Youngren, Boonstra win at Freezer Food Series

Megan Youngren won the first Freezer Food Series race of the winter season Sunday, beating a field of 28 runners on a cold, overcast day.

Youngren blazed the five-kilometer course at the Tsalteshi Trails in Soldotna with a winning time of 20 minutes, 1 second, beating out runner-up finisher and men’s winner Todd Boonstra by 23 seconds. Tony Eskelin was third overall in 21:46, while Jayna Boonstra was the women’s runner-up in 23:36.

The race is the first of a three-month series of community races at Tsalteshi. November will feature running races, December will be bike month, January will be ski month and the final race of the schedule in early February will feature a triathlon-style event.
