Runners from all over the world start a half-marathon race Wednesday in the False Outer Point parking lot. The runners traveled to Juneau on the cruise ship Westerdam. The race was part of the Great Alaska Maritime Marathon, a race broken into four distances: A two-mile run on the ship, a half-marathon in Juneau, a five-mile run in Sitka and a 10-km. run in Ketchikan. It is the second time runners have participated in the event, organized by John Bingham, a columnist for Runner's World magazine. Local runners also participated in the half-marathon.
