The annual 5-kilometer and 10-mile run along the Unity Trail between Kenai and Soldotna is organized by Kenai River Rotary Club and Tsalteshi Trails Association, and is one of the premiere activities of the summer. This year did not disappoint, with perfect, sunny-but-not-hot weather and a barbecue and prizes waiting at the finish line at Soldotna High School.

Entry fees contribute to Rotary’s literacy programs at home and abroad, local cleanup efforts and polio eradication worldwide, as well support maintenance of the Tsalteshi Trails system that provides a venue for healthy, fun and varied outdoor activity for all ages and ability levels, all year-round. This event could not happen without the dedication of volunteers and the generosity of event sponsors. Kenai River Rotary and Tsalteshi Trails would like to thank: Headline Sponsor, Central Peninsula Hospital. Platinum Sponsors: Kenai Spine / Sports Med Alaska. Gold Sponsors: Arby’s and Sweeney’s Clothing. Silver Sponsors: Integrity Surveys; Elite Rehab; Lambe, Tuter and Wagner; Nancy Field State Farm Insurance; Freedom Physical Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation, LLC; Alaska Maxi Storage; Kenai Rotary Club; and Frames and Things Gallery.
