The Kachemak Bay Marathon, starting at Lookout Mountain and ending at Baycrest Ski Trails in Homer, had just over 90 finishers Saturday.

The wins in the 42-kilometer races went to Lauren Hess of Anchorage in 2 hours, 35 minutes and 48 seconds, and Dylan Watts of Anchorage in 2:09:39.

The 25-kilometer race saw Meredith Noble of Anchorage and Robert Schoff of Anchorage crossing the line first. Noble finished at 1:46:40, while Schoff completed the race at 1:24:12.

There also was a 25-kilometer tour, designed to be less competitive and encourage more people to get out and ski. Twenty-seven skiers took advantage of that option.
