The last day to register for the Earth Day Triathlon is Thursday.

The triathlon, a Kodiak staple since 1985, is comprised of a 1-kilometer swim at the Kodiak Community Pool (22 laps), a 5-kilometer run and a 20-kilometer bike ride. The race begins at 10 a.m.

Run begins and ends at the pool, while the bike ride starts at the pool and goes to Pillar Creek and finishes at Woody Way Field.

Last year, Sawyer Olson, 14, became the youngest overall individual champion with a time of 1 hour, 22 minutes, 54 seconds.

Sara Bennion held off Meg Inokuma to win last year’s ladies races in 1:28:54. Inowkuma, after biking past the Pillar Creek turnaround, finished in 1:29:09.

Nicholas Lincoln, Bryan Rivera and Heather Lewis won the team title in 1:21:41.

The race was originally scheduled to take place last week, but race organizer pushed it back a week because of all the events last week in Kodiak.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a sunny 54-degree day for Saturday.

“It was a good decision,” said race organizer Corey Gronn. “The athletes are going to enjoy the predicted forecast.”

Applications can be picked up at the Kodiak Community Pool and dropped off at 58 Degrees North by 5 p.m. Thursday.

People can compete individual or in a team of three.
