Don't miss out on one of the best things to do in Honolulu this year. Sign up for the 2016 JTB Rainbow Ekiden Run on Sunday, March 13. This exciting relay race takes runners on a spectacular course by Diamond Head. Take in incredible ocean views as you work with your team to finish on top. To honor the spirit of Aloha, ribbon leis are the race sashes that are passed back and forth between teammates. Each lap is only 5 km, so runners of all levels are welcome to take part.
This brand new event is part of the 2016 Honolulu Festival and promises to be fun for runners and spectators alike. The starting line is located at Kapiolani Park not far from our hotel. You can wake up in one of our ocean view rooms or suites and stroll over to the check-in venue in no time. Runners must register in advance, and you can sign up as a team for $250 or as an individual for $50.
And even if you're not running, you can still come out to cheer on the participants of all ages. You never know if you might be cheering on your desk clerk, because this year, even a few of our Waikiki resort staff are running!
