Half Marathon Relay

Race start is 9:00 am. All participants must finish the race by 3:00 pm.
NEW FOR 2022 - Start will be at the ConocoPhillips Soccer Stadium at Kincaid Park and finish at the Delaney Park Strip in downtown Anchorage (same start and finish as the Marathon). 

COURSE DESCRIPTION: New in 2022!

This two member team event will cover the same course as the individual half-marathon. See exchange zones below.

The Mayor's Half-Marathon starts in Kincaid Park at the ConocoPhillips Soccer Stadium and follows the same route as the full marathon until the two groups separate at Eastchester Park. The first mile meanders downhill through a cottonwood forest to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. The next eight miles follow along Cook Inlet with breathtaking views of the Alaska Range. If you are lucky, you may see beluga whales bobbing in the water.
 
At mile nine, the course heads east—towards the Chugach Mountains — and the Coastal Trail meets the Chester Creek Trail. As you pass Westchester Lagoon, watch for birds, such as trumpeter swans, mallards, and arctic terns.

Soon after mile 11, the route loops through Eastchester Park. Following E. 20th Ave., runners return to the Chester Creek trail—now traveling west back towards Westchester Lagoon. Here, runners hit the home stretch. Heading north on N St. through Anchorage's oldest neighborhood, the race finishes at Delaney Park Strip in downtown.
