2018 Alaska Runner's Calendar Update
In previous years the Running Club has mailed Alaska Runner's Calendars to all club members. It was one of the perks of club membership. The club will not be able to do this for 2018 due to non-availability of calendars.. The following message is posted to Anchorage Parks and Recreation runner's calendar web page: No hard copy calendars are printed for 2018 due to increasing costs and decreasing advertising revenue.
The calendar will be available on line in electronic format. Once we have a link it will be posted here on the web site and on the club Facebook page.
No Wednesday Dome Runs For Winter 2018
With the announced reopening of The Dome next week we have been receiving emails from club members regarding the resumption of the Wednesday walk/run with friends at the dome. We received the following from ARC president Dawn Hansen this morning:
"It might be a good idea to let our membership know we do not have a deal in place with the Dome management, so Wednesday nights at the Dome are not happening at this time. If we are able to come to an agreement with the new management we will let our members know, but at this time the ARC does not have the Dome on Wednesday nights. If our members want to use the space they need to pay the fees just like everyone else."
Hopefully the club will be able to work something out with the Dome before the end of the winter but for now we will not be resuming the Wednesday dome runs.
