The Alaska Run for Women will again stay apart so we can play a part in the fight against breast cancer, moving forward with a second annual virtual race for 2021!
We are committed to supporting our mission of breast cancer awareness, education, research and prevention. While we may be virtual this year, there is nothing virtual about breast cancer. Thanks to our runners and walkers, and our donors, we will continue our grant awards program in 2021.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, and to show our support we are celebrating in a variety of fun ways for 8 days from June 12-19!
A 5-mile or 1-mile race that you can run or walk from any location you choose at any time during the event week of June 12-19, 2021. Your choice, your time, your race. Run in Alaska and invite family and friends from across the U.S. to register and join you!
On a trail, a treadmill, a track or wherever you choose. Follow local and state mandates and guidelines in place at the time of the event and follow all AKRFW safety rules.
The run/walk is untimed, and all levels of walkers, runners and joggers are welcome.
This is your event. Set your own goal and go out and accomplish it. Complete the distance in one segment or break it up into multiple segments.
Your registration comes with a downloadable bib and back tags that you can wear on the day you participate.
Visit the Teams page to create your team now! Once a team is created, teammates can join the team when registration opens on April 15, 2021. Each teammate registers individually and joins the team when registering.
While we cannot experience all of the fun of race day together in one place we are bringing much of the event to participants and the community virtually. Look for the schedule of virtual events and challenges throughout the weeks leading up to and during race week. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram, and check your email for regular newsletter updates.
