The running scene on the Kenai Peninsula served up a pair of races Saturday — the Nikiski Days Family Fun Walk/Run and the 2nd Annual Ninilchik Chamber of Commerce Clam Scramble.

The Nikiski run had three- and five-mile distances. The women’s winner at three miles was Jaycie Calvert at 25 minutes, 18 seconds, while Cy Dull was the top man at 22:24. At five miles, Katie Joule won with 52:02, while Tyler Peek won with 36:04.

The race in Ninilchik is just over five kilometers long and is run at low tide in order to cross the Ninilchik River and Deep Creek. It has interesting barriers throughout, such as mud and climbing up a cliff.

The run, which expanded from just over 70 last year to 115 runners this year, benefits Ninilchik Emergency Services and the Ninilchik Chamber of Commerce.

Alexandria Bergholtz won the women’s run with a time of 23:35, while Riana Boonstra was the runner-up with an identical time. For the men, Mike Crawford was the runaway winner at 21:53, while Michael Bergholtz was next at 24:15.
