2016 Tinman Triathlon Wrap Up
After a week's delay because of Tropical Storm Darby, the 36th edition of the Tinman Triathlon took place today at Kapiolani Park.
434 triathletes took part in the annual event that consists of an 750 meter swim, a 40 K bike and a 10 K run. The race began at 5:45 AM after recognizing fallen firefighter and former Tinman multiple champion Cliff Rigsbee.
19-year old Kuikaika Kaahanui edged out Benjamin Williams in a battle for the men's crown finishing in 1:46:12. Competing in his second Tinman, the winner described his race as : "Pretty hard. I was pretty far back, and I didn't think I could catch him. He's my coach too - a little rivalry there!"
Coming from behind after trailing after the bike, Carly Killam was the first female finisher in a time of 2:04:42.
Amy Harpstrite, Leland How, and Donahue Fujii kept their Tinman streak intact having done all 36 races!
