Curious WHY it’s called the Breakup Triathlon? Alaska.org tells us.
“Alaska’s year really begins here— [April-May] when daylight starts to last past bedtime and temperatures don’t freeze at night. The snow melts and the ground thaws.” The rivers, now ice roadways, begin to literally break apart!
Won’t you join us? ...
HI! My name is Triny Willerton, I was hit by a careless driver in 2018 while riding my bike. I was almost killed and I decided to do everything I could to help prevent what happened to me from happening to others. I founded It Could Be Me a non profit with a mission to make roads safe for everyone. Last year we joined a coalition with Vision Zero and Families for Safe Streets to request congressional support for the Zero Traffic Deaths Resolution. We have a virtual meeting with Senator Dan Sullivan next week and we need constituents. The meetings take 30 minutes and it is a great opportunity to share your experience and make a difference. If you would like to help please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to this post. Thank you so much! ...
North Pole Triathlon | June 25, 2022 | Olympic
Only 82 slots remain.
The second triathlon in our series is located in the city of North Pole! North Pole is a small Alaskan city, near Fairbanks. It's known for its year-round Christmas decorations, including candy cane–striped street lights. Santa Claus House is a Christmas store with walls covered in children’s letters to Santa and a huge Santa statue outside. Streets have names like Kris Kringle Drive and Mistletoe Lane. Nearby, the Chena Lake Recreation Area has a beach, nature trails and picnic areas.
The North Pole Triathlon is an Olympic distance race held in and around the beautiful Chena Lake Recreation Area. The area includes a 260-acre lake and is surrounded by spruce trees.
It is an opportunity to swim 1500 meters in some of the best open water in the region and to bike 40K (26 miles) through a great community. The 10K (6.2 mile) run will be on a combination of paved and gravel trails within the Chena Lake Recreation Area. We hope you will agree this event is something locals can be proud of in the world of triathlons. It is also a great introduction for anyone who has never swam in an open water race and wants to give it a try. A wetsuit is HIGHLY recommended!
SWIM: Water temperatures at Chena Lakes are on the cool side (55 to 65 degrees) so it is advised to bring a wetsuit. USAT, allows wetsuits for water temperature at or below 78 degrees F. The swim begins with a mass start along the shore. The course will be marked with large orange floats at each corner.
BIKE: The bike course is 40 km on public roads and relatively flat.
RUN: The run is a well-marked 10 km on a combination of paved and dirt trails. It consists of one large loop with a short out and back followed by a shorter second loop.
Not a fan of one of the three events? We have a relay option so you can still participate! Teams of two or three people may choose any combination of legs ( 🏊♀️ 🚴 🏃🏼♂️).

Breakup Triathlon | Sunday, May 8, 2022 | Sprint Distance
UPDATE: only 3 spots remain
The race was named after Alaska's spring when the ice and snow that has accumulated over the winter months starts to melt away. As the ice thaws, the days become longer, temperatures grow warmer, and ice over the rivers begins to give way to the currents of the Chena River and surrounding rivers. The ice breaks up into chunks and floats lazily downstream. This is what we call the Breakup season.
🏊♀️ 🚴 🏃 This is the first sprint triathlon of the season for Fairbanks, Alaska and the only sprint triathlon within a 250 mile radius in the month of May. The Breakup Tri offers a unique opportunity to give the sport of triathlon a try without being intimidated or overwhelmed by the number of participants. The race will consist of a 500 yard swim, 13.1 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run through and around the beautiful University of Alaska Fairbanks @uafairbanks campus. There is a 99-participant limit and it sells out every year, so be sure to register early to ensure a spot.
The mission of The Breakup Tri is to introduce the sport of triathlon to those who are looking for a new challenge, a healthier lifestyle, cross training, or to see what the sport is all about.
Afraid of open water swimming? FRET NOT! The swim is in a pool!
This is a great opportunity to try something new in a friendly and inclusive environment! You won’t be the only beginner there, trust us. We hope you enjoy it!
Once you’re done with the race, enjoy the area; it has PLENTY to offer.
Registration is now OPEN and it sells out quickly. Have any questions about the race, lodging, or things to do in the area? Ask below. 👇👇👇 ...
