HELP AND INSPIRE PEOPLE THROUGH RUNNING
Running takes your body, mind, and spirit to a better place. The simple act of putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward can make you healthier, happier, and more confident.
Alaska Runners Club is a member-based organization centered around running. Our efforts and events 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.
OUR CORE VALUES
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.
Endurance for Kids is a committed group of adult runners from around Alaska who add meaning to their miles by raising funds for AKRC Youth and Community Services programs while training for major endurance events.
