Maui Oceanfront Marathon, Half Marathon, 15K, 10K & 5K

Sunday, January 19, 2020 • Lahaina, HI • Course Map

As its name suggests, the Maui Oceanfront Marathon, Half Marathon, 15K Run & 5K gives runners the chance to run along the oceanside highways of the windswept western coast of Maui, one of Hawaii’s most popular travel and beach resort destinations.


Fast and mostly flat throughout, with a few rolling hills along the 6.5-mile out-and-back course that those running the half cover twice, the half marathon is run at sea level, with views of whales and surfers on the waves out in the ocean just off the coast of Maui.

Though the full marathon starts in Wailea, the half marathon starts and finishes on Front Street in Lahaina, at the finish line where those running the full marathon complete their 26.2 miles. The 13.1-mile course for the half takes runners from Lahaina southeastward along the beachfront, along Front Street and Honoapiilania Highway, down to the turnaround point just past Olowalu and Kailiili Beach.

Along the way, the Hawaii oceanfront scenery is truly breathtaking, as runners trek along palm-tree-lined highways with the green, forested West Maui Mountains off in the distance.

Runners also pass by some of Maui’s most beautiful beaches along the race route, as the course passes twice each through Puamana Beach Park, Launiopoko State Park and Awalua Beach, once on the way out to the half-way turnaround and again on the way back toward the finish line in Lahaina. While the 15K and the half marathon are open to runners only, walkers are welcome in both the full marathon race and the 5K.

More than 1,000 runners crossed the finish line in all races combined in 2016, including just over 550 finishers in the half marathon alone.

Race Climate & Weather
