Alaska Runners Calendar

The Alaska Runners Calendar is a collective effort between Parks & Recreation and  various cities throughout Alaska to put together a publication informing sports enthusiasts from all walks of life and all ages and abilities (or those just wanting to get out for some exercise), the multitude of running/walking events that are held throughout the year.

If you are a new race organizer and you wish to be notified of updated information on an existing race, or you have questions, concerns or suggestions about the calendar in general, or are interested in advertising in the calendar, please contact staff at  

No hard copy calendars are printed for 2020 due to increasing costs and decreasing advertising revenue.

Organizing the Calendar

Event listings are due December 5th and ads are due December 15, along with payment. Earlier is better as the goal is to get the runners calendar out as soon as possible and that can only happen if deadlines are met.

Not a runner, then consider volunteering since the majority of races are run by volunteers. One can never have too many volunteers and I'm sure all race organizers would appreciate the additional help.

Check periodically throughout the year for race changes.

Race Listings and Advertising

Entries submitted by Google Forms are $7 per listing or $50/multiple (max 12 per $50). Entries submitted by paper form are $10 per listing, there is no group rate for paper forms.
