The Salmon Run Series and Salmon Cycle Series start this week.

The Salmon Run Series, which lasts for five weeks, begins Wednesday and each race is held behind Skyview High School at Tsalteshi Trails. Each race is five kilometers and the races begin at 6 p.m.

The running races help fund the Kenai Watershed Forum’s summer camps.

Online registration is at www.tsalteshi.org. The cost online is $10 per race for Tsalteshi Trails Association members, and $15 for nonmembers. Race-day registration is $15. All five races are available online for $45 for TTA members and $70 for nonmembers.

New for this year is a youth division. Before each 5K race, there will be a 1K race for children 6 and under. Youth registration is $5, online or on the day of the race.

Runners bags with goodies from businesses around town are given out at each race, in addition to door prizes.

The Salmon Cycle Series, a nine-week series of races, starts Thursday at 6 p.m. Most races will start behind Skyview High School, but Thursday’s race will start at the Wolverine Trailhead on Kalifornsky Beach Road across from the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex.

Races are $5 each, or free for TTA members. There is no online registration. Just pay before the race.
