About This Activity

Join us for a wild weekend of running, music, and singing out salmon! We hold five distance events the same day:  the King Salmon Marathon, the Sockeye Half-Marathon, the Coho 10K, the Humpy 5K, and the Smolt One Mile Fun Run/Walk.  All events start "out the road" and are run one-way into town (except the One Mile, which starts at Race HQ, the Cordova hospital).  The race course traverses the Copper River delta where runners are treated to soaring views of mountains being carved by glaciers, wildflowers, and blue water rivers and lakes. A salmon barbecue dinner is held post-race.
