News and updates to come

Registration for 2021 is coming soon – Stay tuned for updates

This event is sanctioned by USA Triathlon, and participants must either be a member of USAT or purchase a one-day race license. If you are an annual USAT member, you will see a $15 credit off your entry. If you need the one day license, the entry fee includes this in the price. In order to obtain event insurance and official USAT sanctioning, the following policies must be posted:

• To maintain the integrity of the event timing, the combining of any leg from a solo participant with that of any team is not allowed.

• Official race bib transfer policy: Due to increased litigation and higher insurance costs, no participant may transfer his/her entry slot/bib number to another individual. Sorry, but this one is a biggie. If an individual is found to have raced under someone else’s name or bib number, that person will be disqualified.

• Refund Policy: Planning and developing an athletic event that ensures adequate support and supplies for participants is difficult. We rely on the registration information to provide us with an accurate participant count. Because this is vital to the success of our events, there will be no refunds once a registration has been processed.

Olympic Distance Course

(scroll down for Sprint Course)

Swim (1500m) 

2-Laps in Little Campbell Lake – More details and map coming soon. Water temperature is expected to be in the mid 60’s and wetsuits are strongly recommended.


Bike (40k)

The bike will take place between Little Campbell Lake and Kincaid Park. Caution: The first section of road is dirt/gravel.   Olympic distance racers will complete 2 full laps of the course before finishing at the Kincaid Stadium.  Do not turn into the stadium parking lot until you are finishing.  Use caution when making the turn into the parking lot as you are coming off a fast downhill and it is a tight corner. Riders have crashed here before, don’t add yourself to the list.

Run (10k)

The run will exit T2 into the Kincaid stadium and head out through the tunnel on the south end. Runners will turn right and join up with the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail by the chalet and follow the trail down the hill and north along the coastline. At the 5k point, runners will turn around (unless they prefer to run backwards on the 2nd half) and make their way back along the same route to the finish in the stadium. Don’t mind that little .5 mile uphill at the end, it only hurts for a little while.


Sprint Distance Course

Swim (800m) 

1-Lap in Little Campbell Lake – See Olympic swim course map above. Water temperature is expected to be in the mid 60’s and wetsuits are strongly recommended.

Bike (15 Miles)

See Olympic bike course map above.  Caution: The first section of road is dirt/gravel.   For the sprint, racers will complete ONE full lap of the course before finishing at the Kincaid Stadium.  Use caution when making the turn into the parking lot as you are coming off a fast downhill and it is a tight corner. Riders have crashed here before, don’t add yourself to the list.

Run (5k)

See the Olympic run course map above.  The run will exit T2 into the Kincaid stadium and head out through the tunnel on the south end. Runners will turn right and join up with the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail by the chalet and follow the trail down the hill and north along the coastline. At the 2.5k point, runners will turn around (unless they prefer to run backwards on the 2nd half) and make their way back along the same route to the finish in the stadium. Don’t mind that little .5 mile uphill at the end, it only hurts for a little while.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there something you are dying to know about the race? If so, check the FAQ list below. If you don’t see your question answered here, drop us a note and we will try to answer it.

  • Isn’t the first section of road gravel? – Yes, the first 1/3 of a mile is dirt/gravel.  We have a plan in place to have the road “tuned up” the week prior to the event to take out most of the roughness.  We have used this successfully before for a road triathlon. Racers just need to use caution for this first section until they reach the pavement.  Consider it the “Alaskan Style” aspect of our race.  
  • What kind of bike should I use? – Whatever you have (except e-bikes).  While road or TT bikes would be advantageous, all bikes are welcome.  Just make sure they are in good working order.   
  • Do I need a wetsuit for the swim? – Water temperatures range from the low 60’s to about 70 degrees depending on the weather leading up to the event. Wetsuits are highly recommended, but not required. We always have a few racers who swim without, but the vast majority use a wetsuit.


We will populate this soon, but in the meantime, if you have any specific questions, feel free to send me an e-mail at jasonlamoreaux@hotmail.com and I will see if I can answer them.
