Lucy Robinson started her running group, Southeast Beasts, in 2012. The group is meant to offer both new and experienced runners an informal, fun place for people to exercise and enjoy the Alaskan outdoors.

Robinson is now helping spread her love of running to the next generation. Once a week, volunteering with the Wrangell Parks and Recreation Department, she leads a group of kids on a fun run through Volunteer Park, next to Evergreen Elementary school.

"We do this every Monday that we can, unless something else is scheduled," she said. "Rain or shine we run around the big loop."
