Be sure and mark your running calendars for the Anchorage Running Club's first fall race,   The Oktoberfest - Run For Beans.

The Run For Beans is our annual chairity fundraiser. All profits generated from the race are donated to Bean's Cafe and the Brother Francis Shelter. Last year's race entry fees and participant donations allowed us to raise $7500 for each charity in addition to a large quantity of food and clothing that was donated by race participants.

We will be using the same 5K and 10K out and back courses that we used last year along the Coastal Trail. There will also be a free 1/4 mile kid's fun run. 

As has been the tradition for many years, runners in costume will receive a one minute head start. Oktoberfest 2014 will once again feature chip timing by chrono track.

Back by popular demand: The race memorabilia for this year's run will be a short sleeve cotton t-shirt. All runners who register early will receive a shirt.

We will be collecting food and clothing donations again this year.

There will be race day registration and bib pickup for runners who are not able to register on line.
