2019 Tantalus Triple Trek – Mahalo Nui & Aloha
Congratulations and thank you to all those who participated in this year’s Tantalus Triple Trek! It was another exciting and intriguing race this year. It had the highest start and finish rate from past years with 88 lining up that morning and 69 completing all three fun torturous loops! We hope you all came away with many great memories.
