Tilly takes 4th at Crow Pass

Sam Tilly, who recently completed his first year of teaching at Kenai Middle School, finished fourth at the Crow Pass Crossing on Saturday. The race goes approximately 24 miles along the Crow Pass Trail, from just north of Girdwood to the Eagle River Nature Center.

Tilly finished at 3 hours, 11 minutes and 40 seconds. The winner was Allan Spangler at 3:01:44. Also in the top 20 was Derek Gibson, who has been training and racing in the area this summer. Gibson finished 17th in 3:33:32.

Tilly will now be moving with his family to teach seventh-grade math at Chadwick International School in Songdo, South Korea.

The women’s race was won by Christy Marvin, who finished at 3:26:44, just 24 seconds off the 24-year-old record held by nine-time Crow Pass champion Nancy Pease.
