Theisen, Youngren win at Salmon Run Series

Jordan Theisen and Megan Youngren won the fifth and final Salmon Run Series run of the summer Wednesday at Tsalteshi Trails.

Theisen blitzed the field in 17 minutes, 8 seconds, while Youngren crossed at 21:32. The race measured just over five kilometers.

While the Salmon Run Series is done for the season, Wednesday night racing is not. The Fountain of Youth 5K will be Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Skyview trail head. The cost of the Kenai Peninsula Relay For Life event will be $15 for Tsalteshi Trails Association members and $20 for nonmembers.

The pursuit-style race gives head starts based on age and gender, so anybody could win. To get the head start, racers must register on tsalteshi.org. Racers can also choose to start in the last wave if they want to run with a family member or don’t want to be pursued.

Proceeds from the event go to the American Cancer Society.
