Tuesday Night Races

​​​The Bonnie Sosa Tuesday Night Race Series is BACK for​ 2021!

Watch this page for updates and information as race dates, courses, and ways to follow the fun as Anchorage kicks off another fun season of community health and fitness. 

For many Anchorage families, the Bonny Sosa Tuesday Night Race Series is a fall tradition, as these fun runs are like no other in Anchorage. Come rain, snow, sleet, hail or wind, these races are rarely cancelled. Drawing competitive runners and casual trail joggers alike, the wildly popular TNR Series is always an adventure. 

Each week (Tuesday), three separate race courses are set at a pre-determined location around town, with routes known only to certain parks and recreation staff and volunteer course-setting wizards, some of whom have earned reputations for mapping ​unique ways to run or walk up, down, and through Anchorage parks and trails. 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.


Bonny Sosa was a longtime fitness advocate and founder/director of Healthy Futures, an organization dedicated toward inspiring youth to stay active every day. After her death, Bonny's name became attached to the Tuesday Night Race brand in 2008, passing on her 'can do' attitude, positive energy, and passion for life. A frontrunner for healthy living in the Anchorage community, Bonny was a friend to all, and her namesake event is now one of the most popular races in Alaska, with thousands of Anchorage residents and visitors flocking to designated ​parks and trails each week to participate.
