17th Annual Running with the Bulls

Sunday, August 11th, 2019

The Musk Ox Farm has hosted the “Running with the Bulls” trail race since August 2002.  In either the 10k run or the 5k run/walk, participants will enjoy the challenging trail course cut through the pastures and safely past the 83 musk oxen that occupy the Musk Ox Farm. There is also a 1k Kid’s Fun-Run for all the little ones that wish to join in on the fun! All proceeds are used to care for the animals on the non-profit Musk Ox Farm.  Spectators are more than welcome to come and watch the runners & listen to great live music (feel free to bring chairs and a picnic but leave the dogs at home). Kid’s Fun-Run begins at 1pm Sunday, August 11th, with the other races following shortly after. Don’t miss out on this uniquely Alaskan one-of-a-kind race!!
