About The Anchorage Mile

NEW in 2022! This mile sprint just got more interesting. We are awarding top male and female finishers $50 cash.

This event gives sprinters a unique opportunity to compete in.

Note: Because the Military Mile and Anchorage Mile are separate events, you are not allowed to run the Anchorage Mile instead if you registered for the Military Mile.
