Jeffrey Early topped the course in Saturday’s Mount Roberts Tram Race in a blistering time of 36 minutes and 35 seconds.
“I just wanted to go out and have fun,” Early said. “I have been thinking about running this anyway.”
Early, a late ‘80s Juneau-Douglas High School graduate, now living Kirkland, Wash., was visiting family.
“I was planning on running up Mt. Roberts anyway this weekend,” Early said. “And there just happened to be a race, so it was great. From the tram to the cross was the hardest part.”
