Liz Balsan, a former state track champion for Anchorage Christian, challenged for the overall victory in Saturday's 27th annual Salmon Run.

Balsan finished three seconds behind Isaac Dammeyer, a West High skier and runner who won the 5-kilometer race in 18 minutes, 27 seconds. Balsan, who ran to two state titles for ACS as a senior in 2016, claimed second place overall in 18:30.

Balsan finished 83 seconds ahead of the next-fastest woman, Morgan Ekemo (19:23).

In the 10K race, Patrick Conway edged Gregory Encelewski by 10 seconds to win in 36:37, and Sara Bryan topped the women in 45:59.

More than 500 runners finished the two races, which started and ended at Inlet View Elementary School
