About This Activity

ButteAthlon

Do you love wide open spaces and cleancountry air? What about a good challenge? Join us for the annual 'ButteAthlon' in the Butte area of Palmer, Alaska. 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. Premium bags for each participant. Registration is limited.

 

Farm Fun Run

Do you love the idea of a race but maybe a triathlon is a little out of reach for you this year? Don't sweat it (well, maybe just a tiny bit) because we have just the activity for you! Come join us at Pyrah's Pioneer Peak Farm for a 5K Farm Fun Run (or walk, or stroll). Adventurers of all ages can enjoy this full scale tour of our farm while getting a little exercise too. We promise the views won't disappoint. A portion of the proceeds will fund educational scholarships for Mat-Su Valley graduating High School Seniors.  *Come prepared for all weather conditions. Children and all-terrain strollers are welcome; however, standard 'city slicker' strollers may have a hard time on farm terrain.*
