2014 welcomes The Breakup Tri into it's third season.
The race was named after Alaska's spring season where all of the ice and snow that accumulates throughout the winter months starts to melt away.
As the ice continues to thaw, the days become longer, temps grow warmer, and the ice over the rivers starts to give way to the flow of the currents of not only the local Chena River, but the surrounding rivers as well. The ice begins to break up into chunks of all different shapes and sizes and floats lazily down the rivers.
The race will consist of a 500 yd. swim, 13.1 mile bike, and 5k run through and around the beautiful University of Alaska Fairbanks campus. For 2014 we are limiting the number of participants to 84 with plans of expanding in the future.
