Are you interested in competing in this year’s Mount Marathon Race on the Fourth of July? Well then visit www.seward.com or contact the Seward Chamber of Commerce to submit your application. It MUST be submitted by midnight of March 31. The Mount Marathon Race consists of a “grueling” 3,022 foot climb and descent over rocks, roots, cliffs, and waterfalls. Application fees are $65 for adults and $25 for junior runners. Veterans and 2011 finishers have priority with the remaining slots filled through a lottery system. The results will be announced mid April. Again, visit www.seward.com or call the Seward Chamber of Commerce at 224-8051.
