Lanikai Triathlon

Twenty Years! Let’s race in Lanikai!

20th Annual Kalapawai Lanikai Triathlon

Sunday, April 2nd, 2023, 6:00am

500 m swim  •  10 mile bike  •  3.5 mile run

Some races touch the heart of a community, and Lanikai is one of them.

This sprint distance race was conceived out of pure love for the sport and the idea that anyone can participate in the exciting world of triathlon. This doable distance allows novice athletes to aim for an athletic multi-sport challenge, and allows experienced athletes an opportunity to test their quick-speed racing abilities.

Through the years, friendships have been built and a feeling of community blossomed. And when a repeat champion of this event experienced tragedy, many embraced the event in an effort to embrace her. Repeat champion, Lectie Altman’s, inspirating story made us pause and re-prioritize for a moment, and gave the race new meaning.

Lanikai Triathlon shines on it’s own as a great event for athletic fun, but it also gives an opportunity for a community to rally around one another and show support and compassion for one another. We are honored to be a part of that creation.

Let’s celebrate 20 years of racing and community in Lanikai.
