Fourth of July in the US for is for many things, but for trail runners not out on a long run it is for watching the incredible and slightly insane Mount Marathon in Seward, Alaska on their Youtube livestream. Now there’s a livestream I love and one that makes me a true spectator and fan.

For the history and stats fans: the 2024 edition is the 96th running of this event. 96!

I met Matias Saari the race director of this incredible event at the US Trail Running Conference last year and we shared a few stories over beers.
