Women’s 10K race highlights last event in marathon series

BLYN — This year’s Jamestown S’Klallam Glow Run featured local winners, strong performances by young runners and a neck-and-neck finish in the women’s 10-kilometer distance.

The event took place Saturday night along the Olympic Discovery Trail from Blyn to Sequim and is part of the Run the Peninsula series along with the North Olympic Discovery Marathon, the Elwha Bridge run, the Railroad Bridge run and the Larry Scott Trail run. The glow run is the final race of the year in the series.

A total of 386 runners lit up the trail during the twilight hours. An additional 1,426 virtual runners representing all 50 states have registered to run, and the virtual race is still open for registration.

The event, presented by the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and Olympic Medical Center, was sponsored by the Peninsula Daily News and the Sequim Gazette.

The 5K winner was Sequim High School runner Colby Ellefson, who took first in a time of 17 minutes, 42 seconds, just edging Port Angeles High School runner Max Baeder, who posted a time of 17:47.

In the women’s 5K, the winner by more than a minute and a half was Sequim High School senior Riley Pyeatt, who recently finished fifth at the state 2A cross-country meet.

Coming in second was Port Angeles eighth-grader Leia Larson with a time of 22:39.

The 10K men’s winner was Port Angeles High School runner Langdon Larson, who won by nearly five minutes at 37:19.
