Superhero run held in Kenai

The first Superhero Run was held Saturday in Kenai.

 

The run was an awareness event and benefit for the Kenai Peninsula CASA, or court-appointed special advocates who volunteer as advocates for abused and neglected children in the court system.

About 65 runners registered for the race, a number Joy Petrie, CASA coordinator, said the group was very happy about.

“We’re just so grateful for all of the support, we didn’t expect this many people to register for the first time,” she said.

In the men’s race, David Isaak was first in 19 minutes, 55.97 seconds, while Jayson Bedunnah was second at 19:58.16 and 12-year-old Derrick Bever was third at 25:26.78.

The top three women were Autumn Ball at 23:31.19, Rebeka Heames at 25:25.20 and Jessica Goggia at 29:40.50.
