THE LAST FRONTIER
Saturday, June 29, 2019
Alaskaman was founded in 2017 by extreme triathlete and full time race director Aaron Palaian. After taking part in both Norseman and Celtman Xtris in Europe, Aaron felt that it was a shame nothing along the lines of an extreme triathlon existed in the states. At the Norseman briefing in 2015 it was mentioned that the current position of that briefing was at the same latitude as Anchorage, Alaska. That’s when the lightbulb came on and the idea of Alaskaman was born. After two years of work Alaskaman was finally approved and sold out in just 3-days, over a year in advance.
People from all over the World, come to Alaska to experience the “Last Frontier.” Alaska is a wild and untamed. The only thing rivaling the challenge of this event is the beauty you will encounter while on your journey. From the cold and invigorating waters of Seward’s Resurrection Bay, to the big climbs and larger-than-life views of the Seward Highway, all the way to the legendary mountain run on Mt. Alyeska, this event will test the truth depth of the human spirit. Are you brave enough to toe the line?
