Alaska Run for Women: Race day June 9, 2018

Online registration opened today.

Runners? Walkers? Run/walkers? You bet! The race has a pace for every level and every age! Grab some friends, create a team and go PINK! Race day: June 9, 2018 – be there!
Please join us as we celebrate 26 years!

The Alaska Run for Women unites thousands of women from all over Alaska in one of the largest all-women runs in the country. The ultimate goal? End breast cancer! In 2017 we raised more than $240,000 for breast cancer research, education, outreach, prevention and early detection. Help us surpass that in 2018. Invite your friends, family and co-workers to register for the run/walk. We have plenty of special activities planned on race day – Zumba, Bouncy House, food and beverages, obstacle course, face painting! Can’t make it this year? You can also contribute with an online donation. Each step, each dollar raised will make a giant difference.

Join the fight against breast cancer through this fun, powerful, unforgettable event. Let’s do this!
