Juneau Trail & Road Runners (JTRR) (formally known as Southeast Road Runners - SERR) is a group of dedicated individuals who take advantage of the fantastic natural setting available in Juneau, Alaska to achieve a healthy and positive lifestyle through running. The club strives to represent the entire Juneau running community, young and old, male and female, recreational and serious, by organizing races and group runs suitable for a wide spectrum of abilities.
JTRR promotes running by being a peer group, a sounding board, and a central planning center for running 12 months of the year. Running is fun for JTRR members, and we strive to create an invigorating atmosphere that provides goals to keep us motivated year-round.
We hope you enjoy our site, and we welcome any comments, suggestions, photos, or other information of interest to our members.
The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) is the largest national association of community-based running organizations collectively dedicated to growing participation in the sport for all ages and abilities by inspiring people to run through engagement with clubs, events, coaches, and youth programs. From humble beginnings in the late 1950'3, RRCA has grown to represent over 1,000 running clubs and events in the USA.
With the growth has come a plethora of programs and services designed to facilitate club formation, membership growth, and support of grass-roots running. Just a few examples include coaching certification, race director certification, the Runner Friendly Community designation, National Running Awards and Volunteer Recognition.
But perhaps RRCA's most valuable asset is its insurance program, through which running and event clubs can avail themselves of liability and officers & directors coverage. This becomes very handy when clubs must apply for permits to conduct their events on rights-of-way and property that require indemnification. RRCA has leveraged its club base to negotiate low-cost coverage and take an otherwise show-stopping barrier to conducting races off the table.
Juneau Trail & Road Runners has been an RRCA Member Club for many years. We appreciate our association with this organization and the benefits we have accrued from it.

Ever wonder what JTRR does with your membership money?
JTRR contributes to Juneau youth running groups such as Girls on the run and the Lynn Canal Running Camp. The Girls on the Run program combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. The culmination of their season ends in a festive and inspiration 5K for the girls. The Lynn Canal Running Camp conducts an annual 6-day, 5-night running camp for youths 8th to 12th grade.
JTRR also sponsors and conducts a vigorous race calendar each running season which includes Juneau's very own marathon and half marathon event. Running events require consistent electronic timers, bibs, road signs, equipment and equipment storage locker, refreshments, and permits among many other miscellaneous items.
What kind of perks do you get with your JTRR membership?
25% off a 20-visit punch card at the Dimond Park Field House track. This is a great alternative to running in some of Juneau's winter weather or as a way to avoid the boredom of running on a treadmill.
10% discount on running gear at the Nugget Alaskan Outfitter
Deals and discounts on exclusive JTRR running gear and events (movies, speakers, etc.)
In addition to all of the above listed benefits, you get the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting a tried and true Juneau organization that provides Juneau runners with opportunities to enjoy their sport and add to the active Alaskan quality of life that we all appreciate.
The members of the JTRR Board thank you for your continued support of the Club!
