|The crowd watching the Peaman race.|
About an hour after that race, biathletes gathered at the Kailua Pier for Peaman's Wee and DLT Biathlon, a 3/4 mile swim and 3.9 mile run. Makena Becker was there and took some photos, so we actually have photos in this post! Unfortunately I don't have a link to any results those, since I was never able to locate them on West Hawaii Today's website. (They did appear in the print version on Tuesday, I believe).
Pablo Ureta (below) took first place over Luis De La Torre (the "DLT" honoree of the race), while Jennifer Stabrylla took first place for the ladies.
In the Peawee division, Duke Becker sprinted to a super fast finish to take first place - he's heading into transition in the photo below.
As usual, Peaman was there, showing his excitement about the start of football season again, and cruised to the finish line with Helgi Olafson.
More photos from the Peaman race are available here.
Finally that morning was the Big Island Road Runners' Hilo Bay 5k/10k on the Hilo side of the island. In the 5k, Patrick Baker and Ada Brown took first place, while Chris Gregory and Angie Miyashiro won the 10k. Full results are posted below:
Finally, last weekend was a rare chance to get in a run-bike-run workout at Kua Bay. As usual, distances were variable, with most people opting for the 8k/40 mile/8k version.
