25th March Point Run in the books

Published June 22, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

It was a celebration at many levels Saturday morning at the 25th Annual March Point Run & Walk hosted by Marathon Refinery. Dozens of runners of all ages celebrated individual performances in kids’ half-mile, 5K, 10K and half marathon. All gathered for the charity event enjoyed music, food, games, prizes and trophies. An estimated $25,000 was raised by event sponsors and donors for the CHOW program, a weekend meals for schoolchildren program that falls under the umbrella of the United Way. Race results pending.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
