Run for the Refuge

22nd edition

Celebrate the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge with our 22nd Annual Run for the Refuge trail race,  a 10k run and a 5k walk/run.  This year’s race will take place on Sunday, July 15th at 1pm. Race begins at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Ski Hut. Support the conservation of Alaska’s refuge by participating in this fun, family-friendly event!

The 5K is stroller friendly, and is an enjoyable walk for those who are not competitive runners. Entry fee for either race includes post-race snacks, t-shirt for those who register in advance, and prizes for top finishers in each class (men, women, and children under 12). There will be door prizes and spectators are always welcome!
