July 23-26, 2024 • Juneau, AK
In this unique Alaska Series offering Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k courses throughout a four-day span, runners can choose from two separate courses, each with their own difficulty levels and terrain. Heck, if you want to run a different race each of the four days, you’re more than welcome to!
In this one-of-a-kind multi-loop racing event comprising a mixture of paved roads, gravel trails, sizeable hills, and smooth walking paths across two different courses, the Alaska Series is one for the books.
Whether via Savikko Park on Days 1 and 2, or Twin Lakes along Glacier Highway on Days 3 and 4, participants can expect incredible Alaskan views of the mountainous landscapes while navigating creeks, rocky ascents, and even rockier descents.
Beautiful foliage throughout each course, and each is quite simple to navigate, with the entire course remaining on clearly defined paths no matter the terrain change. Course updates are currently underway for the 2024 season, so expect an updated release once courses become official and the announcement is ready to be shared!
With a “no runner left behind” policy, runners don’t need to be concerned about cut-off times in this Alaska Series. Further, because of its unique multi-loop course, there’s only one massive aid station comprising endless supplies of all a runner could need during a half marathon trail race; they even have hot chocolate.
