2010 Ultraman Day One

Added: Mon Nov 29 2010

Tina Bischoff's women's Ultraman Hawaii race record 25:45:51 held up against all comers for 21 years. But in 2010, four women broke the mark in dramatic fashion. The first act of the 325-mile, three-day stage triathlon that circumnavigates the Big Island of Hawaii is a 10K swim from Kailua Pier to Keauhou, followed by a 90-mile ride with 7,800 feet of climbing south from Keauhou to Volcanoes National Park.
