Stoked to work with local artist @adriftprints on this year’s Twilight 12K & 6K art! We’ve got a LIMITED run of hats available through registration, and you can also score one of the original pieces of Ptarmigan Peak inspired art. Link in bio!
Linocut is a style of printmaking where the artist carves out the details from a flexible carving block, and then rolls ink over the remaining block to define the image you see. It also means the piece you receive is a true original -
each one is hand inked, pressed and pulled by @adriftprints in her home studio. Because of this handmade process, each one will have its own unique details.
Each print is signed, dated and titled in pencil. Archival quality inks ensure that your print will last for years. This print is a rich, earthy-red, and shiny gold. Printed on a natural, handmade and hand-torn Lokta paper with beautiful flecks of fiber and texture. Approx. 11x14”.
Calling all @oiselle lovers, this women’s-specific brand is back in store 🎉 We are carrying up to size 16 & 18, and with 3 length options for the Roga short you can find the perfect fit for your body that will stay in place and keep you comfy!

Meet Denise from the @ravenrunclub 👋🏼
Denise has been training with the Raven Run Club for 3 years and never thought she would be able to run a full mile. Now with several miles under her belt and the completion of a half marathon, you can say she’s been bitten by the running bug. Running outdoors with her friends is her social outlet, and one of her favorite places to run is Taku Lake.
The Raven Run Club pushes her to do workouts she would do on her own, and one of her most fond memories is another member @nepatterson circling back and running the last lap of her workout with her. #teamwork 🙌🏻

See you under the midnight sun ... Twilight 12K is Friday, June 4!
The sun is peeking around the corner, and we're so excited to welcome it and you back to the 2021 Twilight 12K! Join Skinny Raven Sports and @hokaoneone for this Alaskan favorite. A year after this event went all virtual, we are so excited to be returning to the trails and spending what’s sure to be an awesome summer evening with you, in person! Psst, virtual will still be available as well. Registration link in bio!
This year’s art/logo is in collaboration with @adriftprints, a local artist here in Anchorage! The art is inspired by the front range, Ptarmigan Peak. From Kristin, @adriftprints: “I wanted my carving to capture the sweeping lines, and the aspect that leads the summit. I love how each face of Ptarmigan reveals its own features and personality. I hiked up by myself one summer and was able to steep in solace, sunshine, and blue sky with the rest of the Chugach and Dena'ina land sprawling out around me.
Linocut is a style of printmaking where the artist carves out the details from a flexible carving block, and then rolls ink over the remaining block to give you the image you see. It also means the piece you receive is a true original - each one is hand inked, pressed and pulled by me in my home studio. Because of this handmade process, each one will have its own unique details.”

Thank you for your patience with events and changing plans in 2020. We’re excited about a new year, a new season and seeing our friends in person (but from a distance!) this summer.
The getting is still good for all our favorite winter activities right now and Team Raven (and our furry friends) have found some great ways to enjoy it! ❄️
The snow hasn’t been cooperating 🙄 so we’re bringing the heat ourselves in spring and summer apparel! 🔥 What are you looking forward to this summer?
The new @hokaoneone Mach 4 takes big leap forward, built on themes from the Rocket X and Carbon X (shoe on the right!). Designed for logging long miles, this everyday trainer delivers a lively ride and energetic feel that is unquestionably HOKA. Softer and bouncier than the previous iteration, this is an up-tempo shoe. Light, fast and responsive, the Mach 4 delivers a daily dose of speed. #newseasonofspeed #timetofly
Broke out some new @vuoriclothing, @brooksrunning, and @newbalance apparel for a yoga class and weightlifting during our stay at @resortalyeska 💪 Strength and flexibility are an often overlooked but important part of running - not only can they make you faster but they also help with injury prevention! #AlyeskaResort
Spring is in the air and it is all time down here in Girdwood and the trails around @resortalyeska! Testing out some new warmer weather apparel and shoes! #AlyeskaResort #hikingalaska

Get ready to #RunEverywhere - March, 24 -
In celebrating running as a mode of human-powered travel, @runjanji and SRS are challenging those of you that can to use running (or other human-powered transportation) as your only mode of transportation for the entire day next Wednesday, March 24. Participate, share a photo on social with the #RunEverywhereAK tag and be entered to win one of a few SRS gift cards! Plus, check out some of the rad @runjanji gear we’ve got in-store!
Why? We believe running is one of the best ways to connect with ourselves, each other, and the world around us. Plus, it's an amazing way for us to lower our carbon footprint and reduce the impact that we have on the planet by relying on foot-powered movement instead of petroleum based vehicles. Even if just for a day, we can make a difference. But our hope is that this challenge lives on and becomes routine.
ALL studded footwear is on sale! Winter is still holding strong but our remaining stock has got to go, hurry in or click fast, inventory is limited! Online store link in stories!
Skinny Raven is hiring!

🚨 NEW SHOE 🚨
Since its inception in 1968, @thenorthface has been synonymous with rigorously tested reliable outdoor gear for any occasion on any terrain. Their newest innovation, the Vectiv Trail Running line redefines lightweight comfort in the trail running category. @thenorthface_trail used input from their North Face Team Athletes to design a lightweight running shoe capable of handling the demands of serious training and wear without sacrificing comfort or responsiveness. The Enduris sports a rocker midsole to assist you every step of the way. A 3D TPU plate adds multi-direction stability and propulsion to keep each stride feeling smooth and easy. Combine that with a super lightweight dual-density foam in the midsole and you have a shoe that inspires you to get out and move. Whether you’re heading out for an easy jog on your local trails or a technical training run atop your favorite ridgeline the Enduris will take you there. Come down to Skinny Raven and slip into a pair to see for yourself just how the Enduris will push you to #NeverStopExploring.
On foot the shoe feels super supportive and responsive almost like your foot is popping off the ground. This shoe is comparable in feel to several existing Trail Running favorites notably the Hoka Evo SpeedGoat, Brooks Catamount and New Balance Trail More.
