The island’s endurance sport junkies get a chance to compete on Saturday with the return of Kodiak’s Earth Day Duathlon/Triathlon. 

The race, which was canceled last year because of the pandemic, begins at 9 a.m. at the Kodiak Community Swimming Pool. This is the 35th showing of the event that is organized by the city’s parks and recreation department. 

The triathlon is comprised of a 1-kilometer swim at the pool (22 laps), a 5K run and a 20K bike ride.

The duathlon features a 20K bike ride sandwiched between 5K runs. 

Registration fee is $20 for an individual and $60 for a team.

Lindsey Glenn is the women’s defending triathlon champion, winning the 2019 race in 1:32:52. 

Cassie Keplinger won the 2019 Duathlon in 1:51:32.
