The sun may or not show for summer solstice but the runners will! The Anchorage Mayor's Marathon & Half Marathon is an over 40 year summer solstice tradition. It is a destination run for a lot of long distance runners to take in the sites from along the route from the foothills of the Chugach Mountains on the east side of Anchorage, up the Chester Creek Trail and in to town at Delaney Park. Organized by the University of Alaska Anchorage and Anchorage Parks & Recreation, five running races are held simultaneously - including the Midnight Sun Marathon (26.2 miles), Alaska Half Marathon (13.1 miles), a marathon relay (4 x 6.5 mile legs), Coastal 5K and Buddy Half Marathon, in which teams of two or three runners split the half marathon course into sections relay style. Plus the free kids run, The Healthy Futures Kids' Mile, also takes place June 21. The marathon course takes marathoners from the foothills of the Chugach Mountains on the east side of Anchorage, up the Chester Creek Trail and in to town at Delaney Park. For those with greater ambitions with their running shoes, the marathon course is certified by USA Track and Field  is a qualifying race for the Boston Marathon. FOR MORE INFO and TO SIGN UP GO HERE
