    General Information

    Ho’omau is a Boutique Event
    What does that mean?  We’re glad you asked!  Due to the unique nature of this spectacular course, things are going to look a bit different than your run-of-the-mill event, in several ways:
    – Participation will be limited.
    When we’re full, we’re full… please be sure to get in right away if you’re planning to join us.
    – All distances will use a time trial start, with 2 athletes starting every 5 seconds.
    Two at a time, so yup… you can still start with your buddy!
    – Fastest athletes will start first.
    Knowing your race pace is going to be crucial come race day.
    The entire shoulder will be coned off for everyone’s safety, but there are a few sections that are no wider than a bike lane, so unfortunately, neither dogs nor strollers will be allowed.
    Everything else will remain the same… finisher medals, cooling towels, free race photos, awards, and those VIEWS!  Holy smokes, you do NOT want to miss this one, as 2024 may or may not return to this same course.

    The above information is only that which is unique to this event.
