Thank you to everyone who came out to help make the 2021 Hammerman a success! Details for the 2022 event will be coming once we lock in the date.
The Hammerman Triathlon and Duathlon are off-road events held at Little Campbell Lake in Anchorage, Alaska. The triathlon course consists of a 0.5-mile open water swim, a 13-mile mountain bike, and 4-mile run. The duathlon substitutes the swim with a short 1.8k run around the lake and then races on the same bike and final run legs as the triathlon. See the course tab for detailed course descriptions and maps.

Hammerman Triathlon and Duathlon Course Map
Swim – The swim will be an in-water start on the north end of the lake. Swimmers will do one lap, staying to the right on the way down and then staying to the right again on the way back. The lake allows for approximately 400 meters each length, for a total of 800 meters.
Duathlon Run #1 – This run is not shown on the map above, but consists of a short loop clockwise around the lake, following a mix of doubletrack and singletrack trails.
Bike – All racers do the same bike course shown in blue on the map above. The course is a mix of doubletrack ski trail and singletrack bike trail. Expect some of everything, from smooth hardpack trail to roots, logs, bumps and jumps. We mixed in a bit of everything the park has to offer. (NOTE: Please be aware of the direction of travel when pre-riding the course. The portion along Bolling Alley can only be ridden the direction of the race on even-numbered days.)
Strava Route – 12.2 mi MTB Cycling Route on Strava
Run – Duathletes will do the same run as the triathlon. The run is a lollipop that starts out following the bike course, but then turning onto singletrack just before you would get to the bridge over Raspberry. Follow the red line on the map above until you loop back to the trail you took out. From here, backtrack exactly the same way you came out to finish at the lake.
