The Run & Walk For The Whales Half Marathon course follows an out-and-back route that starts at Ma’alaea, and from there takes runners out first on a stretch that takes them northward along Makena Bay toward Kalepolepo Beach Park. The course will pass by the fairways of Wailea Emerald Golf Course and Makena Golf Course for much of the race, and finish back near the beach. The biggest hills occur between mile markers 2 and 3, and then again as runners are making their return around mile 12.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race.
