Summer 2021 Group Training at Hawaii Triathlon Center (updated 7/7/2021)

 

This is an experiment and we’re asking everyone to be patient. We are making this up as we go. The primary objective is to maintain social distance and adhere to local government restrictions.  Covid is still a concern. We will meet outside and will not require masks in that setting, but please be considerate if not feeling well and stay home. You are also encouraged to wear a mask if that is your preference and we ask that everyone please respect each individual's preferences. . All meetings will be outdoors in large open spaces. Benefits include discounts at Hawaii Triathlon Center shop. We sure are hoping to put on some races, entry discounts will be available for those too.

Reserve your spot by emailing Ben@hitricenter.com or calling the shop at 808-333-1151.
