The Sourdough Triathlon is a half-Iron distance race held in Chatanika, AK about 45 minutes northeast of Fairbanks at Milepost 33.5 of the Steese Highway. It's a quiet area with minimal traffic and plenty of wide open spaces. The 1.2 mile swim is in a former gravel pit filled by a pristine groundwater stream. The 56 mile bike course is two laps on a quiet, paved two-lane road with the occasional vehicle passing through. The 13.1 mile run course is two laps on the shoulder of this same road. Due to the course layout, this event is very spectator-friendly. Many competitors and their families camp out at the site the night before the race in RVs or tents.
