Ready, set, spring! The ground has begun to thaw, and we’re pumped to dust off our kicks and stretch out our winter legs with these spring footraces:
• Anchorage: The Alaska Heart Run on April 21 will bring together hundreds to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and funds for the American Heart Association.
• Fairbanks: The Breakup Triathlon on May 16 celebrates Alaska’s spring season with a course around the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus.
• Ketchikan: The Prince of Wales Island Marathon on May 26 invites runners and walkers from across the country to southeast Alaska for good competition and better views.
