Nation's Second Largest Ski Marathon

News Release

For Immediate Release

Alaska's Cook Inlet and Chugach Mountains Backdrop for

Nation's Second Largest Ski Marathon

Anchorage, Alaska - Jan. 30 , 2004 - The Tour of Anchorage, a premier ski marathon, will take place in Anchorage, Alaska, Sunday, March 7, 2004. Part of the American Ski Marathon Series, North America's longest-running and largest citizen's racing and tour series, the Tour of Anchorage is a winter tradition for cross-country skiers of all abilities.

The well-groomed trails take skiers through wooded areas, along streams and the coastline with the nation's largest mountain and the nation's third largest state park as the backdrop. In 2002, more than 1,800 skiers participated, making it the second largest ski event in the nation.

The ski marathon consists of four point-to-point cross-country ski races: a 25K classical race and 25K,

40K and 50K freestyle races. The course starts at various locations across Anchorage and follows groomed

trails through woods, downtown and along the coast, with participants finishing at Kincaid Park. Kincaid Park

is an internationally recognized Nordic Ski competition area.

For avid cross-country skiers, Anchorage's trail system, highlighted in the Tour of Anchorage course, is

ideal. The city's urban cross-country trail system is interconnected, with 50K of lighted trails.

Entry fees range from $40 to $70. For more information about the 16th Annual Tour of Anchorage, organized by the

Nordic Ski Association of Anchorage, visit For information about traveling to Anchorage,
