Rolling course set in beautiful scenic Wrangell along the Inside Passage of Alaska, complete with aid stations and support staff.  Course runs on cement sidewalk and pavement roads. A large section is along the waterfront where you may see a whale or seals, and will always see eagles. Make it a family vacation and spend a few days seeing the spectacular sights that define Alaska.
