Hawaii > Ka'u Family Fun Fest Half Marathon, 10K & 5K
Na'alehu, HI

   

Date

Event Details

Known as "the Southernmost Goodwill Games in the USA," this family-friendly event features a Half Marathon, 10K and 5K races, and all-ages tournaments guaranteed to provide hours of summer fun. Awards will be presented to the top male and female Half Marathon finishers and overall winners for each race and age category of the tournaments. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Bay Clinic Ka'u Family Health Center Construction Fund.

This event promises to be a memorable experience for runners of all ages and abilities. The race course traverses an old historic "Cane Field Road" in Ka'u, once used for hauling sugar cane to Na'alehu and Pahala sugar plantations. Offering one of the most scenic views of the Big Island's southern coast, the route encompasses over 30 miles of breathtaking coastal landscapes from mauka to makai (mountain to sea).

Following the race, athletes will demonstrate their skills and compete for prizes in archery, basketball, Jan Ken Po, a hunter's obstacle course and Portuguese horse shoe tournaments. Live music and entertainment, a live auction with Mayor Billy Kenoi, food booths, a health expo and a number of children's activities will be also featured.

Early registration ends May 11, 2011. Event information and updates can be found at okaukakou.com, bayclinic.org, on Facebook (Kau Family Fun Fest) and Twitter (@KauFamFunFest).
