    Does it means my next elite status is Gold?
    Is it worth to make a mileage run to get to next level?

    You'll need 798 miles on AK or its partners just to re-qualify (qualify?) for MVP. You'll then need 25K additional miles on AK or its partners to qualify for Gold. The requirement for qualifying for Gold is 40K miles all on AK or 50K miles split any way between AK and its partners. You'll need to decide if Gold status meets you're specific travel desires. If you fly AK (or its partners) enough on a regular basis, the benefits of Gold status (Gold and Guest of Gold First Class upgrades, 100% bonus miles for flights and unlimited free changes to award reservations) can be quite valuable.
