Athletes take on ‘Race to the Base’ triathlon

Hundreds of athletes spent Saturday morning swimming, bicycling and running in the “Race to the Base” triathlon.

A swim at Ala Moana Beach kicked off the race, followed by a bicycle ride across the H-3 Freeway to Kaneohe, then a run on Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

Our own athlete and anchor Howard Dashefsky served as emcee.

The triathlon is put on by the Hawaii Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation. Proceeds goes to the maintenance and operation of the new memorial on the Civic Center grounds in downtown Honolulu, and the establishment of a scholarship program for the families of those who have sacrificed their loved ones in the line of duty.
