Seward is known for its 4th of July Race up Mt Marathon. It’s only 3022’ – with a general 38 degree angle. Steepest slopes 60 degrees. Record time for this 3.1 mile fun 43:23 minutes. WOW!!

While walking along the water today we saw an RV with a SKP decal – of course we had to knock and say hello. Surprise! We had met David & Linda Hatcher at Gillette Escapade 2011. They too are here to see the 4th of July Race and festivities. Also heard Mike and Terri Church will be here to watch the race. A small world indeed.
