Alaska Salmon Runs
The Alaska Salmon Runs are dedicated to the five species of salmon native to our area. Cordova is surrounded by extraordinary ecosystems that combine to form one of the world’s most spectacular natural environments and a thriving wild salmon migration.
We hope to “see you on the road” to experience the breathtaking scenery of our local running course.

WHY WE DO IT
