*** COVID-19 UPDATE AS OF JUNE 14, 2020 ***
The 2020 Juneau VIRTUAL Marathon and Half-Marathon will be conducted starting Sunday, July 19, and ending Saturday, July 25.
Registrants may run their distance of choice anytime during that period.
IMPORTANT: Please submit your time to our results manager, Myron Davis, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Juneau residents and those who plan to travel to Juneau, the course will be marked. A description of the course (i.e., road construction notice, start/finish line and turnaround points) will be posted here in the near future.
Given the reduced scope of the race, a modified fee structure has been put in place for new registrants: $20 for the marathon and $15 for the half-marathon.
For those who want to have their t-shirt and finisher's medal mailed to them, a $7.50 shipping and handling fee will be assessed. When you register, you will have the choice of accepting or rejecting that charge.
Once Myron gets your time, I will mail your materials or deliver them to the pick-up point (Juneau-based participants will be able to pick up their t-shirt and finisher's medal pending further instructions).
If you have any questions, please contact me at email@example.com or 907-209-7995.
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.
Delta Air Lines is offering discounts for air travel to and from the event. Use Meeting Event Code NMU56 when making your reservations!
