_The 2022 Breakup Triathlon:
The race was named after Alaska's spring when the ice and snow accumulated over the winter months start to melt away. As the ice thaws, the days become longer, temperatures grow warmer, and ice over the rivers begins to give way to the currents of the Chena River and surrounding rivers. The ice breaks up into chunks of all different shapes and sizes and floats lazily downstream.
This is the first sprint triathlon of the season for Fairbanks, Alaska and the only sprint triathlon within a 250 mile radius in the month of May. The Breakup Tri offers a unique opportunity to give the sport of triathlon a try without being intimidated or overwhelmed by the number of participants. The race will consist of a 500 yard swim, 13.1 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run through and around the beautiful University of Alaska Fairbanks campus. There is a 99-participant limit and it sells out every year, so be sure to register early to ensure a spot.
The mission of The Breakup Tri is to introduce the sport of triathlon to those who are looking for a new challenge, a new way to lose weight, cross training, or to see what the sport is all about. Another incentive for the Breakup Tri is that it doesn't include an open water swim which deters some people from ever entering a triathlon.
