The Swim course is in the beautiful waters of the Pacific Ocean at Ala Moana Beach Park. It’s a single loop course that takes you along the shore which offers a great location for spectator viewing. The swim course is monitored by life guards, water jets and rescue skis.
The Bike Course will be held on the Makai (ocean) side of Ala Mona Blvd from Ala Moana Beach Park, Ewa bound, to Nimitz under the viaduct. The bikes will make a 180 U-turn under the viaduct at Lagoon Drive and then back onto Nimitz and Ala Moana Blvd, to Ala Moana Beach Park and Atkinson Drive.
1. OLYMPIC DISTANCE / LONG COURSE athletes will do TWO (2) Loops with the turn at Atkinson Drive and Ala Moana Beach Road.
2. SPRINT DISTANCE / SHORT COURSE athletes only do ONE (1) Loop.
The run course is beautiful, fast, exciting, closed to vehicle traffic and very spectator friendly. You’ll be running inside Ala Moana Beach Park which is one of Honolulu’s favorite waterfront parks. The run begins at the Transition Area – Magic Island. You make your way through the park to the WEST entrance. Just before that entrance, you will take a RIGHT on to a short path. Once you get to the first bridge, you will make a RIGHT and cross over, running on the inside path heading towards the EAST entrance. Just prior to crossing over the next bridge, take a RIGHT heading towards Magic Island. At the beach road, take a LEFT and run around the lagoon. Once you are heading back towards the bridge you will make a short turn right then left onto the outside path which is parallel to Ala Moana. At the end of this path, you will cross the first bridge to begin your second loop making a LEFT. Cross the “Arch” bridge at the end of this path, make a LEFT re-joining the outside path. At the end of the path re-join the beach road heading back towards Magic Island and the finish line. You pass the transition area and make a loop around Magic Island and the beautiful Lagoons heading towards the finish line. Study the maps and course. Signs, Coning, and Course Marshals will be provided. There are 6 aid stations on this course. It is your responsibility to know the course.
