Rule Changes for 2015

Make sure you have thoroughly reviewed these MMR Rule Changes for the 2015 Race before submitting your Racer Registration or Lottery Application! You are solely responsible for reviewing the Race Rules every year!


Your Emergency Contact Information


Your emergency contact name and number is very important information for the Mt. Marathon Race Committee.


In recent years we have found it necessary to contact an emergency contact person for racers, not only in the event of injury or distress, but for confirmation when a runner does not appear at the starting line, finish line or other checkpoints in the race.


Every Fourth of July in Seward, as we host many thousands of visitors, we find that our cell phone towers are overwhelmed and cannot handle the volume. It is difficult to place calls to or from cells phones during that day, and we find that sending a text (which is a much smaller piece of electronic information) is more likely to be received in a timely manner, while at the same time providing a record of the contact.


Therefore, emergency contact names and numbers listed on your Mt. Marathon Race Application, should ideally be for people with cell phones that can receive text messages during races times!

2014 Mount Marathon Results

Why is my race place different than those posted on race day or in the newspaper?

A few timing chips malfunctioned during each of the races (juniors, women’s, men’s) so we didn’t have their finish read immediately. On the days following the race, we filled these racers in with their finish times as we confirmed them in back-up timing system and it displaced those racers ranked after them.
