Anchorage Running Club
The Anchorage Running Club held the 30th running of the Mugwumps 10K race at Point Woronzof Park on Wednesday, June 3. The 10K out and back course starts and finishes at mile 4 on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. The weather at the start of the race was partly cloudy skies, temperature of 58° F, and winds out of the south at 20 mph gusting to 30 mph. Perfect running conditions! Thirty-four runners participated in the Mugwumps 2015 10K race.
Runners who have run a 10K race in under 45 minutes are not eligible to participate in the Mugwumps. This means that runners who finished this year’s Mugwumps in under 45 minutes are banished from future participation in the run. Two finishers in this year’s race. James Sowerwine and Bruce Davison beat the 45 minute finish time and hence are banished from ever running the Mugwumps again. Congratulations James and Bruce.
Thanks goes out to all of the runners who participated in Mugwumps 2015 and to the race volunteers who made it possible. Results for Mugwumps 2015 Have Been Posted.
