Please join us for the 3rd annual Sitka Cross Trail Classic Marathon & Half on Saturday, August 8, 2015 in beautiful Sitka, Alaska. The Cross Trail Classic is a combination road and trail run. Both the Full and Half Marathon will start at 7:00am at the Sitka Rocky Gutierrez Airport. The race will continue over the bridge, through Sitka National Historical Park, down Indian River Road, onto the Cross Trail, continuing on the entire Cross Trail, onto Kramer Avenue where both the full and half marathoners will turn around and head into town along Halibut Point Road. The half marathoners will finish their race downtown near the basketball and tennis courts on Lincoln Street while the full marathoners continue on to run another loop and will also finish downtown near the basketball and tennis courts. Participants will be emailed a map and full course description before the race. For those who ran last year, the course route will be the same.
