​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  

Organizing the Calendar

NEW FOR 2021! Starting in 2021 the Alaska Runners Calendar will me moving to a digital calendar format. This will allow for more real time updates and make it easier to find a race at a glance. Race submissions will be through an online google form​ and posted to the calendar. You can even add the calendar to your smart phone or tablet.

In 2021 the calendar will be changing to a donation based pricing. We'll post any race submission submitted regardless of payment. If you would like to make a small payment to support the calendar you can send a check to Alaska Runners Calendar, PO Box 196650, Anchorage, AK 99519. 

Event listings are due December 28th. 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. Since the new calendar format is more flexible we'll be able to take submissions throughout the year but it'll take a few weeks to get them posted on the calendar.

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. If you would like to volunteer for a race please contact the race directly.

Check periodically throughout the year for race changes.
