Weikel, a Lahaina resident, had a total time of 1 hour, 37 minutes, 14 seconds in the race, which included runs of two and five kilometers, with a 10-mile bicycle leg in between. The female winner was Amy Eck of Kailua, Oahu, in 2:22:19. The competition was originally to have been a triathlon, but the ocean swim portion was called off due to the arrival of Tropical Storm Iselle on Friday.
