VINFAST IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP - SEGMENT 1

Kailua-Kona wharf to Mauna Lani Resort. Starting on the quay in Kailua-Kona, we've headed out early to give you an idea of what it will look like on race day. This urban section of the course makes a dog leg loop in the town, taking a left on the Kuakini Hwy, then a right on Makala and up to the Queen K, a right and down Palani Rd, then a left and straight out and up the Kuakini Hwy for a good climb. Take a U-turn and roll quickly back down to the junction with Palani Rd for a right turn and a steep little uphill punch before turning left onto the Queen K and the open road heading along the coast.

VINFAST IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP - SEGMENT 2

Mauna Lani Drive to Hawi turnaround. A reasonably flat roll up to the junction with Hwy 270, then blast down through Kawaihae and begin climbing up toward Hawi. Things gradually get greener as you begin to come around the north end of the island and get out of the rain shadow, and on many days this also means turning into a brutal headwind. Wind turbines off to your left as you approach Hawi are there for a reason!

VINFAST IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP - SEGMENT 3

Hawi to Mauna Lani Drive. Downhill big gear time, on many days with a huge tailwind helping drive you along. As you gradually turn southward back to Kawaihae the grasslands flow past and the ocean is pure blue off to your right.  A hard little uphill punch as you climb out of Kawaihae with the Pu'ukohola Heiau looming on your right, then turn right back onto the Queen K Hwy.

VINFAST IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP - SEGMENT 4

Mauna Lani Drive to Kailua-Kona wharf. Long straight stretches of sun soaked, hot black ribbon unroll before you and disappear under your wheels as you power through the lava fields heading back to Kona.  The heat is on, but the end approaches as you pass the lava tube, the donkey crossing signs, the airport...almost there.  Turn right and rocket briefly down Palani Road to a slow victory roll on the wharf and a view back at the town in the cool ocean breeze.  But in the Ironman World Championship it would be the transition zone and 26.2 miles of running still to go. Good Luck!
