In the grueling Alaska Mountain Wilderness Classic, where contestants race unsupported through the wildest country of Alaska, just finishing can be an honor. But when you’re not only the first to finish, but the only one of 29 competitors to do so in the scheduled time, the honor gets doubled.
Homer racer Josh Mumm did just that, winning the 250- to 300-mile 2015 classic with a time of 5 days, 22 hours. Starting on June 28, Mumm finished about 8 a.m. July 4 at Red Shirt Lake near Willow.
