KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Totem to Totem Half Marathon is on pace to be run a second time this year.
But this time, it’s for real.
The Ketchikan Running and Walking Club is set to host the half marathon on Saturday, Sept. 12, “unless something drastically changes with city mandates,” according to the club.
The Totem to Totem Half Marathon originally was planned for May 9, but the club opted to move the date because of the novel coronavirus.
In its place, the club hosted its first virtual meet, which was run this spring. It was the first of several virtual races the Ketchikan Running and Walking Club has hosted this summer.
The race on Sept. 12 has a limited amount of registration spots left, in order to abide by social distancing guidelines..
Registration is only allowed at www.active.com.
Participants can search for the Ketchikan Running Club on the website.
There is a requirement to bring an appropriate face mask on race day, and to stay at least 10 feet apart.
Race bibs and T-shirts will be available, but participants should bring their own sports drinks. Water will be available in three designated areas.
The Totem to Totem Half Marathon is a 13.1-mile trek that spans from Rotary Beach to Potlatch Totem Park.
Unlike previous years, there will not be a pre-race pasta meal the night before race day.
