They have 10 rooms blocked off for the dates of September 14 to 17, for just $75/night.
Call 907-328-3500 to make a reservation – and tell them you are here for the Equinox Marathon to get the special rate.
If you’re planing to enter the Equinox Marathon or Relay, register today! Fees go up on Wednesday, August 1.
Registration is now open for the 2018 Equinox Marathon and Relay, for both the marathoner and hiker classes! Yes, in 2018 we’ll have a Hiker class to recognize the long tradition of hiking the marathon route since our very first days.
This year, Early Bird registration goes to midnight on July 31, Standard to September 12. Late registration is September 13 and 14 at bib pickup, and Race Day registration is, well, on race day, September 15. The longer you wait, the more expensive it is!
Get all the registration details on the Entering page and get signed up today. Then get out there and train!
The Equinox Marathon and all its related events relies heavily on the support of the community in lots of ways. One of the ways that has a big impact is through corporate sponsorship. Learn about the options on the Sponsorship page and the Equinox Sponsorship Letter for 2018.
Thanks for your support!

The Equinox Marathon shirts are finally in for those that did not receive one yet!
For all locals, you can pick them up at Goldstream Sports. Their store hours are Monday – Friday 12:00pm – 7:00pm AND Saturday 10:00am – 5:00pm.
Anyone who lives out of town and marked their names on a sign-up sheet, your shirts will be mailed out. Please be patient as I prepare them for mailing.
There are a few bags left. They will be on a first come, first serve basis.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Equinox Marathon Race Director
A few people have started posting collections of photos of the race a couple of weeks ago. Here are the ones we know about so far. If you have posted photos online and wouldn’t mind our including the link here, please email the Web master and we’ll update this post. Thanks!
Runners, Joggers, Hikers, and Walkers:
The shirts are on order and should arrive mid-October. Once they arrive, we will send out a mass email.
For those that did not receive their age-group, overall, or relay awards at the banquet, you can pick them up at Goldstream Sports during their regular store hours. If you live out of town, they have been shipped out to you.
Pictures are coming soon. Our photographer is putting them together. Again, I will send an email out once they are ready. In the meantime, here is a link to some photos that someone took the time to put together. Thank you Nurit Katz!
We’re pleased to announce that you can now buy an Equinox course trail sign online. This is a great way to support the Equinox Marathon. Check out the details on the Course Marker page.
All of the results for the 2017 Equinox Marathon and Relay are now posted on the Results page. Huge thanks to John Estle for his tireless work in getting them organized and posted, along with some of the other documents that break down the races in various ways.
