    Cordova is a great little coastal Alaskan town. The whole family had a great time exploring around it. The race itself is a point-to-point down the only 20+ mile road around. The road was about 50% gravel and 50% paved. The race was small (~20 marathoners) and traffic light so for the first half I mostly felt like I was on an open run by myself. Once we met up with the half-marathon runners it started to feel a little more like a race and finished to a good crowd for a town so small.
    I’d recommend this race to anyone looking for a very Alaskan race off the beaten path.
