ButteAthlon

Do you love wide open spaces and clean country air? What about a good challenge? Join us for the annual 'ButteAthlon' in the Butte area of Palmer. This triathlon starts at Pyrah's Pioneer Peak Farm and takes in the breathtaking views of Pioneer Peak, Knik Glacier, open farmlands and a complete panoramic of the Mat-Su Valley. There is nothing traditional about this triathlon as it includes a run/climb/bike in one of the most scenic areas of the valley. Run from Pyrah's farm to the Butte for an exciting climb with astounding views at the top. Climbing begins on one side with a groomed stair-stepped trail to the top and descends the other boasting a more rugged terrain. Run back to the farm where the bike portion of the race begins with not one, but two turns around Bodenburg Loop for a finish at Pyrah's Pioneer Peak Farm.
