Nanook Recreation virtual race series returns

Welcome to Nanook Recreation's virtual race series challenge! This virtual race is meant to help you get out and exercise during the winter. The idea behind this event is that each person who participates runs, jogs, walks, or skis their own 5K, 10K or half-marathon.

The races are spaced out with the 5K starting in October and closing on Jan. 1, 2023, followed by the 10K race closing on Feb. 15, and our last race, the half-marathon, closing on May 10. Each race has its own website. There are free training programs on each site for new runners to use and the races are spaced out so you have time to train your way from 5K novice to half-marathon runner.

After completing each race, participants can log their times on the race day website so even if you are not on the Fairbanks campus you can participate. Visit the Student Recreation Center website for registration and individual race websites.
