Stay Awhile
Image

Anchorage (and Alaska) has a lot to offer, so make sure you plan ahead and have enough time to see the sights. 

Visit Anchorage can help you plan your trip, but start early as Alaska is a popular place to visit - especially in the summer. Find out where to climb a glacier, see a moose, or catch a salmon. You can also find the best places to eat, sleep and dance the night away (after the marathon of course!).



Lodging

Find a place to stay at Visit Anchorage, whether you want a 5 star hotel or just a place to pitch a tent. Book early as most hotels (and campgrounds) will be full that weekend!

Weather
The average weather found on race day is partly cloudy, winds averaging up to 10 m.p.h., humidity of 40% with a temperature range of 55-70 °F. Although it has only rained on race day 7 times in the past 31 years, runners and spectators should always be prepared for rainy weather.

Sunlight
Marathon participants soon find out why Alaska is known as the "Land of the Midnight Sun". On race day, sunrise on race day will be close to 4:15 a.m. and sunset will be close to 11:45 p.m. That’s almost 19 hours and 30 minutes of sunlight. You can run all day and all night!!!
