5K and 10K footrace and community walk. Join us on Sunday, June 16th at 1:30 for bib pick up, then get ready to start the race at 3:00. $15 to participate. Money will cover race expenses and proceeds will go to the NAACP scholarship fund. Runners tend to make great times on this flat course.

The cultural benefit: The race course takes runners and walkers by Fairbanks landmarks that honor people of color who brought our community forward. The 5K route is a loop away from and back to the J.P. Jones Center, and stays south of Airport Way. The 10K route include an additional loop north of Airport Way.

Yes, it's Father's Day. So bring your dad to run with you. This event is piggy-backing on Juneteenth weekend, including the NAACP's community fair at Bernice Alldridge ball fields on Saturday, June 15th.


  • Starting Sunday, June 16th, 2019, repeats every year on the 3rd Sunday of June until Thursday, July 02, 2020 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
