DISCOVER BIG ISLAND FESTIVITIES
AND TAKE PART IN THE FUN
Ironman World Championship
Oct 14, 2023 – South Kona
This is an annual world championship competition that takes place along the northwest coast of the Big Island. The triathlon course takes a large amount of stamina to complete, as there is a wide variance in the terrain, elevation, weather and course conditions.
Many of our homes have yearly reservations made by athletes participating in this impressive event. This provides competitors a chance to train on the course before the big day!
