Nearly 60 people participated in Sunday’s Halibut Hustle, a 5-K race that started at Land’s End. Sponsored by the Kachemak Bay Running Club, the race was part of the weekend’s first Homer Halibut Festival.
First-place finisher was Pedro Ochoa, 20, who completed the race with a time of 17:08.72. The first woman to cross the finish line was Michelle Mitchell, with a time of 21:47.95.
A day earlier Ochoa crossed the finish line first in the 12-K Rescue Run. The event was a benefit for the volunteer member associations of the Homer Volunteer Fire Department and the Kachemak Emergency Service Area.
