Event notes
*Same course as before just more accurate mileage*
The 26.4K and relay is a trail course and is often muddy and slick in the fall. Terrain varies from 4 wheeler trails to single track and ski trails. The trail is very pretty with all the DANGERS of rural Alaska. No one under 18 is allowed without an adult running with them. Please be prepared for remote, wild conditions. Bear spray is encouraged. This race begins at 10AM.

The 5.5K is on the bike path beginning at Noon. Both races start at the Flying Squirrel Bakery mile 11 and finish in downtown Talkeetna.

You may register as an individual or a 3-person relay team. TEAMS MUST register EACH member’s details and pay the FULL team registration in one registration. Each person registered prior to the cut-off date of July 1, 2019 will get the T-Shirt size they choose (runs slim). You can indicate the size required for each individual team member.


The Bun To Bun trail 26.4K/relay and 5K fun run began as a way for the Talkeetna Elementary PTA to encourage healthy activity and to raise money for its Healthy Snack and Salad Bar programs. Our first official run in 2014 began and finished at two bakeries: the Flying Squirrel Bakery Cafe and the Talkeetna Roadhouse.

We have since expanded the mission of the event to support other PTA programs that aim to improve the quality of the educational experience for the students of Talkeetna Elementary School. Currently, our most ambitious project is funding our art program. Without this program there would be very little art education in the school.

With our Healthy Snack Program we attempt to expose children to a wide variety of healthy, nutritious foods. Our Salad Bar Program allows us to offer a free salad bar 2 days a week to all children.

Please help the Talkeetna PTA succeed in providing these and many other services to the children of Talkeetna.
