Craig High School
Prince of Wales Island is the third largest United States island and as such offers much Alaskan natural beauty along the miles of the out-and-back course. Participants start at the base of Sunnahae Mountain in Craig and immediately venture down the Klawock Inlet along the Inside Passage. While passing through Klawock, glances of the clan house and mink-raven totem pole will point the way to the more mountainous Big Salt Highway, where mountain peaks, valleys and muskeg areas await all marathoners. Although this is the more challenging portion of the course, it is also the most inspirational. Wildlife sightings are not uncommon on race day and add to the uniqueness of the experience.
Our out-and-back course starts at the backdrop of the Sunnahae Mountain at Craig High School and heads north along the Klawock Channel, through the village of Klawock, turning left at the Native clan house, and proceeding along Boundary Road, which turns into Big Salt Lake Highgway, and affords views of some of our most majestic lakes, clear streams, and muskeg areas. The middle, more mountainous portion of the full marathon course presents challenges, but equally inspires participants with Southeast Alaska's natural beauty. The out-and-back half marathon course follows the full marathon course but does not venture into the more mountainous portion. Wildlife sightings are not uncommon on race day.
