It may have been wetter than they would have like, but the runners in the 2009 Pokey Pig helped Marion County Country Ham Days get off to a running start.
Scores of runners and their supporters endured the wet conditions to complete the 3.1-mile course.
The overall winners were Matthew Mattingly and Sara Obata. Both are student-athletes at Marion County High School.
Mattingly was the fastest finisher overall, and Obata was the fastest female finisher. Mattingly runs cross country, and Obata is a member of the Lady Knights girls soccer team.
