This Event Took Place Sat. Aug 2, 2014


Please join us for the 4th annual Sitka Cross Trail Classic Half Marathon on Saturday, August 6, 2016 in beautiful Sitka, Alaska. The Cross Trail Classic is a combination road and trail run. The race will start at 8:00am 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 you will turn around and head into town along Halibut Point Road, finishing the race downtown near the basketball and tennis courts on Lincoln Street. Participants will be emailed a map and full course description before the race. Email questions to Julie White at

Time Limit, Age Limit, etc.

Race course support closes and timing stops at 11:30am. Please be sure that you will be able to complete the race in 3.5 hours.
Please be aware that there will be no refunds or transfers if you are unable to run the race for any reason. Sorry, no exceptions.

For 2016 - There is not an age limit. Youngsters willing to run the distance are welcome!

2016 Changes!

For 2016, and for the foreseeable future, the Cross Trail Classic will only be running as a HALF marathon 13.1 mile distance race. My goal is to bring the full marathon back when Sitka Trail Works expands the Sitka Cross Trail and runs it all the way out to Starrigavan.
The new start time will be 8:00am.


If you register before the end of the day Friday, 7/15, you will be guaranteed to receive your non cotton shirt on packet pickup night (Friday, August 5, 4-7pm at the fire hall). If you register after 7/15 you will still receive a shirt- it will just be after race day.
I look forward to receiving your registration!!


Each runner will receive a finisher's medal and a shirt. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals will be awarded for both men and women.

Cytomax Sports Drink

Cytomax (tropical fruit flavor) is the sports drink offered at aid stations. Water will be available as well.
