2022 Eagle River Triathlon

This is a message we never thought we would be posting! It is with heavy hearts that we have come to the difficult decision to cancel the 2022 Eagle River Triathlon. 
 
Our intentions are to only ‘pause’ the event for 2022 in hopes we will be back in full-fashion next year. The impact the pandemic has had on the event over the past two years has made the financial viability of presenting this year’s event very challenging. This is the time in planning for the event when larger purchases are made (swag, t-shirts, supplies, etc.). With less than two months to event day, the registration numbers are too low to push forward with the event and be able to provide the racer experience the Eagle River Tri is known for. Despite the generous support of our sponsors, and the many racers who have already registered, the trends we are seeing in registrations are not strong enough to give us confidence we can meet the minimum numbers needed for this year. 
 
If you already registered for the 2022 ERT, you will be receiving your registration refund (including processing fees) back to your original form of payment within the next 3-4 weeks. 

Other race fees will be handled as follows:

USAT Fees
If you paid for a USAT one-day license, those funds are processed directly to USAT through RunSignUp’s integrated registration system. Unfortunately, USAT is not providing refunds of these one-day license fees; however you are able to request USAT to transfer your one-day license to another USAT sanctioned event. Please email service@usatriathlon.org directly to request the transferring of you one-day license to another USAT event.
If you purchased a USAT event license for a youth racer, this license is a year-long membership and can be used at all USAT sanctioned events in Alaska and throughout the U.S. (see below for some great upcoming local races, some of which are USAT sanctioned).

ABATE of Alaska Donations
If you donated to ABATE of Alaska, and would like a refund please email us at info@eaglerivertri.com. If you would still like your donation to go to ABATE for all they have done to support the Eagle River Triathlon and other community events we would be glad to send it on to them, on your behalf. Thank you!

Supporting other local events
We are fortunate to have so many triathlons and running events coming up this summer right in our own backyard, many of which are not sold out yet. We encourage you to register for these great events:

Gold Nugget Triathlon – May 15, 2022 (women’s only event, registration closes 4/15/22)
Alaska Triathlon Club races
Hammerman Triathlon – July 9, 2022
Moose Nugget Triathlon – July 31, 2022
Why-Not-Tri – June 11, 2022 – this is a great triathlon in Wasilla. Although it is not USAT sanctioned, it’s a well-known, fun event. 
Turnagain Training – multiple youth programs as well as adult triathlons and duathlons. Event dates vary.
There are also many great running events put on by Eagle River Tri’s long-time sponsor, Skinny Raven Sports. 
 
Eagle River Triathlon was started by Mark Ramp in 1993. Since that year, the event has only seen two years that the race was not held. With this being the third year, we hope this is just a pause as well. We will be working with others to continue this great event in future years. It has been a favorite by many over the years and it has certainly been one of ours. 
 
Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see your name on the roster(s) of some of the other wonderful events around town this summer!

Thanks too to our tireless ERT Race Committee. Many have been with us for years. All of them have served with you, the racer, as their top priority. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
