When it comes to living on Maui, there’s just no comparison. With our beautiful west side beaches, our fantastic restaurants, and never-ending outdoor activities, living here is hard to beat. We’re sure that’s why you’re spending your free time checking out our oceanfront luxury listings and searching through our West Maui condo listings, but have you spent any time reflecting on why you wanted to buy a home here in the first place? Well, if you need a reminder, don’t worry because that’s what we’re here for. And today we’d like to shine some light on an annual event that brings the community together and the world to our forefront and makes living here that much better.
Each year on Maui there is a popular athletic competition known as the XTERRA Run that brings some of the world's best athletes to our shores. The run will be kicking off on Oct. 27 at 9 a.m. at none other than the popular Ritz Carlton Hotel in Kapalua. The XTERRA run is the world's premier off-road triathlon and includes a 1-mile swim that starts at D.T. Fleming Beach, 20-miles of mountain biking along 3,500 feet of the lower slopes of the West Maui Mountains, and a 6.5-mile trail run through the forest before ending with a run on the beach. Yes, this run is intense but don’t be intimidated as there are plenty of options for those of you who are not professionals. The XTERRA run also includes less drastic race options and runs that are less than a mile long, so even the kids can join in on this athletic event. You might also consider volunteering so you and your family can join in on the fun without having to break a sweat.
Every year the race attracts around 800 racers, 75 of which are professional and more than 700 amateurs from approximately 50 different countries, so it’s quite a site to see. If you’re intrigued by the sound of this heart-racing competition, make sure to mark your calendars so you and your loved ones can know for yourself what makes this event worthwhile here on Maui. We hope you’re planning on training for the race this fall. In between workouts, make sure to contact us about elite homes for sale on the island. We have some excellent properties to choose from so don’t hesitate and let’s get you started today. Have a great week and keep checking back to our blog for the latest in all-things real estate and news on Maui.
