but we'll be there every step of the way!
We want you to get the most out of your running, whether it's training for a personal best in an upcoming marathon or running with the kids on weekends. Running Club North is committed to promoting all forms of running in Interior Alaska. Recreational or competitive: we've got it all. Join us on a training run or show up on race day. The miles go by easier with friends.
