Event Description

*Note: Internet Explorer does not support this registration site.

Raise money for local charities! This year will look and feel different compared to years past. We will provide snack boxes for those who participate and keep food booths on pause for another year. This year's walk will be along the scenic riverfront with a fun historical walking tour for families. 

This year's walk is NOT a mass start event

To spread out the number of walkers walking at one time, volunteers will be available from the hours of 2pm-8pm on May 14 at the Visitor Kiosk at Pioneer Park's front gate to check-in participants. This will be where you start and end the walking tour. There are 1-, 2-, 3-, and 3.8-mile options to walk along the riverfront from Pioneer Park to downtown Fairbanks and return. 

You choose the local charity from the list of registered charities who will receive 100% of your registration fees. The Visitor Industry organizes the walk and all money raised through registration fees is donated to local non-profits.

Over the last 18 walks, over $380,000 has been raised for local non-profits.
