Annual Meeting Notice
The running club will be holding its annual meeting next month. The annual meeting is a great place to get reaquainted with fellow runners and provide input regarding the club to the board of directors.
Club members will be voting on three board of directors vacancies . We are seeking individuals to join the ARC board who:
- Desire to have fun while benefiting the community
- Passionate about running
- Motivated to help ARC grow and best serve our running community
- Possess a diverse background
- Interested in race management, event planning, and/or volunteer coordination
- Able to spend 5-8 hours a month attending meetings, participating in committees, and representing ARC in the community
The meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 25,2020 at the Pangea restaurant located at 508 West 6th Avenue in downtown Anchorage. Doors will open at 5:45 PM. The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM. Light refreshments and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. You must be an Anchorage Running Club member to attend.
The running club is now accepting scholarship applications for 2020. Anchorage high school graduating seniors who are runners are eligible to apply. This includes seniors from public, private and charter schools within the Municipality of Anchorage, as well as home-schooled seniors.
After a five year hiatus the club is resuming our weekly running group. Lisa Deloney will be our coach. Lisa trains with the Raven Run Club and is a certified RRCA running coach who has run most distances from 5K to an Ultramarathon. There are some other awesome coaches who want to jump in with us from time to time as well. Meet on Sundays at 12:30 at Flattop Pizza (6th and F Street).
Race Date Change For 2020
The Boondocks Breakaway 5K/2,5K trail race has been moved from the first Sunday in July to the last Sunday in April. The 2020 Boondocks Breakaway will be held on Sunday, April 26. The location of the race and course information will be announced at a future date, once the details have been worked out. We are hoping that the date change might help to increase the number of race participants which has been declining over the past few years. It is felt that this decline was caused at least in part by its close proximity to the Masters race which was held during the same week.
