For runners who enjoy logging miles with their dogs, these races are worth checking out.
What better place to escape winter weather than paradise proper? The capital of the Aloha State hosts a winter marathon with an island vibe.
When local shops in Oahu begin to hang up “mele kalikimaka” signs, that means it’s the start of the holiday season—and the Honolulu Marathon (honolulumarathon.org) is just a few days away. This early December race brings more than 25,000 runners to Hawaii each year. The course isn’t easy, but the reworks display before a pre-dawn start and racers decked out in spectacular costumes will ensure you have a boatload of fun. All finishers receive puka shell necklaces to take a bit of the island home.
