ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - The Kodiak Invite cross country race featured four of the top five finishers in the 3200-meter championship race in 2020.

Emily Erickson continued her race win streak, winning her third race in a row. Erickson’s Dimond counterpart Jared Gardiner had his race win streak snapped but still put down a great time to get second place.

The winner of the boy’s race may look familiar and that is because Daniel Abramowicz is the reigning champion in the 3200-meter race.
