Anchorage runner Aaron Fletcher has taken unbeatable to a whole new level.

The 25-year-old broke course records and won all four races he participated in this summer, capping his 2017 season at the St. George Marathon in Utah, where he posted the second-fastest 26.2-mile time by an Alaskan.

Fletcher, of South High fame, clocked a time of 2 hours, 14 minutes, 45 seconds in the St. George Marathon to best a field of 2,504 men’s finishers.

The only other Alaskan to run a faster marathon time was Chugiak’s David Morris, who went 2:09:32 at the 1999 Chicago Marathon.

It seemed to be the only record Fletcher didn’t break this summer.

In addition to the St. George Marathon, he shattered course records at the Timp Trail Marathon, the Elephant Rock Trail Run and the Top of Utah Half Marathon.
