Football may be dominating sports news this weekend, but here on Hawaii Island we’re also celebrating our beloved ocean sports/triathlon heritage!
The 2012 Try-Go-Athon was hosted Saturday in Hilo, an event benefiting the Kamehameha Canoe Club. A competitive field of paddlers (OC1, stand up, surf ski) swimmers and runners participated in solo and relay divisions. Members of our Team Huggo’s brought home the gold in two events, and we’re flying our colors high and bold!
Congratulations to Nate Grosholski who took top honors in the 5K run and 4.2 mile paddle-OC1 event and Elisabeth Torres who finished first in the .5 mile ocean swim.
