Saturday’s Run to the Altar — an uphill, 13.1-mile event — marks the third wedding anniversary for Jan and Megan Spurkland. The annual repeat of running the half-marathon distance makes this the fourth time the race has occurred.

Connor McCarron led the men in a time of 1:46:30, a slim one minute, 17 seconds ahead of second-place finisher Max Kaufman. Among the women, Jane Wiebe finished in 2:05:17, followed by Elizabeth Roedl and Annie Ridgely in 2:06:06. 

“It was a great turnout, considering the weather we’ve had,” said Jan Spurkland. 

Sponsored by the Kachemak Bay Running Club, the event began at Homer High School, continued up East Hill Road and finished on East Skyline Drive.  Participants included “the whole gamut, serious runners, those doing a run-walk combo and those that were strictly walkers,” said Spurkland. “It’s neat to see that it’s accessible to everyone. …Thanks to the Kachemak Bay Running Club for their support and everybody that came out and had a great time.”
