Half Marathon Relay
Image

Race starts at 9:30 am. All participants must finish by 3:00 pm. 
Starts on P Street between 9th & 10th Avenues in downtown Anchorage and will finish at the Delaney Park Strip, less than 1/2 a block from the start line.

When registering for a relay, all members of the relay must select a wave start (call it crazy), even though the only racer actually starting in a wave will be the first (1st) runner. 

This two-member team event will cover the same course as the individual half-marathon. Team runners can only run in one leg of the event. See exchange zone below.
