Get Ready for the Second Annual Turtle Bay Biathlon

Posted on Thu, 2015/07/30 - 11:29am by Jeff Mull

The Turtle Bay biathlon is just around the corner. Whether you’re an avid multisport athlete or just looking to get some exercise surrounded by some of the most gorgeous scenery in Hawaii, this is the biathlon for you. The race, which takes place over Labor Day weekend on September 6, will feature both a long and short-course track.

As far as the physical course is concerned, the race will see competitors begin the swim portion at one of two locations, depending on whether they choose the short or long course. Those swimming in the long course will hit the water in front of Ola’s and will make their way around Kulima point before finishing the 1800 meter swim.

The short course begins adjacent to the famed Pool Bar reef at Turtle Bay and is mapped out to be 1000 meters.

The shorter course features a 5K run that heads west toward Kawela Bay and carries runners through a shaded jungle trail, open grass field, and of course on the beach. The longer course, which will be a 10k, is still being mapped out.

If this sounds like the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning—and come on, who wouldn’t feel great about completing this race?—you can sign up by clicking right over here.
