Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the fourth annual Hogback Hustle 5K race. We had an amazing turnout of 153 people, who ran or walked to support Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and Boy Scout Troop 221. Thanks also to the many wonderful businesses who donated money, raffle prizes, goodie bag items and race equipment. I would especially like to thank Paper Wise, our Silver sponsor; and our Bronze sponsors A-Team Realtors, Inc., Alpine Bank and Castle Valley Children’s Clinic. We really appreciate your generosity and all you do for the community. Thanks to Bryan and Lynsey at the town of New Castle Recreation Department for helping with race organization. I would also like to thank the many volunteers who helped on race day. Things went very smoothly this year, thanks to you. And thank you to the Boy Scouts for another delicious post-race breakfast. Race results can be found online at, or contact me at 984-9705 if you would like them mailed to you. We hope to see everyone at the Cheatin’ Woodchuck Chase in Rifle Mountain Park on Aug. 4. Contact the Rifle Recreation Department at 625-2151 for more information. It is the next race in the Colorado River Valley Charity Race Series. For more information about the series, call 625-6439.
