Course Description

The King Salmon Marathon course is mostly flat and follows the old Copper River railroad route which led to the Kennicott Copper mines.

The marathon starts at 27 mile bridge - one of the many bridges that span the Copper River. The first half of the course is gravel road - with little to no traffic. Because the area is still wild, moose and bear are occasionally encountered.

Runners pass the "Mudhole Smith" airport at mile 13. Paved road then spans the Copper River delta.

The last 10km, are run along the blue waters of Eyak Lake.
