Entitled “Forget Me Not” the 2021 race design was created by 3-time Alaska Run for Women artist, Alexandra Steinke. Born in Anchorage and daughter of a long-time Run volunteer, Alex is happy to donate her time and talent to an event that keeps proceeds in the local community. When asked about her inspiration for this design she said:
For the women who have passed, don’t forget their perseverance and spirit.
For the marginalized communities, don’t forget that they might need an extra helping hand.
For the Alaskans who take care of their own community, you are not alone.
Mother, daughter, sister, friend.
