We're combining the best of both: in-person and month-long events! During the entire month of June, racers will be able to take to the beach for a 10 mile run/walk or fat-bike, or a 3 mile run/walk, post their times to our race director, and receive prizes! We're also hosting a casual in-person kickoff on Tuesday, June 1st at Cannery Rd Beach Access: Meet up at 5:30, run/walk/bike at 6pm.
Here's how to participate:
Step 1. Register & bike/run/walk anytime in the month of June. Race categories: 3 mile run, 10 mile run, or 10 mile fat-bike. You can submit multiple times in multiple categories for a $5 fee per additional time on top of single registration. Each $5 Additional Entry gets you another ticket into the prize raffle, another chance to best your time, another opportunity to mix it up between biking and running, and another warm fuzzy feeling knowing that the proceeds go to a great cause!
Step 2. Record your time via GPS app (Strava, Garmin, Apple Health, etc.) during your run/bike and submit it as a screenshot via email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of your run/bike. Raven Earth & Glass Works is making beautiful "Winners Cups", so we encourage friendly competition as you vie amongst other racers for the best times!
A leaderboard will be posted on inletkeeper.org/m2m, and updated as times from registered entrants are submitted. Top 3 times in each category will receive grand prizes, so there may be some that decide to go out, run/bike again, and post new times to try to reclaim a top 3 spot!
Step 3. Fundraise for the cause! Participants are encouraged (but not required) to help raise critical funds in conjunction with their ride to protect the Cook Inlet watershed and the life it sustains. Set up your own fundraiser page! It's easy and fun - and you can win additional prizes the more you raise! Reach out to David@inletkeeper.org for help and pro tips!
Pick up your race swag and prizes starting Thursday July 1st at the Cook Inletkeeper Community Action Studio in Soldotna (35911 Kenai Spur Hwy, Unit 13). Registration fees support Cook Inletkeeper's mission to protect the Cook Inlet watershed and all the life it sustains. Registration includes a goodie bag with WILD shwag! Feel free to email David@inletkeeper.org if you want to schedule a specific time to pick up your swag.
Race Routes: Our 10-mile route usually goes from the Kasilof to the Kenai River mouth. Kasilof access point: Kasilof River Special Use Area off Kasilof Beach Stub Rd. Kenai access point: Kenai South Beach parking lot off Cannery Rd. The 3-mile beach run usually goes from Cannery Rd Beach to Kenai River mouth and back. We encourage racers to run these routes. If there is another 3 or 10 mile stretch of beach more accessible to you, race there. Take a picture and send it with your time, we'd love to see people outside taking advantage of our Beautiful Alaskan beaches!
Park at either Cannery Road or the Kasilof Beach entrance, if you are in the Kenai/Soldotna area. Run or bike half the distance out, and turn around for the return to finish. If you are living with someone and able to take two cars and leave one to do the full beach, that’s Great! Whichever route you take, JUST HAVE FUN!!
