Honolulu Marathon

December 8 2019

Lace up your sneakers and get ready to pound the pavement for this year’s annual Honolulu Marathon.  The 26.2 mile course takes participants on a scenic run across the island starting bright and early at 5 a.m. on December 8, 2019, for the fourth largest marathon in the United States. The course gives participants a scenic view of Oahu’s south shore, taking them from Ala Moana Beach Park through Waikiki, past Diamond Head and all the way to Hawaii Kai. And the aloha spirit truly shines through this event as the marathon is more focused on having fun rather than competition; so there’s no time limit and each participant gets a t-shirt and medal upon completion.
