Whether or not you're suiting up for the Lavaman Triathlon on Sunday March 30th, head down to the Waikoloa Beach Marriott and cheer on your friends and neighbors, who’ll be swimming 1500 meters in Anaeho'omalu Bay (or “A” Bay), biking 40 kilometers on a segment of the Ironman World Champion course, and running 10 kilometers over a lava field and through the Hilton Waikoloa Village resort grounds. The run finishes with an epic one-mile single track beach trail to the sandy finish line. 

Don't miss the Lavaman Family, Health, Sports & Fitness Expo at The Hilton Waikoloa Village. It's open 10am - 5pm on Friday 3/28 and Saturday 3/29. And after the race on the 30th stay for the live music, food, and vendors.
