Salmon Run Series



The Salmon Run Series was created by Allie Ostrander as an idea for the 2012 Caring for the Kenai contest.  Earning 2nd Place was not enough for Allie.  She wanted to see her project come to fruition.  And it has!  The Salmon Run Series was launched in summer 2012 and hasn’t looked back.  With over 100 runners participating regularly, the Salmon Run Series has taken a spot in the local runners calendars for several years.
