Description

Come take part in a truly unique and Alaskan event!  This event is both a fundraiser and a memorial event. Funds raised from this event will go to a family with a child currently receiving treatment for cancer.  Our 2020 recipient is Nic Nelson.  There is more about Nic on our website and on his facebook page. The event this year will be a virtual race due to COVID-19.  All who race just need to complete the distances below (the distances from our traditional event) on a single day between June 27th (our original race date) and July 27th.

Distances:
Swim: 800 meters (or .5 mile) 
Bike: 11 miles 
Run: 4 mile

You will get a wealth of information and details about the event in the confirmation email when you register.  However, here are a few tidbits  ...

  • It's FREE!
  • You can do the traditional course and earn extra swag or do it simply from your home!
  • If the open water swim has kept you from doing this event, you can do a substitution activity!
  • If the mountain biking was too technical for your liking, you can do a road ride or one indoors!
  • If you would rather run somewhere else than on the trails at Kepler Bradley, you can run ANYWHERE (including on your treadmill, if that is your thing)!
  • You can still compete as an individual or in a team!

But the main reason to do it: Nic.

What is a virtual race?  A virtual race is a race that can be done from any location you choose. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  You submit your times to a Google form (you will be sent the link when you register).  We do have hoodies for everyone who registered before April 1st ; we have hoodies for purchase if you register after April 1st.

 
When: Complete all three events in any order on a single day from June 27th (our original race day) to July 27th.

Other details:

  • Obey any COVID related or area related restrictions
  • Let anyone you think might be interested in the event know about it - people can complete in this from anywhere in the world!
  • Use the hashtag #littleatri in your social media accounts to let others know how they can stay active and healthy while also helping out a family in need; keep the community spirit alive even though we are virtual this year!
  • Transition times will not be counted (so feel free to go out for a 3-martini lunch between disciplines … but maybe skip the martinis)
  • You may compete as an individual or as a team
  • You may submit multiple times if you want to better your time throughout the month
  • There will be a place in the Google form for notes on your route if you want to add details about your race or experience
  • As pools will most likely not be open in June, you may do an alternative activity (basically, a physically equivalent activity of your choice for 20 minutes) or grab a buddy and swim outside (appropriately distanced, of course)
  • The bike may be done on the road, on trails, or indoors
  • The run, similarly, may be done on the road, on trails, or indoors

There will be more information about the event in the confirmation email that you receive after you sign up.

Thanks for your support and in bringing our community together once again for Nic.

I am looking forward to being able to do the race for the first time myself!  Please join me!

All my best,

J.T.
