The Alohaman run returns south until getting to the road that leads to Waimea. This is where the climbing begins, and will continue for the next 10 miles, gaining over 2000 feet over that distance. Once at the top, the run returns back down from Waimea and returns to Hapuna to the finish area.
It’s unlikely you’ll be sharing any roads with athletes training for Saturday’s Ironman World Championship. While some might know about these alternate training routes, and may possibly have even biked or run on them during a training camp, those who join us on Tuesday will likely experience unencumbered roads and a variation in terrain and weather conditions few others will cover.
We’ll be sharing sights and sounds from this Aloha Challenge starting at 11:00AM PST on Slowtwitch's Facebook page
and will go Live and post some entertaining videos too. If you like what you see and want to give it a go yourself, you can join us during any leg of the adventure.
If you’re currently reading this back on the mainland, and want to take up this challenge yourself, Alohaman Extreme Triathlon race date is set for December 7th, 2019. With registration opening this Saturday and a field size limited to 250 athletes, consider this your warning not to delay in saving your spot for a date with the Big Island's newest race.
