Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, Hawaii's popular health, fitness and outdoor lifestyle resort, is partnering with Hulakai, the local stand up paddle board and ocean sports company, to present the inaugural Stand Up Paddle Race For Fitness on Hawaii Island's Kohala Coast.
The race, which will be part of an ongoing paddling series, is set to become one of Hawaii's biggest SUP events for all ages and levels. SUP Race For Fitness is a celebration of the heritage of SUP in Hawaii and its evolution as one of the fastest growing water sports and fitness workouts in the world. One and two person outrigger canoe paddlers are also invited to participate.
The seven mile race will start from either Kiholo Bay or Kawaihae, depending on the wind direction race morning. The direction will be announced at the pre-race briefing held at Hulakai's flagship store in the Shops at Mauna Lani.
The finish line will be on the shores of Mauna Lani Bay, where the after-race celebration and awards ceremony will be held.
