Thanks for run-ride support

We had a beautiful morning on Aug. 30 for the Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic’s “Resiliency Run and Ride” on the Homer Spit. We thank all of the participants, younger and older, on foot and wheels, who showed up at low tide to run, walk or ride on the 1K and 5K beach loops from Mariner Park. 

The top finishers were: 

• 5K male: Pedro Ochoa, Erik Helland and Owen Glassman;

• 5K female: Michelle Mitchell, Emily Helland and Alayne Tetor;

 • 5K bikers: Donna Aderhold and Andy Passic; and

• 1K: Sadie, Stella and Sascha Petersen. 

All results are posted at
