Race Director Application Process


The Alaska Women’s Gold Nugget Triathlon is a not-for-profit organization that annually stages an all-women’s triathlon that includes a 400-yard swim, 12-mile bike and 3.25-mile run. The Gold Nugget Triathlon Board of Directors believes that our women’s triathlon is more than just a one-day event. Women and girls train for this event year-round and many sign up as a way of kick-starting a brand-new training and fitness regime. They often find this to be a life changing experience. Mothers and daughters train for this event together, as do groups of friends and colleagues.
