The Second Annual Chilkat Challenge Triathlon


The CHILKAT CHALLENGE is an annual, 35-mile paddle/cycle/run along Southeast Alaska’s Chilkat River, through the heart of the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve.

Beginning at Mosquito Lake ~30 miles north of Haines, Alaska, paddlers race down the Chilkat River, past the Tlingit Village of Klukwan and through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, home to the world’s largest congregation of bald eagles. After an 8-mile paddle (canoe or kayak) racers  swap their boats for bikes and cycle 20 miles alongside the Chilkat River on the Haines Highway. The final leg is a 8-mile run along the Chilkat River from Haines to Letnikof Cove. From Mosquito Lake State Park to Letnikof Cove racers are surrounded by snow-capped mountains and glaciers, giant forests of spruce, hemlock, and cottonwood trees, bald eagles, and maybe even a bull moose or mama grizzly bear!

The CHILKAT CHALLENGE is destined to become one of the world’s great races but it will be more than just fun and a test of skill, strength, and stamina in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. ACWA is sponsoring the CHILKAT CHALLENGE to raise awareness of the importance of protecting the Chilkat River and the fish, eagles, bears, and people of the Chilkat Valley who have depended on the Chilkat River’s wild salmon runs for more than a thousand years.

The CHILKAT CHALLENGE is a great event, for a great cause. Please contact us through this race website if you would like to help sponsor the race with financial support or make a donation of outdoor gear and other prizes.
