2020 Registration is Sold Out.

THE 2020 LAVAMAN WAIKOLOA IS NOW SOLD OUT

Approximately 100 CHARITY SLOTS will open in October.  We will work down the WAITLIST, and each of the slots offered will require a minimum $100.00 donation to the Lavaman Supported Charities in addition to the entry fee.  If you wish to sign up for the WAITLIST, 

You may also want to consider checking out Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training Program where you can possibly gain entry into the Lavaman, have a great training program and raise money to help in their research to find a cure for Leukemia.  Please check out their website by linking from the Lavaman Website and hopefully find one of their participating chapters in your area that is participating in the 2020 Lavaman. 

Please check our website frequently in case we are able to open up any additional slots, but first, add your name to the WAITLIST as we will always give those on the Wait List priority should any additional slots become available.  There are a few slots that will be available through local non-profit auctions as well.  Currently, there are two that will be offered at the Daniel Sayre Memorial Foundation Auction at their Annual Firemen’s Awards Gala being held on August 31http://www.DanielSayreFoundation.net

If you have any questions or if you are an athlete who needs to sign up on a relay team that has already been created, or if you are holding an unused certificate for an entry, then please e-mail Stacy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
