Get ready for the most exciting running event of the year - the Alaska Distance Classic! Whether you're a seasoned runner or just starting out, this event has something for everyone. You can choose to take on the challenge of a 5K, a 10K, or even both! Yes, you heard it right, you can double up and conquer both distances. And guess what? If you complete the Double-Up, you'll receive a special reward as a badge of honor. But if you prefer to stick with either the 5K or the 10K, don't worry, we've got some awesome rewards for you too. Root beer floats, anyone? The Alaska Distance Classic kicks off at APU - a perfect location to begin your running adventure. Feeling up for a 10K? Go for it! But if you'd rather start with a 5K, that's totally fine too. And for those who want to push their limits, sign up for the Double-Up and challenge yourself to run both distances. Trust me, the sense of achievement will be glorious! The 5K race will begin 45 minutes before the 10K. So, if you're planning to double up, you'll have that extra time to finish the 5K and get ready at the starting line for the 10K. It's an amazing opportunity to experience the beautiful woods that surround the University of Alaska and Alaska Pacific University campuses. This event is not just about running, it's about giving back too. We proudly support Special Olympics Alaska, an incredible community organization. In 2022, this event raised an impressive $2,000 for them. It's thanks to people like you, who participate in and support events like these, that we're able to make a difference in the lives of these world-class athletes. And 2022 being an Olympic year, we're especially excited to highlight their talents. Join us at the Alaska Distance Classic and be part of an unforgettable event that celebrates running, joy, and community. So lace up your running shoes and let's make some incredible memories together!
