The concept is this: 1 mile up the mountain, 25 miles down. Boom. It’s for those of you who want a slightly different challenge than the 25 up, 1 down variation.

What’s with the rumor that says something about a double challenge? Relax, it doesn’t mean you’re going to turn around and run in the reverse. It simply means that if you, or your team, choose to participate in both the Hatcher Pass Marathon and Relay AND the Archangel Marathon and Relay, you will be gifted with some sort of amazing keepsake and also have your name(s) prominently displayed everywhere we can think of.

Of course, you don’t have to run in both events. We would be just as happy to see you at one or the other only! Buuuuut…. I think you’d agree this is a way cooler thing to earn bragging rights about, plus the view downhill will be a totally new amazing vista!
