Join us September 29nd for our fourth annual Island Hop! This is a non-competitive run/walk/bike and is also a fundraiser for two awesome local nonprofits, Running Free Alaska and Susitna Bike Institute.

The party kicks off where it all started at G st. at 10 AM. You can fuel up on a complimentary coffee and scone and head out. Follow the chester creek trail to our airport heights location on E. 16th and Logan street. There we will have a guided 20 minute community yoga sesh in our backyard, as well as more information from our donees! Recharge and reset with fresh focaccia and cookies.

At 11:30/12 we will embark on a sweet bike ride on the Campbell Creek Trail that will end with our birthday celebration at our 91st avenue location! There will be cake, music, and a drawing for 5 female and 5 male participants to win an outfit from our community partner lululemon! Anchorage Brewing Company will be open and selling their world class beer. Fire Island Pizza will be slinging pies until 8pm.

Proceeds for the event will go to Running Free Alaska and the Susitna Bike Institute. Running Free Alaska is a running program that trains female inmates at the Hiland Correctional Facility in Eagle River, and Susitna Bike Institute is a Biking school aimed at educating our community on bike repair and maintenance.

The Island Hop in its entirety is about 21k, but everyone is welcome to participate at their pace and skill level for whatever length is fun!
