Mount Marathon Launches New Permanent Logo

The Mount Marathon Race now has a permanent logo created by Moose Pass native Sarah Glaser.

The core logo is red, white and blue and shows the letter M in the shape of two mountain summits. It includes an outline of the race trail and a tsunami wave as a nod to Seward’s maritime location. The logo package includes multiple iterations of the words Mount Marathon combined with the logo.

“With this logo, we wanted to create a modern, enduring symbol of the rugged, exciting nature of the race — while celebrating Mount Marathon’s amazing geography,” Glaser said.

The logo will be used for merchandise, signage, promotion, a new start banner, and a myriad of other purposes.

Glaser grew up in Moose Pass just outside of Seward and first participated in the Mount Marathon Race at age 14. She’s completed 10 adult races with a best of 11th place in 2014.

“I love that the event is an excellent motivation to climb mountains and celebrate running,” Glaser said.

Through her business, Sarah K. Glaser Illustration, she has created various logos, maps, book illustrations, murals and more. Other examples of her work can be viewed at

The Mount Marathon permanent logo will NOT replace the annual t-shirt design contest. That contest will continue each March/April and be used for each year’s racer and volunteer t-shirts and patches.
