If you are here in Kona during the 2019 Ironman World Championship, then you will need to be up early to catch the start of the swim. The event kicks off in Kailua Bay, with the pro men’s division starting first at 6:25 am and the pro women’s starting at 6:30. Then, in a change from previous years, the age group starts will roll out in waves every 5 minutes from 6:55 am — 7:30 am. The pro men will finish swimming in around 48–55 minutes and proceed to the bike race.
The bike race immediately follows the swim and competitors leave directly from the Kailua Pier transition area, heading up Palani Road, looping around to Makala Blvd and the Kuakini Hwy then racing along the closed Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway to Hawi on the northern tip of Hawaii and back. If you want to head up to the turnaround point you would want to take the upper Mamalahoa HWY 190 to Waimea, then take the 250 cut across that takes you over Kohala mountain into Hawi.
The run starts from the Kailua Pier transition point and heads up Palani Rd, turning south on the Kuakini Hwy until Hualālai Rd, then continues onto Ali’i Dr for a turn around retracing its path back to the Queen K Hwy for the long stretch up to the airport. The racers will turn around at NELHA and then make for the home stretch back along the Queen K Hwy and the hard-earned finish line on Ali’i Drive.
