We'll never take the place of your favorite running shoes,
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.
