Salmon Run Series announces race details

The Salmon Run Series announced details for the 2020 event Wednesday.

The series will take place this season in Soldotna, instead of at Tsalteshi Trails.

July 8 and Aug. 5, the race starts at Lucy’s Market and River City Books and ends at Kenai River Brewing, with parking available at Walgreens. July 15 starts and ends at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex, while July 22 and 29 start and end at Kenai Peninsula College.

Bib pickup starts at 5 p.m. each week. All registration is online, available until 3 p.m. on race day, and reuse of bibs each week is encouraged. The 5-kilometer race will start each week after the 6 p.m. 1K race for the kids.

A hand sanitizing station will be available to participants. No water will be available, so participants should bring their own water bottle. Any person with COVID-19 symptoms should not participate or be at the event.

Vulnerable people, defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as people 65 years old and up, plus those with various underlying health conditions, should consult with their health care provider to see if they should participate.

All volunteers will be masked and those handling bibs will be gloved. Participants should social distance and will be required to wear a mask at the beginning of the race. The race will be in pods of 25 runners spaced 30 seconds apart, with the fastest runners going first.

Registration is available at kenaiwatershed.org.
