The IRONMAN team appreciates your support and loyalty while we have worked to provide you with world-class events at top destinations. When it was first announced, Juneau, Alaska quickly jumped towards the top of bucket list races. While we faced some weather challenges for the first-year event, the event was still magical. The team immediately went to work to further improve the experience for future iterations. Despite having a wonderful host community, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue IRONMAN Alaska.
We would like to thank our athletes, volunteers, and local partners, the City of Juneau, Travel Juneau, the University of Alaska Southeast, the local Tlingit people and the entire Juneau community. Not only did Alaskans come out to take on the inaugural race, but local culture and community was an important aspect in the creation of and huge race day support for IRONMAN Alaska. We would also like to thank all of our sponsors for their partnership in helping to ensure race experiences lived up to the destination.
