KMXT's Run the Rock is a family-friendly event featuring a marathon, half marathon, 10k, and 5k. This year, there are two ways to participate: at the in-person race on October 9, 2021, or in the virtual races run anytime from October 9-11, 2021. If we have an outbreak of COVID-19, all races will be switched to the virtual option.
IN-PERSON RACES (October 9, 2021)
The marathon starts on Near Island, goes across the bridge, through town and out to the golf course then joins the half marathon and 10k courses which go through the scenic Buskin Lake valley, up and over the pass, down to Anton Larsen Bay, and back to the Bear Valley Golf Course. Part of the marathon course is on a paved road, part on a gravel road. All of the half and 10k are on gravel road courses.
There are water stops along the way (approximately every two miles).
The 5k is a flat roadway course that starts and finishes at Bear Valley Golf Course.
VIRTUAL RACES (October 9-11, 2021)
Participants can also choose to run the races on their own time between October 9th and October 11th. In the case of the virtual race, runners designate their own course and race day - uploading their results when done.
Race Bibs and t-shirts must be picked up on Wednesday, October 6th from Noon to 7:00 PM and on Friday, October 8th from 9 AM to 6:00 PM at 620 Egan Way.
