This race was not as nice as I was hoping it would be. The out-and-back course made traffic an issue after the first turnaround because of both the marathon and half-marathon. With an event of this size and a winding course, this becomes problematic.
Starting a marathon walk before the run also makes no sense. The course itself is nice and has a nice view of the coastline and goes through wooded areas. It is also very flat aside from an incline at the end.

Unfortunately, the benefits of the easy course were nullified by poor course marking and traffic. I had to go off-track to avoid some runners who were just listening to music and not paying attention.

Having run the Anchorage Mayor’s Marathon, I recommend that race over this one, despite the more difficult course. It is better organized and has better scenery.
