Mount Marathon Race
POSTPONED TO 2021
The Mount Marathon Race in Seward, Alaska is among the oldest mountain footraces. According to folklore, the tradition of the Mount Marathon Race began when two sourdoughs argued about the possibility of climbing and descending the mountain in less than an hour. The foot race is a climb and descent on Mount Marathon – a mile and a half up and a mile and a half down, complete with cliffs, scree fields, waterfalls, and a spectacular view.
