Crow Pass Crossing rescheduled for Aug. 7

Crow Pass Crossing, trail race

The Crow Pass Crossing has been rescheduled for Sunday, Aug. 7, race organizers said Tuesday. The nearly 23-mile trail race was initially set to be run on July 23, but unsafe conditions at a river crossing forced the race directors to postpone it.

The race, in its 37th year, runs from Girdwood to the Eagle River Nature Center. It’s a major test for Alaska endurance athletes and also draws a significant number of runners from the Outside.
