You might have noticed our new virtual triathlon that went live today: Hawaii From Home. It’s something we’ve been working on for a while—ever since we started missing races too!—so I wanted to make sure you all knew what we’re doing and to invite all the Triathlete readers to participate.
A lot of us had big plans this fall: maybe a fall marathon, maybe our first triathlon, maybe targeting a PR. I was going to race Ironman Chattanooga. I’ve heard from a lot of readers who were going to do their first full iron-distance race this year, but now have to postpone. Maybe you were going to be in Kona for the Ironman World Championships or were going to head to New Zealand for the 70.3 Worlds, before both of those got canceled. Maybe you just wanted to hang out with your triathlon friends.
We get it.
For the week of Oct. 5-11, when so many triathletes would have been gathering on the Big Island, let’s instead gather virtually. When races are canceled, we have to make our own adventures.
Here’s your Hawaii From Home challenge: one week, 140.6 miles.
