A big hasty half thank you

Thank you to all who ran, walked, and supported the Hasty Half Marathon and Extra Tough 5K & 1 Mile event! We were blessed by great weather in addition to the amazing support and positive energy that was infectious amongst the runners and volunteers.


The Hasty Half embodies values that are near and dear to us: the joy of gathering together in friendship; the pleasure and gratitude we feel for being able to run; and the vital importance of belonging — being part of a community where we all look out for each other and work together to make a better place for everyone.

Together, we raised over $2,600 for NAMI Juneau, the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. These generous donations will be dedicated to programs that inform, educate, and support anyone in our community impacted my mental health challenges.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Southeast Alaska Road Runners for their continued support, Heritage Coffee, Alaska Probiotics, Darla Orbistondo, Louie’s Douglas Inn and NorthStar Trekking — your help and support was immeasurable and resulted in another successful Hasty Half fun run event.

A special thank you to the incredible support station volunteers: the Coast Guard, Lacey Sanders & friends; Crossfit Juneau; Girls on the Run; Members of Thunder Mountain Cross Country Team; NAMI Juneau; Erika, Sydney, and Ashlyn Holst and Gracie Lazar.

We are thrilled you joined us in celebrating the joy of running, friendship, and community and made this year’s Hasty Half such a success!

Shannon Hasty, Sara Raster, and the Hasty Half Gang

Crystal Bourland, Executive Director of NAMI Juneau
