2023 Lavaman Triathlon

69-450 Waikoloa Beach Dr, Waikoloa Village, HI 96738, USA



Now in its 25th year, Lavaman is a Premier Olympic Distance Triathlon north of Kailua Kona at the Waikoloa Beach Resort.  It is recognized as one of the most popular short distance races in the world!  It is a great place to visit and a beautiful venue to race.  Bring your family to enjoy a fun vacation on the Big Island.  

Whether an individual athlete or a team your 1.5K swim is in the warm waters of Anaeho’omalu Bay.  You then will grab you bike and ride the 40K course out and back along the Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway, a scenic and mostly flat & sometimes windy course that will challenge your biking skills. Once you are back in the Transition Zone you will start your 10K run taking you through the Waikoloa Beach Resort and around the Dolphin Ponds of the Hilton Waikoloa Village.  The run course will have plenty of Aid Stations to keep you energized as you run on a combination of roads, trails and a sandy beach to the spectacular finish line! 

And then the fun begins…the After Party! Lavaman has been called, “The Best party in Triathlon”! Pending possible COVID modifications, we hope to keep that reputation rolling! Great food from our sponsors, Lava Lava Beach Club and the Hilton Waikoloa Village, awesome Big Island beer provided by Kona Brewing Co, and great entertainment, all on the beautiful beach at Anaeho’omalu Bay.

So, plan a trip to the Big Island and the next Lavaman Triathlon on March 26, 2023. Come for the Race and stay for the Aloha.
