Celebrating a Successful Chilkat Challenge Triathlon
Alaska Clean Water Advocacy hosted the third Annual Chilkat Challenge Triathlon last weekend to raise awareness about the importance of preserving the Chilkat River. Racers from Alaska, Canada, Washington, and Colorado paddled 8.5 miles down the Chilkat River, rode bikes 21 miles down the Haines Highway, and ran 9.5 miles alongside the river to finish the race in Chilkat State Park. Great prizes from Patagonia, REI, and many local and regional outfitters, and a wonderful post-race dinner and party, made for a great time.
