Message from the RunFest Race Directors

June 27, 2021

The 2021 Anchorage RunFest is scheduled for August 21 & 22. On behalf of the Race Committee, we promise to produce a professional, organized event. It’s what our participants have come to know and enjoy. We vow to continue our hard-earned reputation by, once again, offering a fantastic Last Frontier experience for everyone – participants, volunteers, and sponsors. Anchorage’s awesome surroundings -- mountains, waterways, and wildlife -- fuels our desire to share and continues to inspire our efforts.

We have worked through challenges COVID-19 presented and are thrilled to return to an in-person event. Anchorage RunFest races will follow health guidelines set by state and local authorities to safeguard the health of participants

The turnout for this year's event is looking very strong and promises to be a fun filled weekend with competitive races, good companionship, and some great looking shirts and medals. Add to all this our cool weather at perfect race temperatures we look forward to a brilliant, competitive, fun, and safe RunFest 2021!
