Caption Marineer Pageant Walkathon
Description The Walkathon was a part of the Marineers' Pageant, although it is uncertain if it was held every year. The 8-3-1939 ANACORTES AMERICAN reported, "Local hiker wins in walk." Pageant winners in that 13-mile walkathon were James A. McLachlan in the men's division and Dorothy McGill in the women's division. This photo shows eight contestants lined up. The view appears to be near mills, possibly on R Avenue. See promotional pictures of Marineer royalty getting in shape for the event, WF 1574. Also see WF 5908, 5909.
