Alaska Salmon Runs are On The Road Again!

Sign up for the 2021 Alaska Salmon Runs here for this year’s Alaska Salmon Runs on July 17. There’s a distance for everyone, from the long-distance marathon, the half-marathon, the 10K, the 5K, and down to the 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk.

To minimize exposure to our dedicated race volunteers, please register on-line or at Bidarki Recreation Center by July 14, 2021, 5 p.m.

Please visit the Salmon Jam web page for more race details, including the shuttle and start times for each race distance.

And check out the Copper River Salmon Jam festival calendar for a complete listing of all the great activities going on this week!

Join us for a post-run salmon barbecue dinner at the Pioneer Igloo, 620 First Street, 5 – 7 p.m.  $15/person, $40/family, or bring a salad or side dish to share and get in free!  We’ll be giving out runners’ awards and door prizes. All are welcome!
