Duff’s Skagway Marathon
June 10 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm$40
Difficult but endlessly rewarding, the Skagway Marathon, Half Marathon, and Walking Half Marathon has
quite the reputation. The course climbs multiple hills as it traces its way through pristine Southeast Alaskan
fjord coastline, through a glacially-carved valley, an enchanting Sitka Spruce forest, over the Taiya River
trestle bridge, past numerous trickling streams, up West Creek Valley, and breathtaking mountain peaks and
alpine scenery. Yeah… Whoa is right. The Skagway Full and Half Marathon is a 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 its mostly rugged roads throughout the race.
