For many Anchorage families, the Bonny Sosa Tuesday Night Race Series is a fall family tradition. These fun runs are like no other in Anchorage. Come rain, snow, sleet, hail or wind, weather permitting these races are rarely cancelled. Whether you are a competitive runner or just want to get out and see a new trail or meet new friends, this is the event for you. Three separate race courses are set each week at a different location around town. Local runners often volunteer as guest course setters and some have gained a reputation of setting unique routes. While the Munchkin and Farm Leagues usually stay on heavily used trails, the Lightning League is a different story. Lightning courses have been known to follow narrow game trails, cross streams, and slog through swamps. The race course will be revealed to no one until just prior to the start. Interested in volunteering, contact Michelle Fehribach at FehribachMR@muni.org, 343-6566.

In 2008, after the death of Bonny Sosa, long time fitness advocate and founder/director of Healthy Futures, the race series was dedicated to her and her name became part of the Tuesday Night Races. With her ‘can do’ attitude, positive energy and passion for life, Bonny was a front runner and activist in the community, and a friend to all that had the privilege to know her.
