Superhero Showdown



We need you to help us save the day again. So suit up in a great costume — anything from X-Men to the Justice League — and join us April 11th. We’ll be running on MLK Drive, and don’t think for a moment that the fun ends when you cross the finish line! Not only will you find a roundup of local food trucks, but you can toss the kids into a bouncy castle and make sure their capes work! Costumes are encouraged but not required; after all, superhero face-offs do involve a lot of innocent bystanders.

5K Heroes vs. Villains

Who will triumph, Heroes or Villains? Create a team and pick your side. The fastest team, biggest team and best-costumed team will be the victors.


The course begins on Dr. MLK Drive just north of the Chuck Albrecht fields parking lot and heads east.  The 1.3K course turns around after about .65K and goes west on Dr. MLK Drive back to the parking lot.  The 5K course heads east for about 1000M where you turn around and head back to the start for the end of the first lap. Next, head east on Dr. MLK Drive to run a slightly longer distance out before turning around. On the 2nd lap back towards the start, the course does a dogleg on Tudor Centre Drive, turning around just before Tudor and then following Dr. MLK Drive back to the Chuck Albrecht parking lot. For more information reference the map below!


Parking will be available in the Anchorage Municipal building parking lot, located just east of the Chuck Albrecht softball complex on the west side of Elmore Road.


Following the race, plan to stick around and join us for some fun! All finishers will receive medals and we will have inflatables and face painting set up in the parking lot.

Bag Check

There will be a bag check in the Chuck Albrecht parking lot. You can drop your warmups with race staff. Please clearly mark your bib number on the bag provided, and make sure to label all of your gear with your name.

Safety Policy

For participant safety, and to comply with our insurance, we do not allow pets, bicycles, or rollerblades in the race. We ask participants running with baby joggers or strollers to please start in the back of the field and to be courteous to your fellow runners.

*Registration fees are non-refundable.
