Anchorage RunFest

August 19 - August 20

Anchorage RunFest is a collection of running events that celebrate runners of all abilities from the elite runners to the back of the packers. This late season Boston Marathon qualifier boasts ideal running weather, mild temperatures and a fast course with very little elevation gain. The out and back route takes runners through downtown Anchorage before heading out along the scenic coastline and through the city’s wooded greenbelt. In keeping with the event’s ‘wild’ reputation, Anchorage’s thriving urban wildlife is often spotted along the race-course.

The popular two-day event, has grown from a small community race to a true destination event with runners and walkers coming from all over the globe.

A 2-day health and fitness expo and bib pickup will be held at the Dena’ina Convention Center.

Anchorage RunFest is the largest event and main fundraiser for the Anchorage Running Club, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. Funds raised through this event are used in part to provide college scholarships to deserving high school runners, to high school sports teams and to other athletic events in the community that support its mission to promote a healthy lifestyle through running and exercise.

Anchorage RunFest is put on by a dedicated all-volunteer race committee.

Registration and more information can be found at the website link above.
