2012 Sea to Stars – Hardest Hill Climb in the World

Endurance cyclists have a new race to add to their bucket list with slots remaining for the 2012 Sea to Stars cycling expedition on Saturday, August 11 – the hardest hill climb in the world.

Those up for this epic life-changing challenge will depart from the oceanfront Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows and cycle to the Mauna Kea Visitors Center riding a distance of around 49 miles and climbing to 9,300 ft elevation.

Mauna Kea earns the distinction of the world’s tallest mountain from the sea floor (30,000 ft tall), higher than Mount Everest which stands at 29,000 ft.

With a steepness grade of more than 17 percent, Sea to Stars has been billed one of the toughest hill climbs in the world.

After the race, shuttle buses will transport cyclists back to the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows for an outdoor recovery after-party party and BBQ.

An awards ceremony will recognize the overall male and female winners and a range of prizes will be up for grabs.

The Mauna Lani Bay is offering Sea to Stars competitors an accommodation offer with rooms starting from $199 per night.  The hotel is located on three miles of pristine shoreline and is recognized as one of the “World’s Top Earth-Friendly Getaways” by Conde Nast Traveler.
