Honolulu Marathon

Since its inception in 1973, the Honolulu Marathon has beckoned runners with its unique blend of urban energy and tropical paradise. Set against Oahu's stunning backdrop of azure waters, verdant mountains, and the vibrant pulse of Honolulu city, the marathon offers a journey like no other. Starting near Ala Moana Beach Park, participants traverse through the city's historic downtown, the world-famous Waikiki Beach, and the volcanic Diamond Head crater, all the while bathed in the warm embrace of the Hawaiian sun. The Honolulu Marathon is more than a race; it's a 26.2-mile aloha-filled experience that celebrates the island's spirit, beauty, and the welcoming hearts of its people.
