2020 AK Salmon Runs

 In Cordova, Outdoor Activities, Running

Healthy and active fun for the whole family!

Registration for the Alaska Salmon Runs on July 18 for the Coho 10K, the Humpy 5K, and the Smolt 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk is now open! You may also participate by running one of those distances earlier in the week and posting your time online.

This year, we’re inviting runners – either participating virtually or in town – to “get your salmon on” and jazz up your running togs a little with salmon-themed attire. We will have prizes for the best outfits! Running results will be posted online, and runners can use digital photo frames for posting race photos on social media.  Race certificates will also be available online, and as always, we’ll give out top finishers’ results, making the announcements virtually this year.

We are keeping the event simple and affordable this year, offering vintage t-shirts. Come out and run with us, it’s a great way to stay healthy, get outside, and fill your lungs with clean air!
