2021 VIRTUAL EVENT
May 28 – June 6, 2021: Virtual Triathlons and Duathlons
Our motto this year is to Stay Positive, Stay Healthy and Be Active!
We are excited to offer a hybrid event this year with multiple race options to choose from:
Live in-person event on June 6, 2021: 300 yard swim, 20K bike, 5K run
Virtual events May 28 – June 6, 2021: Several race formats to choose from. Do one, two, or all of them if you like!
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL TRIATHLON?
This event is a way for you to swim (or if you do not want to swim you can do the duathlon or form a team for the triathlon), bike and run whenever and wherever it works for you between May 28 and June 6, 2021. You can choose to do any of the event legs indoors or outdoors, or a combination of both. Don’t want to do them all in one day? No problem, you just need to complete all of the legs between the race dates noted above. Complete a sprint, olympic or half, or do the duathlon, or mix it up a bit with a SUP combined with a bike and run. There are so many options to choose from!
This offers us the opportunity for racers who may not be ready to race in person to be part of one of Alaska’s favorite triathlons. Given the limited number of registrations available for the in-person event we want to ensure all who want to race can race. Last year’s virtual ERT was a great success bringing together racers throughout Alaska and across the entire lower 48. It is a great opportunity for friends from near and far challenge each other individually or on a team. The more the merrier!
REGISTRATION WILL TAKE PLACE IN TWO PHASES
Phase 1 -> February 1 - 14, 2021: Registration for deferred racers and racers who participated in the 2020 ERT.
Phase 2 -> February 21 - June 2, 2021: General registration for in-person and virtual events.

CAN PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF ALASKA PARTICIPATE?
Absolutely, the more the merrier! Any US residents participating in an US state can register for the event. Challenge your friends and family near and far to join. 2020 brought racers from 12 states, wonder how many states will be represented this year. Can we hit 50?
