Lanikai Triathlon....hands down, the BEST triathlon/race on the island. Raul, Hina and the folks at BOCA do such a great job with this event...the support, police escorts, volunteers, organizers, sponsors (BOCA Hawaii, Jamba Juice, JACO, Planet Sun), treats and entertainment after the race, they make this a race worth putting on your list that's for sure! This is the third year I've raced Lanikai and third time's a charm!
Typically there hasn't been great weather for this race...we are getting toward the end of our rainy/wet winter season here so we have to put up with a little bit of rain and cooler weather for a few months....two years ago it was pouring rain, last year ended up being a nice day, that started out a bit soggy and this year the water had a bit of chop, which made for some more difficult ocean swimming conditions (yay!) and the winds were whipping. Weather makes no difference, this is still a top-notch event! Getting to swim in the ocean, ride along the coast (for parts) and run through a beautiful loop on the Windward side of the island always makes for a great time!

Thanks BOCA Hawaii, Jamab Juice, JACO and Planet Sun Hawaii for putting on such a great event! What a way to end the morning, with great friends at the beach!
