Mayor’s Marathon Run
The longest day of the year means a long-distance race for many in Anchorage. The Anchorage Mayor's Marathon and Half Marathon is a summer solstice tradition of more than 40 years in the making. Runners from all over the world head to Anchorage for the race. It's a tradition for Alaska Career College Therapeutic Massage Students as well. It's an opportunity to practice the skills learned in a classroom with runners needing assistance with pre- and post-run stretching or muscle relaxation.
