The Alaska Marathon Cruise takes place in May and combines a 7 day cruise round-trip from Seattle, WA with the Skagway Grin and Bear It Marathon and Half-Marathon in Skagway, Alaska.

At present time, the only way to gain entry into the Grin and Bear It Marathon is via our cruise package.  Pricing and itinerary will vary every year as we base our cruise choice on the various cruise lines’ itineraries.  Our intent is to have the marathon run in Skagway be our first port of call so we can live it up for the rest of the cruise!

Our Inaugural Alaska Marathon Cruise in 2010 was a rousing success!  The Skagway Grin and Bear It Marathon and Half-Marathon didn’t disappoint, as a bear tried to join the runners, but was quickly shooed away by our brave course monitors.

The fun doesn’t end after the Skagway port.  In Juneau our group excursion might include a bike ride from the Mendenhall Glacier to the Alaskan Brewery (one of our sponsors).  Ketchikan could see us flying through the treetops on a zip-lining and canopy ropes course.

During our days at sea we’ll have several surprises ranging from a daily stretching class to robot races.  We’ll also have special amenities just for our group courtesy of the cruise line.
