TriLanai 3Hills, Lanai 50 mile Ultramarathon, Road Bike Ride, OR Running Relays
TriLanai 3Hills offers ultramarathoners, road cyclists, and running relay teams the opportunity to traverse nearly every paved road on Lanai - twice! 3Hills starts and ends at Hulopo'e Beach Park, and features sweeping views of the Lanai's Palawai Basin, Molokai and Maui on the way toward Keomoku. The final hill of the three hills provides views of the cliffs of Lanai. Celebrate with food and refreshments after the event at the beach party for athletes.

The ride/run route will leave from the Hulopo'e Beach Park to Manele Road (Hwy 440). Turn left onto Hulopo'e Drive and up to the steeper construction road. Once you come to the stop sign at the top of the hill, the route will then be on the public highway (440), which runs through the Palawai Basin. At the end of the "first" hill, you must check in at the aid station (remember to check in, as there will be drawings for valuable door prizes at the end of the 3Hills.)
After running through Lanai City, stay on Lanai Avenue heading out of town, past the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele. The route will continue on Keomuku Highway (430). The route will pass the Pines Sporting Clays and go downhill. Again, a reminder that you will be on a public highway that is very narrow and subject to "blind" curves. For your own safety, please use caution going down to Keomoku/Shipwreck.
The Keomoku/Shipwreck turnaround is at the bottom of the road where the pavement ends, with a sign indicating Shipwreck to the left and Keomuku to the right. Turn around at this area and start the climb back up the "second" hill. Once back in town, stop at the aid station to be checked in once again before the ride back down the Kaumalapau Highway.
The Kaumalapau turnaround will be at the end of the road at the loading docks in view of the big white jacks. Turn around at the aid station and head back up the "third" hill to the central aid station to be checked in for the last time. Make your way back to the finish line through the Palawai Basin.
Cyclists will head down the windy twisty highway. Do not attempt to overtake traffic. Runners will head back down the original "first" hill (Construction Road). Cyclists and runners will converge on the Hulopo'e Beach Park finish line and beach party.
