Anchorage RunFest is a big weekend Saturday with free Kid’s 2k race, Military mile, and the Anchorage Mile; Sunday- Ultra 49k, Full Marathon, Marathon relay, Half marathon, and 5k.
I ran the Anchorage RunFest Skinny Raven Half Marathon. We have two half marathons here with same Skinny Raven name. This race is put on by the local Anchorage Running Club, all volunteer race committee. I love this race so much, that I am on the race committee.
Tried to get a big group picture, but with the different start times a bit difficult. Start- 8am Ultra, 8:30am Full, 8:45am Half 9:15am 5k
Perfect weather, considering it had been raining all week. Cloudy, 54F and only light rain for a few minutes during my race. I get hot when I run, but the new Half Fanatics tank was great. On the ultra route, they saw moose. This course is an out and back on the bike trails.
The start is in downtown Anchorage by Town Square. Plenty of porta potties at the start, entertainment on the trail, aid stations with water, gatorade, fruit. At the finish, they had grilled cheese sandwich, free Alaskan Brewing Co beer, Great Harvest Bread, cookies, Chugach chocolate, fresh fruit, Kaladi Brothers Coffee, Clear Glacier water, pickle juice, and granola bar.
Added bonus was the Moose and Bear from Visit Anchorage for pictures! 50 State finishers in the half and full got a special certificate. RRCA awards, age group awards, etc. Plus they usually give a discount code for Half Fanatics and Marathon Maniacs. #medalmonday #HF16109 #MM15672 #DA3665
