Ironman Passes Through Waikoloa Village

Posted by & filed under Ironman, Kona Lifestyle, South Kohala, Waikoloa.

South Kohala residents and resort guests lined Queen Kaahumanu highway last Saturday to cheer on Ironman triathletes on the second leg of the event — a bike race from Kona to Hawi and back, 112 miles. This, after completing the 2.4 mile swim in Kailua Bay and then followed by a hot 26.2 marathon all to be completed by midnight, qualifies as an official finish.
