Sign up online and save $5 on registration before Sept. 30. Registrants recieve an adult long sleeve race shirt and a free aces ticket voucher for the 2016-17 season.
A portion of the race proceeds will be donated to the Alaska Run for Women. The primary focus of the Alaska Run for Women is to provide grants, thru fundraising, to non-profits that create awareness and decrease the impact of breast cancer on Alaska communities through education, outreach, research, early detection and treatment.
There's also a free kids one-mile fun run will happen at 10 a.m. on the Anchorage Football Stadium track prior to the main run. Kids t-shirts available for $10.
Alaska Aces players and staff and SMG staff will be on hand to help direct and encourage runners on the trail and be available for photos and autographs.
