Sunday’s 4th Annual Hasty Half Marathon, 5K and 1-Mile Walk at Sandy Beach will be run this year in honor of Savannah Cayce and donations will be raised for her memorial fund.

Savannah Cayce, a 16-year-old high school swimmer from Juneau was killed in a tragic accident while enjoying a summer day on Auke Lake, this June.

Race participants will meet at Sandy Beach at 9 a.m. to get runners checked in. Half Marathon runners will be shuttled to the race starting line at Outer Point at 9:30 a.m., and the half marathon will begin at 10 a.m.

This is a fun run and is not officially timed, so runners should bring their own watches if they want to note their finish.

Support stations will be set up at 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11-mile points and will have water, Gatorade and an assortment of Cliff Shot Blocks and Shot Gel. Runners may wish to carry their own preferred supplements.

Volunteers are needed for support stations and food set up at the beach. A fire and snacks will be available after the events. For more information contact Sandee at or at 723-2360.

Those unable to make the run but want to make a donation to the Savannah Cayce Memorial Fund, you may do so through Wells Fargo, account number 5689091584.
