Scott Patterson and Julianne Dickerson won the 663-runner Lost Lake Run on Saturday in Seward. The run takes place on a 16-mile U.S. Forest Service trail with 2,400 feet of elevation gain and loss.
Dickerson finished in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 8 seconds, to edge Jessica Vetsch by 17 seconds. Patterson, who won Crow Pass Crossing earlier this summer, ran 1:37:33 to top the 1:38:41 of Matt Shyrock.
Seward’s Mackenzie Barnwell led the peninsula in the women’s race by finishing 16th in 2:23:36. In the men’s race, former Soldotna resident Derek Gibson ran 1:44:34 to finish sixth, while Lars Arneson, a 2009 graduate of Cook Inlet Academy, was eighth in 1:47:18. Seward’s Erik Johnson was right behind at 1:47:26 for ninth place.
Cooper Landing’s Karl Romig was 34th in 2:10:14 to take nine minutes off the 60 to 64 age group record.
The race, which began in 1992, has raised more than $2 million for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
