Due to COVID-19 concerns we will be running a virtual race series in 2020. We are continually working hard to promote healthy recreation. We encourage all racers to remain 6ft apart when not running, and 10ft apart when doing so. Facemasks are encouraged when not running on the course as well. Please help us help you, by keeping everyone safe!
Watch here for updates.
year, the Bonny Sosa Tuesday Night Races will take place virtually over the
span of 3 days (Tue-Thur). Each Tuesday prior to the next race,
registration will open up for BSTNR! The course will be set up on race day Tuesday by 6pm,
and taken down Friday morning. This gives our fantastic racers three days to
complete their desired course! Once registered, you will receive a link to the
course map, our weekly race curated music playlist, and a link to a Google
Document where you can submit your race times. Don’t be fooled, just because it
is a virtual race, does not mean the awards are! Awards will be given out, and
BSTNR Swag will be hidden along the courses each week. Like us on Facebook
(Anchorage Parks & Recreation), Instagram (@anchorageparksandrec) and
follow us on Twitter (@ANCParksandRec) for more updates and the weekly
awards. So, come on down, bring your family and friends (sorry dogs
prohibited) and be prepared for some hills, spills, thrills, and chills.
For many Anchorage families, the Bonny Sosa Tuesday Night Race Series is a fall family tradition. These fun runs are like no other in Anchorage. Come rain, snow, sleet, hail or wind, weather permitting these races are rarely cancelled. Whether you are a competitive runner or just want to get out and see a new trail or meet new friends, this is the event for you. Three separate race courses are set each week at a different location around town. Local runners often volunteer as guest course setters and some have gained a reputation of setting unique routes. While the Munchkin and Farm Leagues usually stay on heavily used trails, the Lightning League is a different story. Lightning courses have been known to follow narrow game trails, cross streams, and slog through swamps. The race course will be revealed to no one until just prior to the start.
In 2008, after the death of Bonny Sosa, long time fitness advocate and founder/director of Healthy Futures, the race series was dedicated to her and her name became part of the Tuesday Night Races. With her 'can do' attitude, positive energy and passion for life, Bonny was a front runner and activist in the community, and a friend to all that had the privilege to know her.
