We all know the history of endurance sports on the islands of Hawaii, it only makes sense for Powerman Hawaii to create it\'s own history, memories and legends. Kailua Kona\'s Kealakehe High School is the perfect setting. It sits about a mile above the coast overlooking downtown Kona, dolphins and whales swimming by and on a clear day the island of Maui off the coast.
The high schools track stadium will play host as friends family and spectators fill the stands as the athletes enter the stadium to watch a 300m battle between the athletes as they hit the track for the final run to the finish.
The epic bike and run courses will take the athletes on a challenging run above the high school and bike course below the high school that will feature a 800m climb each lap on the multi-loop course.
Marathon runners, endurance athletes, triathletes, bikers, runners - Anyone Can Do the DU!

It all stays on the big island! We have created this unique event not only to bring World Class racing in a low impact, spectator friendly format to Kona but to build something the entire island can be proud of. In order to do that it must start with the Keiki, the kids. Our vision was to have high schools as the foundation and build from there. In this specific case for this event Kealakehe high school Waveriders is the venue. We will involved every possible club, class and group at the high school to benefit directly from this event. From the photography to the concessions to the art department and so on. Your entry is going to directly impact programs, students, clubs and teams within the school. Our goal is to expand this to other schools creating an Ohana of races not only for veterans, elites, locals of all ages, and sizes but kids from all over.
The event could not happen without Doug Henbest, huge Mahalo!
