Annual Homer Spit Run

The deadline to register online for the annual “10K to the Bay” Spit Run has passed, but registration can still be done before the event begins on Saturday. 

The run will take place at 10 a.m. It begins at the Homer High School and ends at Land’s End Resort.

Registration on the day of the event is from 8-9:30 a.m. Entry fee is $10 for 17 years and under, $15 for over 17 and $25 for a family registration. Proceeds benefit local youth running programs.

All runners and their friends and family are invited to a post-run party on the deck at Land’s End. Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place finishers in both the men’s and women’s divisions.

A free shuttle will be available to return runners to the high school.

The run is co-sponsored by the city of Homer Parks and Recreation, Kachemak Bay Running Club, South Peninsula Hospital and Homer News. Volunteers are needed to help work the water stations and cheer on the runners.

To volunteer, contact Community Recreation at 235-6090. For race details, call Bill Steyer at 3
