General registration all events.*

General registration for all events will open at 8:00 p.m. February 21, 2021.

*We recommend registering early

  • Registration for the live event is limited to 300 people.*

  • The 300 limit includes individual and team racers.

  • Virtual event registration is unlimited to the numbers that may register! 

USAT Membership: A USAT membership or one-day license is required to race in the live in-person event. USAT membership will be verified in the online registration platform. Registrants will be asked to supply their USAT number, purchase a one-day license, or renew/purchase a full USAT membership. Visit the USAT website to learn more. 

Race Ages

  • Adult Individuals: 12 yrs old & up

  • Teams: 12 yrs old & up

  • Kids Tri: 6-12 yrs old


Note: Age is based on age you will be on December 31st of the race year per USAT rules (i.e. if you turn 46 on July 15, even though you will still be 45 on race day, you will be 46 on 12/31, therefore your age is 46 years old). For 12 year olds it is key to know that you may only be 11 years old on race day in June, but have a birthday in September where you turn 12; this makes the racer 12 years old on December 31st, which would make the racer eligible to compete in the kid's or individual sprint or team events.


Discounts: Current Alaska Tri Club Members* receive a $5 discount off of individual race fees (discount only valid for new general registrations and does not apply to teams or kids). Visit the Alaska Triathlon Club website to learn more and join. 

Alaska Tri Club membership will be verified prior to bib pick-up.


Onsite Registration: There is no on-site registration.

USAT Membership, One-Day Licenses and Policies

USAT policy on annual membership transfers or extensions

USA Triathlon is a membership-driven organization, that provides services and benefits that support the nationwide multisport community. Each participant that registers for any event that is sanctioned by USAT must purchase a one-day license or membership with USAT.


USAT's Annual Membership includes much more than access to USA Triathlon-sanctioned races. Annual members receive support and resources to take their training to the next level via subscriptions to the quarterly USA Triathlon Magazine and weekly Multisport Zone e-newsletter. In addition, members have access to exclusive discounts on industry-leading products and services from our corporate partners, as well as member content, resources and education opportunities.

For those planning to do just one race a year sanctioned by USAT a one-day license can be purchased at the time of registration. The one-day license is good for the event and that event only.

Youth (18 and under) licenses/memberships are handled a bit differently than adults. Instead of a one-day license option available to adults, Youth are not able to purchase a one-day license; rather USAT grants all Youth an annual membership for the same cost of a one-day license. For these youth a year-long memberships comes with many benefits; the most significant being that their one fee paid allows them to race in as many USAT sanctioned events as they want within that year-long period. For our Youth, in Alaska alone, that is a major benefit as we have many kids/youth triathlons (Gold Nugget Triathlon, Eagle River Triathlon, Why-Not-Tri, Turnagain Training events and more). Parents, if you did not know this already, make sure you use your youth’s membership number every time you register them for an event. You do not need to purchase a separate license/membership (as you may have thought) for each registration.


Youth & Adults. As with all USAT memberships, an integrated registration system (i.e. RunSignUp), is able to determine when your current member will expire. If that membership expires prior to race day, you will be prompted to renew your membership in order to complete your GNT registration.

For any additional questions or more information on becoming a USAT member see the USAT website here.



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.

If the at the time of the in-person event local regulations limit the ability to hold the live event, all racers registered for the in-person event will be converted to the virtual event(s).

Racers who register for the in-person event and decide at a later time to switch to the virtual event may do so directly in the Run SignUp platform. Likewise, racers registered for the virtual event may switch to the in-person event prior to June 3, 2021 if there is space available. Changes after May 15, 2021 will be subject to the price increases effective on that date.
