The Course Part III: Run

By February 13, 2014 Running, Training One Comment

The Lavaman Waikoloa run is a 10 kilometer run that is one of triathlons most scenic. The run starts with a lava field run, then on fast street sections and then a tour through the Hilton Waikoloa Village resort grounds. The run finishes with epic one mile single track beach trail to the sandy beach finish line.

  • Distance: 10K (6.2 miles)

Cheers to training at 5,280 feet!

This should be my strongest event, since I’m the most rehearsed on the run. But, as of late, my knees and IT bands have been giving me issues. I will be working on getting them healthy so I can finish strong on the beach!!!

    Chris- Just reading about this crazy cool event in Kona!! Excited for you and the experience you will have. Beyond that of course is the impact on lives the cause you are doing the race for will have. I just came back from Maui and I can tell you the weather is VERY nice right now. Might be a bit windy at times, but should be wonderful triathlon weather!! Cheers friend!
