Lavaman Keauhou starts at 7 a.m. (Aug. 29)

The 2nd annual Lavaman Keauhou begins at 7 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 29 at Keauhou Bay.

Some 250 triathletes are expected to participate in the Olympic-distance triathlon, which includes a 0.9-mile (1.5K) swim, a 24.8-mile (40K) bicycle ride and a 6.2-mile (10K) run that ends at Keauhou Beach Resort.

Shuttle: The Keauhou Trolley will run 5:30- 9 a.m. between Keauhou Beach Resort & Keauhou Bay so athletes, volunteers and spectators can park at Keauhou Beach Resort & be shuttled to the Swim Start and then back to T-2 and the Finish Line.

Lavaman Keauhou will start with a single lap 1.5K swim in the sparkling blue waters of Keauhou Bay.

Upon transitioning to the bikes on the south side of the bay, athletes will enjoy a scenic single loop 40K bike course taking them up the challenging Kamehameha III Road to Kuakini Highway and the famed Queen Kaahumanu Highway, proceeding north to the turnaround at the entrance to the Natural Energy Lab (OTEC).

Once back in town, riders will race along the famed Alii Drive, finishing at the Outrigger Keauhou Beach resort where they will transition to the run.

The 10K run will traverse through the historic grounds of the Keauhou Resort, past ancient battlefields with sweeping ocean views and within the Kona Country Club golf course, leading to the finish at the Outrigger Keauhou Beach Resort and the beach party for which Lavaman has become known.
