The word “inspire” comes from the Latin root “inspiratus”, which means “to blow” or ”breathe into”. This is what Irene Webber did when she ran the first (and her first) King Salmon Marathon, by herself, in 1986. With her perseverance and enthusiasm, she created an event in which all of us have been inspired to take part. Her motto “See you on the road!” means just that, as she encourages others to live a healthier life. Our Alaska Salmon Runs honor wild salmon, the keystone species of our daily lives in this commercial fishing village and the anchor of our surrounding ecosystem.
