Victor Skorapa, 22, of Freeport led a pack of 15 runners to win the Wildlands Snowshoe Run on Sunday, Feb. 19, for the second year in a row. Sun and temperatures near 50 F meant t-shirts and well-packed snow on the scenic 4.4-mile course. Skorapa, a student at Maine Maritime Academy in Castine, ran over the flank of Great Pond Mountain in 43:19, followed not-so-closely by the 2nd and 3rd overall winners, Michael Wade, 48, of Ellsworth at 48:54 and Jim Hunt, 50, of Dedham in 51:25.

Robin Clarke, 47, of Ellsworth was the winning female (and fourth place overall) at 57:20, followed by Donna Kausen, 63, of Addison at 57:21, and Melissa Ossanna, 47, of Bar Harbor at 59:04.
