Alaska Distance Classic Race

August 7, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


DOUBLE DOWN on the FUN in 2021! Run a 5K, 10K or BOTH at the Alaska Distance Classic! Double-Up finishers earn a special reward. Sticking with the 5K or 10K? No worries, we have special rewards for you too. Root beer floats, anyone?

The Alaska Distance Classic starts at Alaska Pacific University and winds through the beautiful woods that surround the University of Alaska and APU campuses. You have 45 minutes to finish the 5K before toe’ing up to the 10K start line. You can do it!

In tradition with previous years, this event includes awareness and a fundraiser for Special Olympics Alaska. In 2020, this event raised $2,500 despite other challenges. Thank YOU for helping us support this incredible community organization. We look forward to partnering again and highlighting the world-class athletes from SOA, especially in an Olympic year!
