Join us virtually July 12-14 to celebrate the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge during the 28th annual Run for the Refuge. All proceeds go to the Northern Alaska Environmental Center's Arctic Program.

This is a cherished tradition for us, and it was a tough decision to only hold the event virtually this year. We want to uphold the spirit of this event and keep working to make it more accessible. There are so many wonderful ways to be outdoors, and we hope you’ll get inspired to hit the trail, hop on your bike, launch your kayak, or set off on your favorite people-powered adventure. 

To make the biggest impact and show of support for the Arctic Refuge, we’d love your help spreading the word far and wide. Sign up early and join our Facebook Event Page to discuss routes and get inspired! All participants will receive a printable bib, and we hope you’ll share your adventures with #RunForTheRefuge, tagging @NorthernCenter on social media. 

Check back in June to order T-shirts sporting art by Danielle Stickman, our 2024 Featured Artist.
