About This Activity

Camp Bennett has partnered with XTERRA to launch another great year of Freedom Fest Races at Kualoa Ranch.  Almost 1000 athletes from 6 countries and 6 states will compete in an effort to raise money for local charities.  Live bands, volunteers, swimmer, bikers, and runners, will cheer on freedom as they do something great for themselves and for those in need.

Athletes can choose from several events and get the whole family involved!

Saturday July 5th events include:

  • 1K swim race at Rainbows Surf Break
  • XTERRA Off-Road Triathlon (consisting of a 1K swim, 20K bike, and 10K run)
  • 20k / 40k mountain bike race

Sunday July 6th events include:

  • XTERRA 5K trail run/hike
  • XTERRA 10K trail run/hike
  • 500M kids race.

Both days athletes will be entertained by live music donated by local artist.

Age group winners qualify for the XTERRA World Championship Triathlon on Maui.  Trail run overall winners receive FREE entry to the XTERRA Trail Run World Championship on Oahu in December.  Come volunteer, race, or just buy a ticket to the BBQ and enjoy the live music and amazing views of Kualoa Ranch.

Freedom Fest started in 2009 by a small fitness business in Kailua called Camp Bennett.   Camp Bennett is a multi-sport group teaching classes in all the aspects of triathlon and boot camp as well as personal and online coaching.  The group wanted to create an off-road event in the valley that would raise money for local charities and encourage families to get out and play!  The group partnered with XTERRA in 2011 because of their LIVE MORE philosophy.  XTERRA is a Hawaii based company with 100 events produced in the United States and globally.  With the partnership 25 people earn slots to race in the XTERRA World Championships in Maui.  This is very special because around the world one must typically win a championship race in order to qualify.

See you this Independence weekend at Kualoa Ranch Surf Gate for FUN, family, fitness, and celebration!!!
