This was a small, low-key marathon with a home-town feel. The course was a 13.1 mile out and back along the edge of Douglas Island, across the inlet from Juneau. Most of the course bordered the steep, forested slopes of the island, but the last few miles of the out and back were right along the shores of the inlet with panoramic views of the Mendenhall Glacier as well as small waterfalls. I saw numerous bald eagles, ravens, fishing vessels, and huge cruise liners. The race director allowed 1 or 2 hr early starts, which would be a good idea for slower runners if you want to partake of the post-race grilled salmon. The medal was small, but of a nice design.
