hawaii, the big island
SATURDAY, DEC 7, 2019
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.
