Great Alaskan Running Cruise

This was a blast when 7 of us went in 2008! The Great Alaskan Running Cruise is designed with every type of runner and walker in mind. You'll actively explore "the Last Frontier" with your own two feet, and take on the challenge of running or walking the beautiful trails in Anchorage, Juneau and Ketchikan, and a fun and amazing race in Skagway. Every event is well marked, safe and by the end of the week you'll earn a big honkin' Alaskan Running Cruise Medal! Starts in Anchorage and ends in Vancouver.
