Jesse will be leaving for Hawaii for this Triathlon Aug 20th 2009
This will be a sprint distance triathlon. It will consist of a 700m swim, a 12 mile road bike, and a 5k run. Swim: The swim course is a 700m course in the beautiful clear waters of the Waikiki Beach area of Honolulu. The start is on a public beach located near KalaKala and North. The course is a rectangle with one meter high buoys at the turns. At the end of the loop there is a short beach run before swimmers enter into the transition area.
Expected swim conditions: Warm, flat water. Any significant swell, surf or chop is unlikely.
Bike: Triathletes yearning for wide open spaces will like this bike course. Waikiki’s roads are new and wide. Plans call for 2 full lanes to available to the race on all roads. Traffic will be closely restricted.
The roads are flat and wide with the exception of a gentle 2K climb up to Diamond Head Crater Park are the exceptions. These are wide roads that cut through the back end of Waikiki.
Run: The run course is pancake flat with stunning view of the honolulu harbor and waikiki coastline. It will be a distance of 5k and expected to be a beautiful run for the athlete.
