Rideout tops zombie-pirate marathon

Abby Rideout was the overall marathon winner Saturday in the Zombie-Pirate Festival, a series of four races held to benefit the blood bank and food bank.

Rideout topped a field of men and women, finishing the 26.2-mile course in 3 hours, 40 minutes, 32 seconds. Ryan Bandy, the top man, was second overall in 3:53.00.

More than 600 pounds of food was collected at the race and organizers have set a goal of getting donations of 300 to 500 units of blood this month.

Anyone who mentions the races when giving blood at the Blood Bank of Alaska this month will get a 20 percent discount at REI or a week's pass to The Alaska Club, race organizer Mike Halko said.
