As the saying goes, there’s unity in community. For the Alaska Run for Women, that means in 2021 we stay apart so we can play a part in the fight against breast cancer.
We made the decision to be virtual again with the health and safety in mind of all participants, while still supporting our mission of breast cancer awareness, education, research and prevention.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Showing our unity in community, for 2021, we are celebrating in a variety of fun ways for 8 days! 
1-in-8 your way! On a trail, on a treadmill, or your favorite way on your favorite day! Join the week-long celebration on the day of your choice – or several – in the way that works best for you, individually, as a team or by inviting friends from across the country!  

Sign up and bring your friends and family from around the country along with you. Grab your sisters, mothers, daughters, co-workers, neighbors…you get the idea! This event is for every female near and far. Please register your kids – girls of all ages are welcome – they will love wearing their own race bibs!

Why Should I Register?

  • As always, in order to include all women regardless of economic circumstances, the Run for Women has no set registration fee. This event relies solely on donations, and every dollar makes a difference! The Run for Women has granted more than $5.2 million in the past 28 years and supported thousands of mammograms for uninsured or underinsured women throughout Alaska.
  • If you are able to donate, may we suggest a $25.00 donation (more is always welcome)? The greater your donation, the more we are able to fulfill the mission of grant making to organizations concerned with breast cancer awareness, research, education, outreach, and mammograms for underserved women.
  • To have a great time! The event week will be filled with fun challenges and ways for you to show your support in the fight against breast cancer.
  • Everybody who registers for the virtual event will be entered in a drawing to win one of these great prizes: A. One of two trips for 2 to Maui on Alaska Airlines with a 3-night stay at Ho’oilo House; B. A one-year Gold Family Membership to the The Alaska Club; or C. One of 100 white spruce or paper birch trees provided by International Paper Co.; Arbor Day Foundation; Municipality of Anchorage, Parks & Recreation; and DNR, Division of Forestry. They are 2-3 feet tall and ready to plant in Alaska.
