Healthy Kodiak 2020

Healthy Kodiak is going digital for 2020, and that starts with our partnership with the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce to bring you the Kodiak Crab Fest Virtual Run & Walk Campaign to make Kodiak healthier both physically and economically. Here is a quick snapshot of everything going on:


July 17 – August 23

Kodiak Crab Festival 2020 Virtual Run & Walk

Registration Information

The Kodiak Chamber of Commerce and Healthy Kodiak are partnering together to make Kodiak healthier both physically and economically! So, let’s do something healthy together while staying apart! We want to encourage as many people as possible to run, walk, or hike to accumulate over 73,500 virtual miles which is walking the Island of Kodiak about 275 times! So, sign up now, create or join a team (friends, co-workers, family, etc.) and share with relatives, friends, and work colleagues to support the Kodiak Crab Festival Virtual Run & Walk. Although the focus of the event is fundraising for the Kodak Chamber of Commerce — its “friend” raising — we greatly appreciate any additional donations you wish to give at the time of registration. By donating to the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce, you are helping the Chamber to continue offering business services like guest speakers, business networking events, educational partnerships with the Small Business Development Center, other unique and independent educational platforms, and the community events you love like Crab Fest. Remember, supporting the Chamber is supporting businesses in your community. Additional proceeds over $30,000 will benefit the Kodiak Economic Development Corporation Small Businesses Relief grants. 

PRIZES:We’ll announce the overall winners on August 23rd at 5pm on Facebook LIVE. The Top Individual Fundraiser will win (2) Unrestricted Alaska Airline tickets to anywhere they fly!!! The Top Finisher (most steps taken) goes home with an outdoor lover’s prize package! 

WHO: YOU! Whether you live on Kodiak Island, are nostalgic for the Island Life you used to live, longing for your dream vacation, or just want to help a noble cause. Invite your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to take part in the challenge (from a safe distance) or donate to your fundraiser. 

WHAT: Set your personal goal to run, walk, hike, or fundraise. Track your progress on your favorite wearable tracker or the Charity Footprints app. 

WHERE: The Kodiak Crab Festival Virtual Run & Walk takes place where you are — your home, your neighborhood, your trails, your vacation etc. 

WHEN: The Challenge runs from July 17 to August 23, 2020, but you can join at any time — after all, your fitness goal is determined by you. 

NOT A RUNNER? NOT A PROBLEM.You can participate in the Kodiak Crab Festival Virtual Run & Walk by running, walking, or hiking. Activities can be tracked via Apple Watch, Fitbit, Garmin, Misfit, Android wearables, Charity Footprints or Strava iOS/Android mobile applications, or can be manually entered through the campaign website. Any fitness activity will be recorded by the device as steps. 2000 steps = 1 mile.
