Known as one of the best marathons in the world, including the #10 destination marathon in North America by Runner’s World Magazine, the Maui Marathon is a celebrated community gathering that includes health, wellness, the spirit of giving and love for our island residents. According to the organizers’ website, it is the longest running event in all of the state of Hawaii, and is the oldest marathon of its kind west of the Mississippi River. And this year it will be happening all over again on October 14th.
Along with being a marathon that includes a full marathon, half marathon, 10K, 5K and a newly added full marathon relay, this also happens to be a charity event. The Valley Isle Road Runners has organized the run since 1970 and continues to see that the greater Maui community benefits from this event. While many athletes and aspiring runners join in on this run each year for the love of competition, it’s really about the cause that counts. Proceeds from races such as the marathon go towards helping Maui County community programs.
This year marks the 48th annual Maui Marathon and it also happens to be a Boston Marathon qualifier. The race will start at 5 a.m. on Hookele St. in Kahului, Maui and will end in the beautiful Kaanapali area.
