Tina Torun- (HF16109, MM15672, DA3665) – Anchorage RunFest was this past weekend (August 19-20, 2023), It is always held on the 3rd weekend of August. This is my favorite Alaska race to see Marathon Maniacs and Half Fanatics. I maybe biased because I am on the race committee and help them with their social media. But with that being said, I also recommend to the RD to give MM/HF a discount code for registration. As the new Alaska MM/HF/DA ambassador, I did my best to welcome all club members that I saw. I didn’t meet everyone, but I hope you all enjoyed your time in Alaska. This year, we truly had the best race weather and with the sunshine, I felt a little bit hot by the end of the race. The race starts in downtown Anchorage, goes along the Coastal Trail and uses the bike trails/multi-use path to tour the city. The Marathon and Ultra 49k go further west on the Coastal trail before turning back and merging with the half marathon to go on the Chester Creek trail and turn around before the university trails to head back to downtown. There is a hill to go up in the end at 0.5 miles before the finish line. All of our local races that go to downtown end on a hill! One of my friends gave me some of these photos when she was doing the marathon relay.
