THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII!

Saturday, DECEMBER 7, 2019

Hapuna Beach, The Big Island of Hawaii, USA

Welcome to Hawaii! No qualifying, no waiting, just first-come first-serve registration for up to 300 people to attend the hardest 1-day triathlon on the Big Island. Alohaman is different from our other two extreme triathlons (Alaska and Ísland) with a warm water tropical swim (76-82°F), but don’t let the warm crystal clear water fool you, the bike and run more than make up for the ease of the swim course. Once done with their swim at Hapuna Beach athletes take to the roads to ride a 112-mile out-and-back course with over 10,000’ of total gain and a top elevation of over 6,500 in the first 35-miles of climbing. After a short decent everyone turns around to climb back up and over the base of Mauna Kea on Saddle Road to head back to the resort. Most will finish the bike around sunset and start their run during one of the most beautiful times of the day. With day turning to night athletes will run uphill under the stars north on the Queen K towards Hawi before turning around and heading back to the Westin for an amazing finish on the lush resort grounds.

COURSE CUTOFFS

RULES

 

Because of the extreme nature of this event on the Big Island of Hawaii, we have to have a lot of strict rules. Please read over them, know them, memorize them. Violation of any of these rules may lead to an immediate disqualification at the discretion of our officials.

 

SPONSORS

 

Sponsors play an important roll in helping events like these to continue for years to come. Without volunteers, sponsors, local support, and registrations, these races would not exist. We work every day to form valuable relationships with local (and national) companies to expand the boundaries of our events, offer more to the athletes, and help these generous sponsors grow their business. We stand behind our sponsors and would never recommend a product to the athletes/public we haven’t had our own positive experiences with. We hope, whenever possible, you join us in giving these great businesses your patronage.
