The Musk Ox Farm has hosted the “Running with the Bulls” trail race in August since 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 80+ 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, enjoy fabulous food, and take a chance at winning some incredible prizes. Kid’s Fun-Run begins at 1pm Sunday, August 12th, with the other races following shortly after. Don’t miss out on this uniquely Alaskan one-of-a-kind race!!
