Course Description

Known far and wide as one of the hardest and most rewarding marathons in North America, the Skagway Marathon has quite the reputation.

This 26-mile run climbs multiple hills as it traces its way through pristine Southeast Alaskan fjord coastline, through a glacially-carved valley, an enchanting Sitka Spruce wood, over the Taiya River tressle bridge, past numerous trickling streams, up West Creek Valley, before finally reaching a forest opening with a spectacular view of West Creek Glacier and breathtaking mountain peaks and alpine scenery.

The Skagway Full Marathon is difficult course that covers a variety of terrain, elevation gains and drop, and takes you from small historical town setting to tranquil wilderness. Although considered a road marathon this out and back race crosses over into trail territory with most of the rugged roads midway into the race. This course is very hilly so keep this in mind for your training.
