New for 2015 – we’ve added a Half-Marathon to the Hula Girl run/walks! After the popularity of the Hula Girl 5K & 10K that were added to the Wahine All Women’s event in 2014, a Hula Girl Half was an obvious addition!
Come be part of the excitement and “Aloha” of this Hawaiian-themed, All Women’s multisport event at Blue Lake Park! The Hula Girl courses will “flow” along Marine Drive – a very flat/”no waves” course that is fast with good potential for PR! Fun for “Girls” of all ages!
There will be live music during the Wahine after-race party – be sure to come in your favorite Hula Skirt or Lei necklace or with a plumeria blossom tucked behind your ear – tutus and costumes encouraged! We’ll even have Sweet Spot Skirts in the expo with colorful, flirty, sports skirts available for sale to add to your island groove!
Hula Kids Triathlon
Most kids love to swim, bike and run – so we say, why not give them a chance to put it all together in one fun and fantastic race! Parents can introduce their kids to the sport of triathlon in the perfect venue for the young ‘uns to “try a tri” – what better way for them to actually be part of the multisport action during the event. There’s nothing more fun and exciting than to see happy, proud, young faces crossing the finish line – you might just see a future superstar triathlete blossoming into the sport!
Race fee includes commemorative tech shirt & finisher medal, ChampionChip Timing, awards and prizes, beer (for those 21 and older), hawaiian food, and music. Kid’s will receive a T-shirt and finisher medal. *High school students or participants 18 years & younger may deduct $10 from the entry fee for any adult races (excludes Hula Kids Tri).

Race Results / Timing:

If you own your own Chip, please provide your seven-digit Chip code at the time you register. Results will be posted on www.aasportsltd.com
Archived race results for Wahine Tri/Du can be found HERE
Will be presented to the Overall Female champions and Overall Masters Female champions (Overall Female, and Masters Female will be removed from the individual age division awards). Awards will also be presented to the 1st thru 3rd place finishers in each individual age division, as well as the Open & Masters Athena divisions. The 1st and 2nd place teams in each relay division will also receive awards.
Individual: 15 & Under; 16-19; 20-24; …; 70 & over. Also optional division Athena’s (women 150 lbs & over) in Open (39 & under) and Masters (40 & over) divisions.
Triathlon Relay Teams: Top three overall (no combined age divisions)
Friends and Family Division: A non-competitive division created for the sole purpose of allowing participants of different ages to swim in the same wave. For example, this allows mothers/daughters, girlfriends, siblings, etc. to enjoy the triathlon together and to help one another through the swim leg of the event. When participants fail to swim in their correct wave, their split times and finish time are compromised. So, if you choose to participate out of your wave choose this division to uphold the integrity of your results and the overall results of the event.
Duathlon Relay Teams: Top Three Overall (no combined age divisions).
NOTE: Awards Ceremony will commence at the conclusion of the event and winners must pick up their awards. Awards will not be mailed.
ON-SITE MECHANICAL/BIKE SUPPORT
Athletes Lounge will be at the race site to provide bike support, repairs, parts, and accessories.
