Engraving for Finisher Medals
If you would like to order a small metal plate, an iTab, engraved with your name and finish time, to attach to the back of your Finisher’s Medal, you may do so online when you register. The Anchorage RunFest does not fabricate the iTab, we send race results to the manufacturer who mails them directly to participants.
To see what this looks like, or to order one after your event, visit iTAB’s RunFest page.
Refund and transfer Policies
All entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable—no exceptions. You may not give, sell, or exchange your entry or bib to another person. Entry fees may not be rolled over to another year. This policy applies to all entrants and is in effect no matter what the reason for being unable to participate.
Anchorage RunFest is planning to hold an in-person event, likely with some COVID-19 mitigation protocols in place. Any modifications will depend on the municipal, state, and federal guidelines in place at the time of the event. While we hope this won’t be necessary, if it needed we anticipate possible modifications that may include: a limited field, scaled-back course support, wave starts, and restrictions at the start and finish. In the unlikely event that we are required to cancel the in-person event, we will hold a virtual race. All participants will be converted to a virtual event and we will not defer racers to 2023.
The goal for our 2022 Anchorage RunFest is to have a fun and safe event. The health and safety of our participants and community is our top priority.

PLEASE NOTE: As a safety precaution for our runners, ABSOLUTELY NO STROLLERS, SKATEBOARDS, ROLLER BLADES, OR PETS are allowed on the racecourse. If you are on any part of the course with any of these, you will be automatically disqualified. The goal for our 2023 Anchorage RunFest is to have a fun and safe event. The health and safety of our participants and community is our top priority.
