Alaska’s biggest Independence Day celebration is  held in Seward every Fourth of July. The combination running-climbing race to the top of 3,022-foot Mt. Marathon and back is believed by many to be the most strenuous and rugged of the five cross-country-mountain-climbing races in the world. The current record is 41:26 set in 2016. Contact Seward  Chamber of Commerce, for information.
