Registration open for Homer Half Marathon

Runners are training for the sixth annual Homer Half Marathon planned for Sept. 1. The 13.1-mile race starts at the Homer High School track at 10 a.m., runs to the end of the Homer Spit and back to the high school.

Proceeds from the Half Marathon benefit the Homer Foundation, which is a publicly supported, tax-exempt organization created to foster and encourage philanthropy and charitable giving, prudently manage endowed assets and provide year-round grants to improve the equality of life for the greater Homer area.

Preregistration for the race is encouraged. The $25 registration fee includes a T-shirt, goody bag and post-race pasta feed. T-shirts are guaranteed for registrations received before Aug. 9, and the registration fee will be $30 on the day of the race.

This year's event also will include a one mile fun run/walk following the start of the Half Marathon.

To register or for more information, write to Joy at the Homer Foundation, P.O. Box 2600, Homer, AK 99603, call (907) 235-0541, fax (907) 235-0542 or e-mail
