Jake Moe of Anchorage is the first one ot cross the finish line of the 2013 10K Run for the Bay Spit Run today, with a time of 32:40.

Under sunny skies, more than 300 runners, walkers and strollers covered the distance between the Homer High School parking lot and the tip of the Homer Spit in the 10K Run for the Bay Spit Run today.

For the second year in a row, Jake Moe of Anchorage took first place for the men, finishing in 32:40. That was a faster time than his 2012 finish of 37:29.

"That was fast," said Bill Steyer, who helped coordinate the run. Steyer also coaches the Homer High cross country and track and field teams. "Moe helps coach the Anchorage Christian Schools running program and is a really good guy,"

A trio of runners claimed first place for the women. Raising their clasped hands in victory, Aurora Waclawski, Barae Hirsch and Molly Mitchell stormed across the finish line with a time of 43:30. The three are on Homer High's running team and celebrated their finish with a dunk in Kachemak Bay, according to Mary Kate Green, who co-coaches the high school teams with Steyer and was one of the coordinators of today's run.

"They've been training this summer and are in good shape," said Steyer of the three high school athletes.

Green described the run as "absolutely amazing. I've heard it was one of the best races here in Homer. It was awesome."

An estimated 150 athletes, families and friends celebrated with lunch on Land's End Resort's deck after the run, enjoying music by Kevin Duff.

"The post-party seemed to be a real hit. Of course the weather cooperated, but there were a lot of people," said Steyer.

Both Green and Steyer thanked the event's sponsors: city of Homer Parks and Recreation, Kachemak Bay Running Club, South Peninsula Hospital and Homer News, backed by a crowd of volunteers.

"The community pitched it and made it a great race," said Steyer.

Already thinking of next year, Green said, "We're going to make this one of the best Alaskan races ever."
