Join the community of Seward for the 93rd annual running of the Mount Marathon Race!

Race day is always July 4. The men’s and women’s course is a grueling 1.5 mile climb up, and back down Alaska’s majestic and treacherous Mount Marathon. Runners from around the world join Seward residents and runners from all corners of Alaska, in the pursuit of a common goal: to win, place, or simply complete this iconic foot race.
