A swift race from park to roadhouse

Dozens of runners and walkers swarmed over Herman Leirer Road on Saturday to run in the Exit Glacier Run beginning at the gates of the Kenai Fjords National Park. The 5-kilometer and 10-kilometer run/walk was renamed in 2008 to honor the memory of former Terry's Tires' proprietor Terry Pollard. Alaska law enforcement agencies, represented by runners from around the state, joined with mostly local participants to support Special Olympics Alaska with the annual Torch Run. From first to fifth, top 5-kilometer finishers were Cole Curtner, Flip Foldager, Patricia Foldager, Joshua De La Cruz and Ashley Guernsey. X of Fairbanks technically finished third but was the lead runner for the parallel torch run. The top five 10-kilometer runners, who started further back on the park road, were Pyper Dixon, Tommy Fraychineaud, Luke Rosier, Ben Allen and Jane Boer.
