6th Annual

HATCHER PASS MARATHON & RELAY, THE BASICS:

When:  Saturday, July 9, 2016 at 9 a.m. (early start at 7 a.m.)

What and where: The 6th Annual Hatcher Pass Marathon & Relay is a low-key, uphill marathon in beautiful Willow, Alaska.  The route follows Willow Fishhook road (aka Hatcher Pass Rd) all the way over the summit, and finishes at the Independence Mine State Historical Park "Bowl" parking area.  The course goes gradually uphill (or relentlessly uphill, depending on your mood) for the first 25 miles; the last mile includes a cramp-inducing downhill, and then one more uphill grunt to the finish line.
