Ultraman is a three-day, 320-mile ultra-endurance event which takes place annually on the Big Island. Entry is limited to 35 participants and is by invitation only. Founded in 1983, the event is held on the traditional Thanksgiving weekend.

The race begins with a 6.2-mile ocean swim from Kailua Bay to Keauhou Bay, followed by a cross-country bike ride around the southern tip of the island to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Vertical climbs total 7,600 feet.

Day 2 is a 171.4-mile bike ride from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park along the east side of the island, cutting west and finishing at Kohala Village Inn on Hawi Road. Vertical climbs total 8,600 feet.

Day 3 is a 52.4-mile double-marathon run from Hawi south to Kailua-Kona finishing on the beach at the Old Airport State Park.

Each stage must be completed in 12 hours or less. The swim should be completed in 5-1/2 hours.

Limited to 35 athletes, and five relay teams, participants are expected from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Puerto Rico, and the United States. More than 50 percent of the field will have participated in at least one previous Ultraman.

Each athlete must be accompanied by an individual support team of at least two persons over the entire course. Many of these team members volunteer from the Big Island community each year.

The event attracts individuals who not only thrive on personal challenge and enjoy the thrill of victory, but who come to understand, as did the ancient Hawaiians, the importance of aloha (love), ohana (family), and kokua (help).

Individual resources, mental, physical, and spiritual, are shared in an atmosphere where everyone who completes the course is a winner, and the pursuit of human excellence is the fundamental rule of the road.
