DISCOVER BIG ISLAND FESTIVITIES
AND TAKE PART IN THE FUN
Ironman 70.3 Hawaii
Jun 5, 2021 – Kohala Coast
The Ironman 70.3, also known as the Half Ironman, is an annual world championship competition that takes place along the northwest coast of the Big Island. The 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, as they are situated within the course’s route. This provides competitors a chance to train on the course before the big day!
Below are annual events that are cancelled in 2021, but are expected to resume in 2022. Events will be marked as TBA until official 2022 dates are released.
