Boise State's Ostrander wins Mount Marathon race

SEWARD, Alaska - Fresh off her national title in the steeplechase, Boise State distance runner Allie Ostrander on Tuesday won a grueling race in her home state of Alaska.

Mount Marathon is essentially a race to the top of a mountain and back.

Ostrander took the title with a time of 48:19, the second fastest time in race history.

The Boise State redshirt sophomore is no stranger to the mountain race. As a native of Soldotna, Alaska, Ostrander won the junior championship at Mount Marathon six times.

Boise resident Morgan Arritola came in second-place in the race with a time of 51:09.

Ostrander became a national champion on June 10 when she won the 3,000 meter steeplechase at the NCAA track & field championships. It was only the fourth time in her career that she had run competitively in the event.
