Each year, the Alaska Run for Women sells a variety
of commemorative merchandise featuring a unique artistic design.
There are two options for shopping:
1. A variety of merchandise
is sold IN PERSON annually at registration and bib
pick-up events prior to the run and on race day.
2. An ONLINE ONLY
Specialty Store is always open at
Cafe Press! The unique logo
items offered at CafePress are completely separate and different from
the merchandise sold in person by the Alaska Run for Women.
Why don't I get a t-shirt with
The RFW is a donation based event and no registration fee is charged.
Are merchandise proceeds
donated to the cause of fighting breast cancer?
Yes! Net proceeds are added to the Alaska Run for
Women grant program benefiting breast cancer awareness, education,
support and early detection programs. Local merchandise sales are
handled by RFW board members and a volunteer sales crew.
Why are some items or
sizes sold out on the morning of the race?
The goal is to sell all the merchandise and get the
most financial benefit for the RFW grants program. There are four big
selling days prior to the run (1 in Wasilla; 3 in Anchorage), and
participants are encouraged to come early on these days and not wait
until race day to make a purchase. Typically, merchandise is limited by
race day. If we waited until the day of the run to sell all merchandise,
the lines would be impossibly long and there is a risk of having a huge
amount of unsold merchandise.
Why are you always out
of MY size?
Merchandise orders are based on prior years sales, and are, at best, a
guessing game! Often a certain color or style is more popular than
others, and sells out faster.
What if I can't get to
Anchorage before race day?
If you live outside the Anchorage and Valley area,
you may prepay for merchandise to be picked up on the morning of the
run. This is offered only to those with an out-of-town address. Contact Kathy Wisthoff
