It's finally here!
You know you've dreamed about running the opposite direction in the Hatcher Pass Marathon & Relay so here it is!
Local time: 4:35 AM
Archangel Marathon & Relay has the same amazing scenery, challenging course, and fantastic people but will test an entirely different set of muscles on the (almost) totally downhill course. Not to mention different views and appreciation for the MatSu Valley in all its early autumn glory.
The short description: 1ish mile sharply uphill then 25 miles (mostly) downhill. Some miles with big drops and others less pronounced! Check out the website (link above) for all the details you could need. Available for solo runners or for 2-3 person really teams. You choose.
This race is the second half to earn some extra distinction with the Gold Mint Challenge.
