TYC Mermaid Festival Costume Contest

Exit Glacier Run Letter of Thanks!

Thanks to our dedicated and committed sponsors: the Terry Pollard Family, who graciously sponsored this event in Terry’s memory.  We are grateful for the facilities at the Resurrection Roadhouse.  Thank you Brad Siemsen & Dan Roby at Kenai Fjord Tours for driving the shuttle buses to the start. Thanks to the Seward Police Department who worked with us in conjunction with the Torch Run.

The Terry Pollard Memorial Exit Glacier Race in 2017 had many great competitors.  The event was filled with many individuals, families, friends, and groups, who came to support this great event.  We had walkers, joggers, runners, and competitive runners, which all made for a very fun event and an exciting atmosphere.  There were exciting close finishes with racers that came across the finish line at the same time.  Thanks to all those who cheered on the runners at the finish line. This year’s race proved to be another successful event! Go online to view results at or
