New Online Registration

You may join or renew your Anchorage Running Club membership on-line. Join now at our new 2020 membership web site. The running club has used Chronotrack for the past several user for membership registration. However, Chronotrack has advised the club that race and membership registration services are no longer supported. As a result we have moved race and membership registration to a new service provider, Runsignup. The good news is that Anchorage Running Club 2020 event discounts will be tied directly to your RunSignUp account. Discounts for ARCevents will now be automatically applied, and there is no longer a need to remember and use a discount code. You will need to remember the RunSignUp username and password that you used for your club membership when you register for a 2020 ARC event to get your discount.

Getting registered using the new online registration service provided by runsignup.com has proven to be difficult for some first time users. Matthwew at Skinny Raven timing services has created a tutorial that provides step-by-step instructions for navigating the new registration site. Please note that the instructions include the steps family membership. If you are signing up for a single membership you should select single membership and ignore the steps for adding family members.
