The Bill Mitchell Fun Run has been a Colony Days Event for years and we are beyond excited to continue the tradition.
Bill Mitchell is a World War ll Veteran who served in the Pacific. He has been a continuous advocate and supporter of the Mat-Su Valley throughout the years especially when it came to running and events promoting a healthy lifestyle. So, lace up your shoes and come enjoy the day with your family and friends by getting outdoors.
The race will start at the Palmer Depot this year winding its way through town to E Dahila Ave, (cutting through the Borough parking lot to Elmwood) to S Chugach st, making a left onto Cope Industrial Way (bike path) and making a left turn onto the gravel path that connects with S Gulkana. From there runners will make their way to evergreen street, take a left onto Airport Rd, a left onto E Artic Ave, and a left onto S valley way and following the bike path back to the depot.
