Swimmers be prepared to challenge yourself with Beach Runs! Race will start on the beautiful white sands of Hapuna Beach and will follow a 2 loop format each loop separated by a beach run. In true XTERRA format swimmers will exit the water from the 1st loop for a sprint on the beach to plunge back into the ocean for the 2nd loop. Complete the swim to face the trail hill climb up to Transition at Kohala Garden, Hapuna Beach Resort.
The Bike Course is set as 2 five mile off road trail loops in the Hills above Hapuna Beach. Rocks, Sand, Lava and KIAWE awaits. Thorn proof tires are a must if you want to get through the bike course without testing your tire changing skills. The Bike Course is not open to the public and we will announce designated ride days scheduled for August. Anyone caught riding the course without permission will be subject to Disqualification from XTERRA Hawai’i Island.
Scenic and Brutal. The 3.1 Trail Run will not disappoint. More Rocks, Sand, Lava and Kiawe. Plus the amazing energy of the Ocean guiding your way. The last steep climb from the Beach to Kohala Gardens will have you earning a nice cold beer or two at the Post Race celebration!
Important Note: Athletes are prohibited from biking and/or running on the bike course and run course trails prior to Race Day. Doing so will result in race disqualification.
