2015 Boondocks Breakaway
Sixty-five runners came out to Kincaid Park to join us for the 2015 Boondocks Breakaway. This year's race was once again run on the scenic Mize loop trail. The weather was perfect with temperatures in the 60s, light winds and partly cloudy skies. The winner in the men's division was Sebastian Szweda Mittlestadt with a time of 19:43. Danae Polsin was the winner of the Women's race and second place overall finisher with a time of 20:54. Congratulations to all of this year's finishers. Great job everyone.
Thanks goes out to the race volunteers who made the race possible.

Anchorage Running Club hosted the Master's 10k & 5k Race tonight at 6pm. The race started and finished on the Campbell Creek trail near the Chuck Albrecht softball complex. The Master's race is restricted to runners who are 40 years old and older. 45 racers finished the race on a sunny, warm evening in Anchorage. The Master's are the last free races of the 2015 racing season.
