General Registration Waitlist Now Open!

Due to an overwhelming demand we have decided to open a waitlist. We are in the process of figuring out when/if we can accommodate those still wanting to get in and will reach out to those on the waitlist when/if anything opens up. We are not adding more people to the event, rather exploring the possibility of offering those that wish to cancel their registration (without insurance or a covered reason) a partial refund which would then open their spot for the next person on the waitlist wanting to event. This is not for certain. There is not guarantee we will offer partial refunds and no guarantee anyone on the waitlist will be allowed to register, we are simply exploring the possibility. We will let everyone know soon. In the meantime if you want to event and aren't signed up please signup for the waitlist, just in case, you never know!

Beyond Your Dreams, Within Your Reach. ~Alaska State Slogan

Seward, Alaska, (May 16, 2016) Onurmark Productions ( onurmark.net ), specializing in the production of running and multisport events, today announced that they will produce the Inaugural Alaskaman™ Extreme Triathlon, from Seward to Girdwood, Alaska, on Saturday, July 15, 2017. This extreme triathlon, the first of it’s kind in North America, begins with a 2.4mile swim in the frigid waters (averaging 55°F) of Resurrection Bay leading athletes to a 112mile bike ride north through mountainous passageways (gain of 4,000’) on the awe-inspiring Seward Highway, and ending at Bird Creek (12miles west of Girdwood). The final leg, the 26.2mile marathon run, takes athletes along the Bird Creek Hike/Bike Trail back east towards Girdwood and up grueling Mt. Alyeska (4,000’ total gain in the last 6miles) to the finish, where breathtaking views await.

When asked, Onurmark founder and race director Aaron Palaian stated, “Onurmark Productions is all about hosting quality, well organized, challenging events. Events that push the limit of the human spirit and each individual’s physical ability to complete them in an environment that demands respect for nature and their fellow competitors. We believe that there’s no better place to do that in North America than Alaska. With it’s cold, clean, crisp water, gorgeous views, and challenging terrain, Seward, Girdwood, and Mt. Alyeska make for an extremely challenging yet rewarding race experience that will be cherished and remembered by these athletes for the rest of their lives.”

All participants must provide their own support crew, made up of at least one person. Everyone is also urged to read through the online event guide and website prior to registering. All Alaskaman™ Extreme Triathlon details are currently online at akxtri.com , where worldwide online registration will open on Sunday, July 17, 2016 at 3:00pm CST. The event is limited to only 300 spots and is expected to fill very quickly, with no wait list.
