The Marathon and Half Marathon are USATF-certified (USATF cert. no. AK14008FW), out and back courses. The events are run at sea level on the lightly traveled, two-lane Douglas Highway/North Douglas Highway in Juneau, Alaska. By virtue of its certification, the marathon can be used as a time qualifier for the Boston Marathon. The moderately hilly course has been compared in difficulty to the Boston Marathon. The scenic course offers views of mountains, glaciers, forests, and the ocean. The start/finish is near the picnic shelter at Sandy Beach, in Douglas. The Deci-marathon and half-marathon are also run along the same course.
Marathon and half-marathon entrants get a technical t-shirt; deci- runners get a cotton t-shirt. All finishers get a medal!
