Mount Marathon

July 4

Cheer on our APU skiers as they race Mount Marathon!

Join the community of Seward for the 94th running of the Mount Marathon Race on Monday, July 4, 2022.

The men’s and women’s courses are a grueling 1.5-mile climb up, and back down, Alaska’s majestic and treacherous Mount Marathon. Runners from around the world join Alaskans in pursuit of a common goal: to safely complete this iconic footrace, whether on the podium or in the pack.

Mount Marathon awaits you, and future generations of bold mountain runners. It’s a thrill for both runners and spectators!
