Wiebe, Dixon capture Homer Mariner Triathlon

Jane Wiebe and Adam Dixon won the Homer Mariner Triathlon on Saturday in Homer.

Wiebe finished in 2 hours, 6 minutes and 37 seconds to take the ironwomen category, while Adam Dixon came in at 1:43:44 to take the ironman category.

The event consists of a 1,000-yard swim in the Homer High School pool, a 15-mile bike up East Hill Road, across Skyline Drive and down to the Homer Spit, and a 5-mile run from the Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon back to the high school.

Wiebe won the race on the bike. She was in third place coming out of the pool, about 2 1-2 minutes behind leader Kristen Buckwalter. But Wiebe finished the bike in 1:06:31, more than five minutes ahead of everybody else, including 6 1-2 minutes ahead of Buckwalter. Buckwalter topped Wiebe in the run by a little over a minute, but it was not enough as she finished at 2:09:27. Brandy McGee was third at 2:19:29.

Dixon used the run and the bike to take his title. He was in fifth place getting out of the pool, almost two minutes behind Dan Miotke. But Dixon’s bike time was a little more than 7 1-2 minutes better than everybody else. He also put the top run time on the board by just under two minutes. Miotke was second at 1:51:11, while Michael McGuire was third at 1:52:38.

In the relay competition, HHS Girls Tri, or the team of Madison Story, Alayne Tetor and Saundra Hudson, won at 1:58:01, while Spoonemore, or Cari and Stephen Spoonmore, were second at 2:10:35 and You just got Chicked, or Adeline Berry and Ginger Johnson, were third at 2:11:57.
