Alaska Runners Club is a member-based organization centered around running, and our efforts and activites serve all runners and active individuals, from beginners to professional athletes: the young, the elderly, and the underserved of all abilities.

It is our unique nonprofit model, which teams contributions from corporate, foundation, and individual donors with earned income from our best-in-class events, that makes all our efforts possible.

Together with the help of all Alaska Runners Club members, supporters, participants, and partners, we’re working hard to fulfill our mission of giving all people everywhere a reason to run. Today, tomorrow, and for life.

Running clubs in Alaska welcome runners of all ages and abilities. Each of the local clubs has its own unique history, purpose, membership profile, and goals. Please contact individual clubs about memberships. Alaska Runners Club is proud to serve as an umbrella organization for local clubs, providing weekly races, an annual team-points series in two open and three masters categories for both men and women, and monthly Club Council meetings. Although AKRC membership is not required to join a local running club, many clubs encourage it.
