Harbor; Boise, Idaho; Sitka, Alaska, and Sherman Oaks, Calif.

Among the participants of the fun run/walk were three generations of the Logen family with grandmother Pat from Stanwood, mother Vicki and children Jonathan, Matthew, David and Thomas of St. John. Also running was Gletta, an Icelandic Sheepdog.

Drawings were held after the runs. Prizes were donated by St. John businesses.
