The Hilo Triathlon Swim is a 1500 meter clockwise triangular loop in the crystal clear waters off James Kealoha Beach Park in Hilo Hawaii (Big Island). The Bike course is an out and back 40km ride along the historical Hamakua coast on the Hawaii Belt Road. The Hilo Triathlon Run course is 10km road run at sea level with spectacular ocean views alongside Wai’olena Beach Park, Leleiwi Beach Park, and Richardson Beach Park. You might even catch a glimpse of some spinner dolphins as you run past our black sand beaches.
Hilo features a delightful mix of eclectic activities and entertainment such as their extensive farmer’s market, downtown shopping, local eateries and the beautiful Hamakua coast. Located on the eastern side of the Big Island of Hawaii, Hilo is nestled in a luscious rainforest environment complete with valleys and waterfalls.
