Message from the RunFest Race Directors


The Anchorage RunFest is scheduled for August 19 & 20, 2023. 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.


Our experience in 2022 was extremely positive, with happy participants and a relatively smooth event. Given the challenges we had to overcome with supply chain issues, volunteer shortages, and a depressed local economy we were proud to have put on such a high-quality event. The 2023 Anchorage RunFest promises to be a brilliant, competitive, and fun filled event.


We will keep you informed as we proceed to race day. 


The goal for our 2023 RunFest is to have a fun and safe event. The health and safety of our participants and community is our top priority. We do not currently anticipate impacts from COVID19 but will put COVID-19 mitigation protocols in place should they be necessary. Any modifications will depend on the municipal, state, and federal guidelines in place at the time of the event.
