The EPIC5 is a 5 island adventure at the 140.6 triathlon distance. This event is a fundraiser to benefit the Special Olympics Hawaii organization.
Our purpose for this event is to challenge ourselves physically while embracing the rich history and culture of the Hawaiian islands, and to enrich the guiding principle of kokua – to help & give back by way of fundraising.
We are looking for solid athletes with a passion for adventure and a desire to make the world a better place.
