The Ninilchik Chamber of Commerce ran its first Clam Scramble Mud and Natural Obstacle course run Saturday.

The chamber wants to create an annual solstice event in a central location on the Kenai Peninsula for the whole family. Proceeds from the race go to Ninilchik Emergency Services.

The race, about three miles, went through two rivers, along the sandy and rocky beach line, over natural obstacles, through historical Ninilchik Village, across a bridge, up 120 stairs, and ended at Ninilchik View State Campground.

Mike Crawford was the men’s winner in 23 minutes, 2 seconds; while Riana Boonstra, Alex Bergholtz and Addison Gibson tied for the women’s win at 25:08.

The chamber also did the event to bring awareness to the plight of the razor clam. The past five years have seen a substantial decline in harvestable razor clams, sufficient enough for the state to close the beaches from Kenai to Homer to preserve the resource.
