Days to Race248
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!
Last year’s virtual event was a tremendous success with participation from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. In 2021, the event will again span 8 days allowing participants to choose a day and a way that works best for them – walk, run, hop on a treadmill or go for a hike.
Stay tuned for more detailed information on the event, registration, daily promotions, fun challenges, etc.
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 virtual race means running or walking from any location you choose at any time during the event dates from June 12-19. Run or walk on the trail, the treadmill, on a track or wherever you choose (following local and state mandates and distancing guidelines). Your choice, your time, your race. Run in Alaska or have friends and family from anywhere across the US register and join the fun.
Where can I run/walk?
Wherever you choose, but you must follow local and state mandates and distancing guidelines in place at the time of your event and follow all rules of the roads, trails or venues you run/walk in.
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.
Official 2021 Alaska Run for Women merchandise is available by online ordering soon. There will be in-person pick-up in Anchorage and for those who chose not to pick up, orders will be shipped. Every item purchased helps support the fight against breast cancer.
Stay tuned for the return of Where in the World is PeaRL, our Pink Running Lady mascot!
