Race Day

The Race is always on July 4

The women’s and men’s race start times alternate annually. In even-numbered years, the women’s race is the last event of the day. In odd-numbered years, men race last.

To reduce the congestion at various race points and increase runner safety, each adult division is comprised of three waves spaced five minutes apart. Adults running in the 2nd wave will not report to the starting area until the 1st wave has departed.

Racers generally begin to gather at the starting line about 10 minutes prior to each race start.

Racer T-Shirt Pickup

Each entrant that finishes will receive an official race t-shirt and patch. The shirt and patch can be picked up at race headquarters located in the Rae Building (125 3rd Avenue) by the runner following their respective race.


Showers are available at:

  • AVTEC’s 4th Avenue gymnasium open at 12 p.m. (access restricted to adult runners with bibs)
  • The Harbormaster’s office (public access)
  • Seward Waterfront Park (public access)
