Participation over the years has been amazing, and everyone who turns out is making the whole event better and are in for a life-event! No matter the time you can do it in, you are now healthier for the very act of preparing and pushing yourself. Below are the records of past Skagway Marathon Events, and the 2017 Race Results will be posted here as soon as it is compiled and uploaded.
With 111 racers, 2016 has been our biggest turn out to date beating our 2014 record. Things were windy windy windy on race day causing volunteers to hustle about tying down tents, chairs, and table! Everyone was all smiles and good vibes this year.
Fun Facts: The 2016 mens and womens half marathon winners were both clocking in their 2nd win. Maura Sullivan of Whitehorse Yukon won the ladies half in 2013 (1:31:26) and in 2016 (1:36:12). Maura also holds the race record for the fastest ladies half marathon time (get it girl!). David Eikelboom of Whitehorse Yukon won the mens half marathon in 2014 (1:17:26) and in 2016 (1:14:15).
A little sun, a few clouds, a light breeze. All 92 racers would agree that 2015 was perfect running weather. This was the first year in the new start/finish location on the Broadway dock. Running down the dock past the ocean is the perfect finish to such a beautiful race.
Fun Facts: Our fastest recorded course time for the mens half marathon happened this year by Logan Roots of Whitehorse Yukon with a time of 1:13:18. One runner dressed up like a leprechaun!
This race start and end took place in the original location which was the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry Dock. All 108 racers faced wet muddy conditions. The day started rainy but ended with a little sun to help dry things out.
Fun Facts: Our fastest recorded course time for the mens full marathon happened this year by a seasonal summer employee, Daniel Howell. His time was 3:08:25 and oddly enough his bib number was #1. A group of runners were spotted mid race with wet road mud on their face as battle paint, Awesome!
