Totem to Totem Half Marathon



Totem to Totem 1/2 Marathon

May 11, 2019

Register HERE for the race!

The long, mountainous and forested shoreline of the Tongass Narrows waterway is the setting for the annual springtime running of Ketchikan’s Totem to Totem Half Marathon, a 13.1-mile race that takes runners along a point-to-point course that starts at Rotary Beach Park, just southeast of the Saxman community.

From there, the race takes runners north along Tongass Avenue for the next 13.1 miles, all the way to the finish line in Totem Bight State Historical Park, just northeast of the city.

All along the way, runners can expect to catch ample glimpses of one of the local features for which the area is well-known — totem poles, which they’ll see most prominently around the starting area at Totem Bight State Park and around Saxman Village as they near the finish line.

The race takes runners along beautiful vistas with tree-covered mountains along the Tongass Highway, where runners can expect to see local wildlife as well as fishing villages and boats streaming along the water in the narrows all along the race route.

The event is open to both runners and walkers and usually features a smaller field of participants, as the race usually sees between 100 and 200 runners and walkers cross the finish line.



 One great aspect to this event is the ability to enable a philanthropic outreach in support of several local and national charitable beneficiaries. Team members agree to raise a minimum of $300 for DSF. You train for the race and raise money for Dravet Syndrome Foundation. We provide the resources you need to cross the finish line. You’ll raise awareness and critical funding that will help change the lives of those with Dravet syndrome, while making an impact on your life and health as well
