Aukeman Race Update May 13, 2020: The Aukeman board as made the very difficult decision to cancel Aukeman 2020. In light of COVID-19, we do not see a likely path forward that would allow us to run this race in a safe manner. We wish you a safe, happy, and healthy summer and still hope to see you swimming, biking, and running in the community! You might even see some of us swimming, biking, and running on the Aukeman course on the morning of August 1st.
We look forward to bringing you another great race on August 7, 2021!! Please return back here in February 2021 to register.

The Aukeman triathlon starts in the waters of Auke Lake, an incredibly scenic spot in Juneau, Alaska surrounded by mountains. The swim course is a single, well-marked loop. Participants emerge from the lake, run up to transition at the University of Alaska Southeast campus and then are off on the bike course — either to the Mendenhall Glacier (for the sprint course) or ‘out the road’ (for the olympic course). The bike course is moderately flat and out-and-back. Transition 2 is in the same location and then participants will head out on the run course which is mixed trail and pavement.
