An AKNG medevac unit and pararescuemen from the Air National Guard’s 212th Rescue Squadron rescued two hikers at Mount Marathon.
It was a sunny, blistering hot day at Seward July 4 where about 1000 runners participated in the 91st Mt. Marathon Race.
Most Alaskans are familiar with the annual run: every Independence Day sees hundreds of runners clambering up the face of Mt. Marathon in Seward.
