Just 16 years old, Ephriam Kalmakoff became the youngest winner of the Mount Marathon race in Seward with a time of 52 minutes, 35 seconds. He lived in Seward’s Jesse Lee Home for orphans and wore his Boy Scout uniform on race day. He beat a field of past champs and veteran racers while setting a record that stood for 29 years. These days, runners under 18 compete in the junior race, which goes halfway up the mountain.
