Inmates cheer as more than 200 race in annual 4-miler near Eagle River prison

Thursday, August 9, 2018 - 14:27

Eagle River’s Tucker Lien finished second Saturday at the annual Running Free 4-Miler footrace in Eagle River.

Lien completed course from Eagle River High School to Hiland Mountain Correctional Center and back in 25 minutes, 42 seconds, more than a minute behind winner Todd Jackson of Anchorage. Jackson finished in 24:16, with Anchorage’s Gavin Kentch third in 25:53.

Racers made one loop around the women’s prison, where participants in the HMCC Running Free Alaska program cheered them on.

The Running Free Alaska program was started in 2012 and now impacts about 150 inmates each year, according to the race website. Runners train three days a week in the spring and summer.

More than 200 racers participated in this year’s event, with 162 women and 44 men completing the course. Tuluksak’s Michelle Mitchell won the women’s division in 26:14, with Eagle River’s Heather Velasquez the top local in 12th place. Anchorage’s Danelle Winn was second in 26:41, with fellow Anchorage racer Lori Deschamps third in 27:47.
