Hundreds of runners take on Larry Scott Trail

High-schoolers, locals among 264 live-event entrants

PORT TOWNSEND — Athletes from the North Olympic Peninsula shined in the third annual Larry Scott Trail 5K/10K/half-marathon Run on Saturday.

A total of 264 racers ran on race day, taking advantage of the first live Larry Scott Trail event in two years.

Another 1,301 people from all 50 states have registered to run the race virtually. The virtual race is still open for registration at https://tinyurl.com/LarryScott2021.

The Larry Scott Trail Run is the fourth of five Run the Peninsula races, sponsored by the Peninsula Daily News and Sequim Gazette and presented by Jefferson Healthcare and Olympic Medical Center.

Race director Victoria Jones said the weather was windy, but the route was protected from the wind.

Three of the winners are high school students in Port Townsend and Port Angeles. One of them, Leia Larson, is an eighth-grader at Stevens Middle School.

Jason Hect of Redmond won the men’s half-marathon with a time of 1 hour, 18 minutes and 51 seconds.

Although there were runners from all around western Washington and as far away as Oregon, Hect was the only non-Peninsula-area winner.

Finishing second in the men’s half-marathon was Port Townsend City Manager John Mauro, who crossed the line in 1:23.03.

The women’s half-marathon winner was Port Angeles’ Elizabeth Boyden, who won in 1:49.29.

Langdon Larson, a member of the Port Angeles High School cross-country team and part of a family of champion distance runners, won the 10K in a time of 38:55. Tadu Dollarhide of Port Townsend, a member of the East Jefferson girls cross-country team, won the women’s 10K in 47:28.

Max Baeder of Port Angeles, Larson’s teammate on the Roughriders’ cross-country team, won the men’s 5K in 21:53, while Leia Larson won the women’s 5K in 21:53.

The other Run the Peninsula races are the Elwha Bridge Run, the Railroad Bridge run, the North Olympic Discovery Marathon and the upcoming Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe Night Run on Dec. 4 in Blyn. This event has 5K and 10K runs. To register, people can go to https://tinyurl.com/JamestownRun2021.
