Jul 5, 2018

The 2016 Mount Marathon men's champion and current course record holder took first place in yesterday's grueling race up and down the mountain that looms over Seward.

David Norris, a professional cross country skier for Alaska Pacific University won the 91st running of the event with a time of 42 minutes and 13 seconds. It was almost a minute off his record pace, but it still gave him a 20-second win over professional runner Max King of Bend, Oregon, who is a past World Mountain Running Champion. Adam Jensen of Anchorage finished third.

In an effort to bring the community of Seward together with the Spring Creek Correctional Center, a state prison across Resurrection Bay from the Eastern Kenai Peninsula city, Alaska Public Media's Anne Hillman of the Solutions Desk, recorded a forum there in September. In attendance were prisoners, administrators, and townsfolk.

While Dutch Harbor, Kodiak and Bristol Bay net all the headlines for the volume and value of their yearly commercial seafood harvests, two fishing ports on the Kenai Peninsula do rank in the top 50 nationwide in both categories.
