Astounding Alaska


 

Time for a quick dip!

This was shot in Alaska during Kathleen’s first ever Marathon. She had trained verosciously with Team in Training to support  The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society which is focussed to raise as much money as possible to make a difference for cancer patients and their families. TNT has trained more than half a million runners, bikers, hikers and tri-athletes and raised over 1 billion dollars to fund life saving cancer research. Kathleen has since run in numerous half marathons throughout California!

Nearly 4,000 runners and walkers make the trip every year to run along the coastal trails of Anchorage overlooking the waters of the Gompertz
Channel at the annual summertime Mayor’s Midnight Sun Marathon, Half Marathon & 5-Mile Run, which is timed to coincide with the summer solstice, when the longest day of the year brings a full day of sunlight over this subarctic region.

Framed by the spectacular mountains all around the city and the forested trails along the course, the race offers breathtaking views of the nearby Alaska Wilderness as it takes runners through local landmarks like Earthquake Park, Point Woronzof and the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail.
