ach year the city of Seward hosts a hill-climbing running race. The foot race is a climb and descent on Mt. Marathon – a mile and a half up and a mile and a half down, complete with cliffs, scree fields, waterfalls, and a spectacular view.  This annual event draws runners from around the world. I have yet to try the race, but climbed and back side this summer. Here are a few photos from that adventure.
