Houston Laws, 28, topped the men’s long course in Saturday’s Magnificent Mendenhall Mud Puddle Meet and Jane Boer, 30, led the women on the lengthy course, while Ryan Lee, 17, was the fastest male one-miler and Ellie Knapp, 9, the fastest female.

Laws posted a 47-minute 58-second outing on the course that began in front of the Soboleff Building on the University of Alaska Southeast’s Auke Lake Campus and headed past the Chapel by the Lake, along the lake and turned left on the Brotherhood Bridge (Kaxdegoowu Heen Dei) Trail.

Boer had an adjusted time of 56:10 as, even though the course was masterminded by running legend Glenn Frick, she took a wrong turn at mile 5.9. Lee hit a 6:01 mile and Knapp cruised in with a 7:33.

When runners made the Brotherhood Bridge they ran the river bike trail to River Road, turned left onto Back Loop Road and to the Auke Lake Trail at Goat Hill. A left at that trail led to its end and a quick right took participants back to the UAS front entrance.

Next up for racers is Saturday’s Cameron Clark Memorial Run, sponsored by Nugget Alaskan Outfitter, beginning at 9 a.m. at the Lena Beach picnic area. Starting with a left the course follows Lena Loop Road to a right on Glacier Highway, along the pavement to another right back on the Point Lena Loop Road, and on to the finish. Race contact is Dan Robinson at 364-2521 or robidanc@gmail.com. Races will be a 1K and 5K. Pre-registration cost is $1 for under age of 18 and $5 for adults or $10 on the day of the race.
