The Mayor’s Half-Marathon Relay consists of two racers.

The race starts in Kincaid Park inside the ConocoPhillips Soccer Stadium.  Racers will head east, out of the park on the main road.  (note: one lane will be closed for racers) 

At about mile 1.5 the course turns west and onto the multi-use paved trail to return back to the Kincaid Chalet area, where you prepare to head downhill on the trail following the same route as the full marathon. The course meanders downhill through a cottonwood forest to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail following along the Cook Inlet with breathtaking views of the Alaska Range. If you are lucky, you may see beluga whales bobbing in the water.

At about 12.5 miles the route heads north, up N Street.   Here, runners hit the home stretch through Anchorage's oldest neighborhood, and finishes at Delaney Park Strip in downtown.
