Runners race up Ballyhoo in the 2022 Ballyhoo Mountain Run.

The annual Ballyhoo Mountain Run was this Saturday.

Over 20 runners raced up and down the grueling 1,600 foot peak in the blustery wind.

“It should be interesting today, especially with this wind,” said Brent Hudson, who moved to Unalaska last month and was running the race for the first time. “Hopefully it will push me up the mountain.”

The fastest time went to Roman Dzyuba in the Adult Male Division at 32 minutes, 8 seconds.

The record time of 24 minutes still stands. It was set by Ben Bolock in 2010.

The next race in Unalaska is the Bobby Johnson Summer Bay Classic Half Marathon on Saturday, August 6.
