Tantalus Triple Trek is a GO!

Two Hurricanes Versus Triple Trek


With two storms possibly impacting our state this week (& the weekend), we want to assure you that we are tracking their development. Though the mottos of "We wouldn't want it easy" & "A little mud never HURT" come to mind, we are looking at everyone's safety first and foremost.

The current tracks have Hurricane Madeleine passing south, impacting Hawaii Island sometime Wednesday with the rest of the island chain feeling any residual Thursday. Hurricane Lester is predicted to impact the Islands during the weekend though it is not known to what degree. As we get further information and consult with Na Ala Hele, we will inform all what is happening. We will make the final call on Friday morning to whether the race will be postponed. We do realize that some have travelled overseas to do this event however we want to emphasize that the safety of everyone comes first. Thank you for your understanding and support.

Mahalo and have a great day.

Your Triple Trek RDs
Jeff, Sandi, & Loren

Thanks Jeff... Right now in Mountainview Big Island...I'm getting bombarded with pre Madeline storm and Lester in a couple days. My home and animals are at risk... So I will not be able to participate in TT :-(. I will continue training and hopefully join HURT for peacock!! Stay safe !!!!
