This was a blast when 7 of us went in 2008, and the courses have been improved since then (different distances, more trail running)! This is an Alaska Running Cruise with husband and wife team John 'The Penguin' Bingham and Coach Jenny Hadfield. Run the world's only staged maritime marathon... a series of runs at the various ports of call and on the ship: road, cross-country, deck run. By the end of the week you'll have run the marathon distance (26.2 miles) and have seen some of the world's most beautiful landscapes. Departs from Seattle.
