Duff's Skagway Marathon, Half Marathon and Walking Half Marathon is an amazing race that takes place in the wilderness of Alaska. 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 trestle 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.
Yeah… Whoa is right.
until the races commence!

This 26.2 mile out and back course is beautiful as it is brutal. If you are looking for a road meets trail adventure that takes you from ocean to forest, this race is for you.
Our most popular race and for a reason. Runners follow the first portion of the full marathon course through historical Skagway and run along ocean and forest. Turning around at aid station 4 and returning to the start will round out this 13.1 mile route.
Walking Half marathon
Running ain’t your thing? That’s okay, we have a race for you! This 13.1 walking race traces the runners route and is a fantastic way to see all the beauty Skagway has to offer.
