Ostrander falls ill, scratches from Pan Am games

Pro runner Allie Ostrander, a 2015 graduate of Kenai Central, was forced to scratch from a women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase race Saturday at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.

In what was scheduled to be her second appearance as a professional athlete for Brooks Running, Ostrander fell ill Friday night and was unable to compete Saturday, according to a tweet from her agent, Ray Flynn. Canadian runner Genevieve Lalonde won the race in 9 minutes, 41.45 seconds. Ostrander’s personal best for the steeplechase is 9:31.44.
