Out and back course. Start near the Kailua Beach Park Boat Ramp. The wave-washed course follows the shoreline to a turnaround point near the Kaneohe Marine Corps Base, then back to the start area. The entire course is on the beach. Shoes are optional. Party! All participants are invited to an awards gathering with potluck refreshments afterwards. Though not required, you are encouraged to bring a dish or snack to share! Coolers will be available for items that need to be kept cold.
Kauais tropical paradise is the backdrop for this world-class event. The Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon participants pass hula dancers and Taiko drum troupes along the course while viewing striking mountain and ocean views. Each runner concludes his or her journey along one of the most beautiful oceanfront finishes in road racing.
What you need to know about Running Events
Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.
If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.
