WE’RE BACK — AND THRILLED ABOUT IT!

Welcome to Seward for the 93rd running of the Mount Marathon Race, the oldest mountain race in North America and possibly its craziest! It’s been a tough past year navigating the pandemic, and we were heartbroken to have to cancel in 2020 for the first time since World War II. Our goal this year is to provide a safe and fun event for 900 racers, 300+ volunteers and officials, thousands of spectators, and our sponsors (among them new presenting sponsor Salomon). By necessity, things will look a little different this year, notably the race date of July 7 designed to limit crowding. Please be mindful of others’ space and follow our mitigation measures. With extra wave starts, we’ve shifted the start times slightly — the juniors will race at 8:30 a.m., the women at 11 a.m. and the men at 3 p.m. What hasn’t changed is the essence of Mount Marathon: intrepid racers from age 7 to age 85 — way to go, Chad Resari! — will scramble up the mountain and run and stumble down it. Fans on Jefferson and 4th Avenues will then spur runners, some of them a little battered, to the finish, where friends, family and fellow racers will help them revel in their accomplishment. Whether you’re a hardened Alaskan, a first-time visitor to Seward, a newbie racer or a veteran of dozens of Mount Marathons, we’re psyched you’re here and wish you an amazing experience. – The Seward Chamber of Commerce and Mount Marathon Race Committee

MOUNT MARATHON

Welcome to a breathtaking land shaped by glaciers, nestled between mountains and the ocean. Adventurous travelers journey to Seward to hike stunning trails, experience abundant wildlife, paddle and fish vibrant waters, and to explore our historic community. This is the ancestral homeland of the Alutiiq, or Sugpiaq, people, who have called the rocky coasts and glacial bays home since time immemorial.

With three races throughout the day, you’ll have plenty of time to see the race from different vantage points. You can watch the start and finish on 4th Avenue, or head to Jefferson Street and see how racers tackle the base of the mountain. For those who want to do some climbing of their own, spectators are invited on the trail, but please take the HIKING TRAIL, which starts at the intersection of 1st and Monroe Streets.

3 P.M.—MEN’S RACE

Racers will start in waves of 50 two minutes apart. The women’s and men’s race start times alternate annually.

Wherever you watch, be sure to obey race officials and volunteers. And definitely STAY OFF the RACE TRAIL. Racers have trained hard for the Mount Marathon Race, don’t be the person who messes up their day.

2021 MOUNT MARATHON RACE GUIDE


Mount Marathon & COVID-19 While the pandemic in 2020 forced the first Mount Marathon Race cancellation since World War II, the iconic event is back this year – albeit with a new date and COVID-19 mitigation measures. The Mount Marathon Race Committee announced in February that it was shifting the race away from the Fourth of July holiday weekend to July 7. “The crowds will be much smaller on a Wednesday and that is important for holding a race as popular as Mount Marathon during COVID-19,” race director Matias Saari said. Due to the inconvenience of the date change and the reluctance for some to participate during the pandemic, organizers gave entrants – the roster had been rolled over from 2020 – the option to race or take the year off without penalty. More than 250 chose to defer, leaving a roster of 875 men, women and junior racers. The Seward Chamber of Commerce will still host the Fourth of July Festival in Seward with fireworks, vendors, a parade and the Mini Mount Marathon Race for kids.

unanimously to cancel. Mount Marathon was not alone: only a handful of small running races were held in 2020 and other large events like the Forest Fair in Girdwood and the State Fair in Palmer were also nixed. Mount Marathon was also not held from 1920-24 (reportedly due to the Alaska Railroad construction), from 1932-38 and finally in 1942. Scores of Mount Marathon diehards might still have spent the Fourth of July in Seward in 2020, but a COVID-19 outbreak in late June forced the cancellation of the Fourth of July festival and only a smattering of racers came to run the mountain per tradition (among them Fred Moore for the 51st straight year, former record holder Bill Spencer and “The Birdman” Brian Stoecker). Meanwhile, the 2021 race will look unlike any Mount Marathon in its 93-year history. As of late-May -- changes were still possible due to the everchanging nature of the pandemic, race organizers planned the following mitigation measures: • • • • •

An online auction in early June instead of a live auction the night before the race. No use of indoor facilities. Wave starts of 50 racers two minutes apart. Required face coverings for racers before the start and after the finish – but not during the race. A runners’ lane on Jefferson and Fourth Avenues designed to provide separation from spectators. An expectation that finishers not linger at Fourth and Washington but continue down an extended chute to Railway Avenue before dispersing. No awards ceremony.

Holding the Mount Marathon Race on a date other than July 4 has precedence: in 1927, tourists unable to extend their visit beyond the weekend successfully lobbied organizers to move the race to Sunday, July 2.

In 2020, the race committee initially decided that July 4 was not possible while holding out hope for a race over Labor Day Weekend on Sept. 6. Ultimately, however, it voted

“Our mission is to make the event as safe as possible for racers, volunteers, officials, sponsors, spectators and the residents of Seward,” Saari said.

Roster Previews By Matias Saari Mount Marathon Race Director

Women’s Race Preview Three champions, a superlative climber and a junior winner highlight the women’s field at the 93rd Mount Marathon Race on July 7. Hannah LaFleur proved she is not only adept on water (as a kayak guide in Seward), but also on land, as she surprised onlookers by rocketing past Christy Marvin and Julianne Dickerson on the downhill in 2019 to claim her first title in 53 minutes, 24 seconds. Lafleur, 32, surely won’t be overlooked in 2021, and she’ll have plenty of competition in her bid to repeat. Topping that list is Marvin, 40, of Palmer. Her resume includes two wins and a remarkable seven straight top-three finishes (2013-2019). The other relatively recent champion entered is two-time Olympian Holly Brooks (wins in 2012 and 2014). As a mother of twins now removed from hard year-round ski training, Brooks placed 10th in 2019. Rosie Frankowski is another Olympian (2018) who could be a threat, par ticularly if she improves her downhill. In 2018, Frankowski ran 37:06 to the top of Mount Marathon — only record-holder Emelie Forsberg and Allie Ostrander have gone faster — but finished seventh due to a cautious downhill. She’s shooting for a sub-37 uphill in 2021 and likely won’t take risks again going downhill. “Since it’s an Olympic year the main goal is to not get injured but I’m hoping to at least be braver 6 | WO M E N ’ S R AC E PR E V E IW 

than last time and go in the snow!,” Frankowski said. The debut of another diminutive climber, Allie McLaughlin of Colorado Springs, Colo., will have to wait at least a year. McLaughlin won the 2014 World Long Distance Mountain Running Championships, has claimed the Pikes Peak Ascent and holds the fastest known women’s time on the famous Manitou Incline — but opted to defer her entry to 2022. Kendall Kramer, however, plans to make her women’s race debut. The U.S. Ski Team member, now at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, won the 2018 junior race, and countless state skiing and running championships in high school. “I’d love a top 10 this year!! And not to somersault down the mountain,” said Kramer, who will spend the summer training in Anchorage. Other past top-five entrants include Dickerson, who ran 54:03 for third place in 2019; Najeeby Quinn, who ran a personal-best 52:42 in 2018; and Ann Spencer, who has struggled with injuries since placing fifth in 2017. Spencer, a daughter of race legend Bill Spencer, will be joined in the women’s field this year by sister Nowelle Spencer, who reached the finish first in an unofficial event after the junior race was canceled in 2019 due to wildfire smoke. The 2018 champion, Jessica Yeaton, confirmed she won’t be racing in 2021. So did downhill whiz Denali Foldager-Strabel, second in 2018, who gave bir th to a son in May. Her mom Patti Foldager, however, will go for her women’s record 38th finish, as will Ellyn Brown. The women’s field also includes Carol Seppilu of Nome, the 2020 Alaska Federation of Natives “Woman of Courage.” Seppilu has publicly suppor ted suicide prevention effor ts after surviving her own suicide attempt at age 16.

2021 MOUNT MARATHON RACE GUIDE


Junior Race Preview With both 2018 champions aging up to the adult races, the juniors will crown new champions this year. Ali Papillon was just 13 years old in 2018 when he placed second to Michael Connelly in 28 minutes, 40 seconds. Three years later, Papillon, now of Boulder, Colo., is by far the top returning racer in the event that travels halfway up and down Mount Marathon and is open to 7-17-year-olds (see separate ar ticle about Papillon in this guide). With so many junior boys moving up to the men’s race, the next nearest returning racer is Aaron Maves of Anchorage, who placed 20th in 2018, 3:43 behind Papillon. Coby Marvin of Palmer, whose parents both excel in the adult races, was 22nd three years ago and also looks to make a big jump. The top returning girls are Katey Houser of Palmer (third in 2018), Teagan Smith of Anchorage (fifth) and Sadie Benter of Anchorage (seventh). The majority of the junior roster is comprised of first-time racers, in par t because a lottery was held for juniors in 2021, unlike for the adult races.

2021 MOUNT MARATHON RACE GUIDE

J U N I O R R AC E PR E V I E W | 7


Men’s Race Preview The King of Mount Marathon hopes to be back for the first time in three years. David Norris, a professional Nordic skier who divides his time between Anchorage and Albuquerque, N.M., claimed the record in 2016 from Spaniard Kilian Jornet in 41 minutes, 26 seconds. Then in 2018 he held off Max King of Oregon. Norris, 30, skipped the smoke-impacted 2019 Mount Marathon and of course missed last year’s race, which was canceled due to the pandemic. Norris had a pair of Top-20 performances at the 2021 Nordic Skiing World Championships in Germany despite contracting COVID-19 earlier in the season; he also aspires to ski at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing. Norris’ combination of superior climbing ability — he reached the top in 30:35 in 2016 and hopes to go even faster in 2021 — and downhill strength and agility make him tough to beat. However, Norris may need to juggle a training camp on the Eagle Glacier that conflicts with the rescheduled Mount Marathon on July 7.

“I’ll have to figure out something with that,” Norris said on May 16. “Ideally my legs will be healthy and an alternative glacier camp option will be available.” Norris’ teammate on the Anchorage Pacific University Nordic Ski Club, Scott Patterson, is in a similar situation. Though on the Mount Marathon roster, his status as of May 16 was “unknown” as preparing for the 2022 Olympics are his priority. In 2017, Patterson buildt a big lead on the Mount Marathon climb and coasted to victory. Lars Arneson looks to improve on his third-place finish in 2019. Arneson won the Alaska Mountain Runners’ Grand Prix that year and claimed the first two major races of 2021: the Crazy Lazy mountain race in Palmer and the Turnagain Arm Trail Run. This year’s Mount Marathon is marked by a notable absence: King won’t defend his 2019 title because he’ll be leading a youth running camp starting July 6. A handful of talented runners from outside Alaska look to make their mark. Dakota Jones of Bozeman, Mont., is the most recognizable name -- he’s done well at trail and mountain races around the globe representing Salomon and famously beat Jornet at the 2012 Transvulcania Ultramarathon in 2012. With Salomon as the new presenting sponsor, they’ll also enter Christian Gering, a Native American racer from Santa Fe, N.M.; Johnny Luna-Lima (Pleasanton, Calif.), who’s found success in obstacle-course racing; and Darren Thomas (Reno, Nev.), who had a breakthrough runner-up result at the 2019 North Face Endurance Challenge 50-miler in 2019. Sam Hendry, a college ski teammate of Anchorage’s Luke Jager at the University of Utah, successfully petitioned for entry in 2020 and will participate this year. The Canadian placed runnerup at the 2020 NCAA Nordic Ski Championships. Jager, a threetime Mount Marathon junior champ, matched that feat in 2021. Pyper Dixon is the top returning Seward runner after placing fourth in 2019, a dramatic improvement from 42nd two years earlier.

Age Group Records JUNIOR RACE The Junior Race (ages 7-17) began in 1964. The age group divisions were created in 1994. This race follows the same route as the senior race but racers turn around halfway to the summit. Boys’ Record: Bill Spencer

1973 24:30

Girls’ Record: Allison Ostrander 2014 28:54

Adding intrigue is the return of former Palmer resident Rory Egelus for the first time since 2014. Now living in Bozeman, Egelus is a three-time junior champ (2002-04). Eighty-one-year-old Fred Moore will be back to continue a streak that will likely never be broken: his 51st consecutive Mount Marathon. Not too far behind, Braun Kopsack is seeking his 43rd finish, Flip Foldager his 40th, Steve “Crazy Billy” Carroll his 39th and Everett Billingslea his 39th. The most famous entrant is surely Dallas Seavey, who won his fifth Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in March. He’ll be racing Mount Marathon for the sixth time, with a best result of 78th in 2016.

However, the most determined firsttime men’s entrant might be Michael Connelly (pictured below) of Chugiak. He won in 2018 and was ready to take a crack at Bill Spencer’s longstanding junior record in 2019, only to see the junior race canceled due to wildfire smoke. Representing the U.S. at the 2019 Skyrunning Youth World Championships in Italy in 2019, the Chugiak resident won a bronze medal. “I’m feeling strong and full of adrenaline,” Connelly said in May. “After it being canceled twice I have a new perspective for (Mount Marathon). The goal is really just to go out there and show them who I am and what I am capable of.”

Sheri & Trent Boggs

While Trent had played spor ts such as volleyball and soccer, Sheri was not a runner when she star ted her Mount Marathon journey.

By Kat Sorensen

“Sheri star ted doing it, which scared the crap out of me,” Trent said. “She was absolutely not the type of person that should have gone up the mountain.”

When Sheri and Trent Boggs toe the downtown Seward start line at this year’s Mount Marathon Race, they’ ll be doing so for their 20th and 30th times — and with decades of family history, memories, and a cancer battle behind them. The couple, who both served in the military, came to Alaska for a four-year tour in 1987 and haven’t left. The Boggses initially lived in Anchorage and Eagle River with their two daughters, but recently retired and moved to Soldotna. This leaves them in the “flat land,” but they’re excitedly training for this banner year in their racing history, which all star ted when Trent and some friends from his squadron headed to Seward for the Four th of July in 1989. On a whim, one of his buddies signed up for Mount Marathon, and Trent was hooked.

Sheri’s rookie run wasn’t without incident. After the turnaround she decided to butt-slide and suffered snowburn. “I couldn’t sit for several days and that was the last time I sat in the snow,” Sheri said. They have been climbing from downtown Seward to Race Point and back ever since. What keeps them returning year after year? It’s not for fast times or breaking records; it’s to set a good example for daughters Rebecca and Nikole.

“We all sat there with our jaws on the ground,” Trent said. “When he got back down alive, I knew I wanted to do that.” So Trent signed up the next year. Eight years later, in 1998, Sheri joined the iconic event. They remain among the few African-American par ticipants. “I was watching him and thought that I wanted to try it and wondered how hard it could be,” she said. “I remember going to the base and realizing that it was more intense than I thought it would be.” 10 | S H E R I & T R E N T B O G G S 

2021 MOUNT MARATHON RACE GUIDE


While Trent’s fastest race was 1:26:11 in 1996, his most impressive feat is missing just one race between 1990 and 2019. That was 2009, the year his father died. Sheri has only skipped three races since 1998 and ran faster at age 57 (in 2019) than when she star ted at age 36. “We believe you star t doing something, you keep doing it and you build consistency and demonstrate to yourself and others around you drive,” Trent explained. “We never wanted to win the race, but if you set your mind to be in good shape, physically and mentally, you have to live that. Our daughters have seen that and they live it now. It has been a touchstone in our lives, and both girls went on to be athletes.” Their older daughter, Rebecca, had a scary experience at Mount Marathon in 2014 when she suffered from heat stroke and wound up in the hospital. “I was completely losing it and (Sheri) looked at me and said ‘You have to run the mountain,” said Trent. So he did. The Boggses have proven, time and time again, that they’re consistent. Even when Sheri was battling breast cancer in 2016, she raced just 10 days after finishing radiation treatment.

“When I first star ted doing radiation, I said I wanted to run Mount Marathon,” Sheri explained. “Having that race ahead of me kind of helped keep me going. I thought I’m going to get through radiation, keep training, get Trent to push me up the mountain and that helped me keep my mind off the treatment.” But pushing her through training wasn’t always easy for Trent. “As a husband and person who loves her it was inspirational and scary,” he explained. “She had faded to nothing so she just was this little scarecrow going up the mountain in front of me.” But on race day, Sheri powered up the mountain and showed that even through adversity, she was committed to the race, setting an example for her daughters. And for Trent, some of his best race-day memories involve his children. “One year I was running down 4th (Avenue) and our daughter Nikki was about six years old,” Trent said. “She got excited and ran down the street with me. It was just perfect. That was one of the best experiences with me,

getting my little timid daughter to run down the street with me. That really just brought tears to my eyes.” That timid little girl grew up to run college track in California and now lives in Seattle. Nikole was registered to run her first Mount Marathon before the cancellation in 2020 and then decided to defer her 2021 entry to next year. While Trent and Sheri are contemplating retiring from Mount Marathon with their combined 50 races after 2021, the prospect of running with Nikole might lure them into continuing. “Par t of me is saying that this will be it, but then my daughter is running it next year so I don’t know,” said Sheri, who will turn 60 on July 10, nine days before her husband celebrates the same bir thday.

Ali Papillon By Doyle Woody

the speed down. It became something I wanted to continue to do.’’

Ali Papillon’s rise as a remarkable runner seemed destined from the outset.

Linda and Dorian were introduced to mountain racing when they competed in the Alyeska Classic Mountain Run in 2010. They were immediately hooked. They loved the challenge and they also savored the family atmosphere they encountered in the mountain-running community. They brought their three children – Ali, Bodhi and daughter Ziyi – to race Alyeska the next year. Ali, just 6 when he debuted as a racer, was hooked.

He started walking at just 8 months old and was in full boogey mode a month later. When his mother, Linda Rao, walked to the library, toddler Ali made clear his dislike for sitting in a stroller and insisted on walking too. “It was a testament to what he was going to be,’’ Rao said. Papillon became a stalwart in the Mount Marathon junior boys race, where he owns four straight first-place age-group finishes, the 12-14 age-group record (28:40 in 2018) and a second-place overall finish (2018). Now, at 16, he is poised to seize overall victory. Papillon is especially eager for the march halfway up the 3,022-foot slab of pain and the rocketing descent because it has been three years since juniors raced at Mount Marathon. The 2019 race was canceled due to smoky conditions and the 2020 race was canceled because of the pandemic. “It’s going to be real exciting,’’ he said. Papillon and his family live in Boulder, Colo. Each summer, they visit Alaska, their former home – Linda and her husband, Dorian Gross, both Brooklyn natives, homesteaded in Talkeetna. Mount Marathon is a family love. Linda has raced it twice, and Dorian and Ali’s older brother, Bodhi, are race regulars who are entered again.

Ali has gone on to race extensively – he and Bodhi have both completed “The Gamut,’’ all the races in the Alaska Mountain Runners Grand Prix series in one season. He conquered the Matanuska Peak Challenge, a 14-mile ordeal with 10,000 vertical feet of climbing, at just 10 after getting an exemption from race organizers, and he finished seventh overall at Mat Peak last year. In August, he intends to race the daunting Pike’s Peak Marathon in Colorado. Papillon is making a name for himself, which is fitting because his parents gave him a separate, unique last name. Linda Rao said she and her husband thought the given name they liked, Ali , didn’t fit well with either Gross or Rao as last name. But Ali flowed beautifully into Papillon, the French word for butterfly, and the names also lent their son a unique identity. (Folks with boxing/culture knowledge can make the connection between Ali and butterfly).

Papillon said he was hooked on Mount Marathon after he first raced it at 9 in 2014.

Papillon’s first love remains Mount Marathon, where he has been a crowd favorite in part because of his small stature and ability to seemingly float up the mountain’s steep slope and spin his legs amazingly fast down it. He is growing, though – he checks in at 5-foot7 now. And he’s hoping his 50-mile training weeks can propel him to victory, and, best-case scenario, a shot at Bill Spencer’s jaw-dropping junior record (24:30 in 1973).

“It was really fun, but it was really technical,’’ he said. “After I finished the race, I wanted to do the mountain again. I wanted to climb it and I loved

“I feel like I have a good chance of winning,’’ Papillon said, “and I have the overall junior record in sight.’’

2021 MOUNT MARATHON RACE GUIDE


Rule Changes for 2021 Remember the days when you could just show up in Seward on July 4 and enter the Mount Marathon Race? They’re long gone, of course. By 1997, demand had increased so greatly that the men’s capacity of 300 filled in 48 hours and in 2003 a lottery application system was established for new racers. The Mount Marathon Race Committee has tweaked the entry rules many times since, and this year some significant changes will be implemented -- they were announced in February 2020 but not enacted due to last year’s cancellation. The primary new measure is called Top 50 Percent Age Group Rule and replaces the First 225 Finishers Rule. It impacts those who haven’t secured priority registration status through the 10-year Status or other means. To retain one’s spot for 2022, racers must now finish in the top half of their age group. Why the change? The rule is designed increase lottery odds and give more first-time racers an opportunity to participate. With demand for bibs rising dramatically (and supply remaining low) some lottery entrants have applied year after year after year, only to remain emptyhanded. That’s because previous rules allowed most of those lucky enough to have a bib to requalify year after year — and left few spots for newcomers to get their chance. While the rule will please lottery entrants, it won’t be popular with racers who fail to requalify under the stricter standards: they’ll need to enter the lottery the following year in hopes of regaining a bib. Another change is called the 10-Year New Racer Repeal Rule. Beginning in 2021, firsttime racers will no longer be eligible to earn priority 10-Year Status. The intent of this rule is to gradually improve lottery odds -- we won’t see the effects until 2030, when the first rookies from this year would have otherwise obtained 10-year Status. Also, anyone who has completed an adult race by 2019 (or deferred that year) is “grandfathered in” and can work towards eventually obtaining 10-Year Status. Two other rules were approved: •

The number of entrants in the women’s and men’s races will increase from 350 to 375 (The junior race will remain capped at 150 boys and 150 girls). Note that fewer than 1,050 racers will actually participate due to no-shows, deferrals and other factors.

The men’s and women’s races will increase from two to three waves of equal size starting five minutes apart. This rule is designed to reduce congestion and improve safety. It will actually take effect in 2022 because, due to the pandemic, the 2021 event will feature additional waves and wave sizes of no more than 50.

Finally, the Downhill Demon Award will debut in 2021. It will go to the fastest male and female descender from Race Point to the finish line. The current men’s record is 10 minutes flat by Eric Strabel (Taylor Turney ran 10:01 in 2019). The women’s record belongs to Denali Foldager Strabel at 11:27. The new rules descriptions, along with a list of Frequently Asked Questions, can be viewed at mountmarathon.com/news/rule-changes-for-2020.

Maria Davydenko By Doyle Woody Maria Davydenko knows it sounds cheesy, and just saying it out loud makes her laugh – her dream, literally, did come true.

Beyond the fitness and stress release that running furnishes, Davydenko savors it because is also stimulates some of her best thinking. And she finds each run is its own journey.

Davydenko, 32, of Eagle River, is a foreign service officer for the U.S. State Department. Her career takes her all over the globe – she has been stationed in India and Nigeria, and her next posting later this summer will be in Turkey. Visits home are rare.

“The person you are when you’re done is not the person you were when you left,’’ Davydenko said.

But the pandemic brought her back to Eagle River, where she has spent the past year studying Arabic remotely for her job. Being home for the first time in five years got her thinking about the Mount Marathon race she grew up watching on family visits to Seward. An experienced ultramarathoner, Davydenko figured she had nothing to lose by petitioning the Mount Marathon Race Committee for an entry exemption into the race.

Running can also be goal-oriented, and Davydenko, who was born in Russia and immigrated to the U.S. with her family when she was 5, is something of an achiever. She has an undergraduate economics degree from Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and a graduate degree in public policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. Arabic is her sixth language, following Russian, English, Spanish, Mandarin and Hindi. She has run marathons in India, Nigeria and Ghana, and knocked off 100-kilometer (62-mile) trail races in Virginia and Oregon. She has also climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, which at 19,341 feet is the highest peak in Africa and one of the Seven Summits.

“It was kind of a total shot in the dark,’’ Davydenko said. Then, she dreamed she got her wish. She laughed that off – until an email arrived a few days later informing her the committee approved her petition. “It was a real surprise,’’ Davydenko said. “I wasn’t expecting anything.’’ Davydenko, who graduated from Polaris K-12 School and played basketball and volleyball at Dimond, developed a love for running as a freshman rower at the University of Pennsylvania. She realized during cross-training runs for crew that she most enjoyed the endurance aspect of the sport – as she wrote to the race committee, “my heart was in my feet.’’

Davydenko has used running to explore and connect with communities where she has been stationed for work.

Davydenko is excited to race Mount Marathon, and a touch nervous. The punishing ascent and harrowing descent own her respect. In May, she trained on Mount Baldy in Eagle River and Bird Ridge along Turnagain Arm. She planned to scout Mount Marathon and train on it prior to the race. And, come July 7, Davydenko gets to realize her dream with her proud parents watching in Seward. “At the end of the day, I think I’m looking forward to being out there with the other crazy people,’’ she said.

Lori & Cliff Draper By Doyle Woody Fittingly, the kitchen window in Lori and Cliff Draper’s home frames Seward’s iconic Mount Marathon. The 3,022-foot peak overlooking Resurrection Bay is a constant in the Drapers’ lives, just as they for decades have been constants in the annual Mount Marathon Race. Since 1978, a year after they moved to Alaska from Michigan, the Drapers have served among the legions of volunteers who make a complicated race run smoothly. Volunteers bind this race that draws a thousand runners and thousands of spectators and transforms the small seaside community into a wonderful spectacle each Fourth of July. Lori, 64 and a former bank manager, long served as race director and as a member of the race committee. For years, she has overseen the finish area, where she brings calm and order to the chaos of exhausted finishers stumbling about. One minute Lori is deftly moving finishers aside to create room from those still to come, the next minute she’s guiding an injured runner to the medical tent, and the next she’s helping a rubber-legged racer remain upright. Cliff, 70, a retired teacher and coach, has long been the starter for the men’s, women’s and junior races. He’s also been involved with timing and helping Lori in the finish area. After more than 40 years of serving the race, the Drapers are stepping aside to let new blood help run the show. Still, they savor an event that has become an enormous part of their town’s identity. “I would never want to be anywhere else on the Fourth of July,’’ Lori said. “I love the tradition, the sense of community. I really wanted to make the race special.’’

Cliff said he and his wife volunteered year after year because Mount Marathon is such a unique event and so important to Seward. “I think it was just the sheer enjoyment and excitement, because we knew a lot of the runners and had great respect for them,’’ Cliff said. The Drapers visited Cliff ’s brother in Seward in 1977, worked for Alaska Fisheries that summer and stayed in town when Cliff landed a teaching job. They raised three children in Seward and saw Mount Marathon explode from a relatively small, albeit cool, race into a holiday celebration that lured national-class and world-class racers and earned live television coverage. Lori laughs that when she and Cliff first volunteered as timers, “We used to do it with a stopwatch and a legal pad.’’ And she jokes that Cliff ’s qualification to become race starter was on point. “He’s a track coach, so he had a starter’s pistol,’’ she said. While the Drapers are best known for their tireless volunteer efforts at Mount Marathon, they also own racing resumes there. They both ran the race in 1990, and Lori did it again in 1996. One way of looking at the Drapers’ Mount Marathon history is they have only three finisher’s patches between them. But another way is that Cliff has started more Mount Marathon races than anyone and Lori has managed her share of finishes.
