Lace up your running shoes and get ready to race through beautiful Honolulu. The Hapalua half marathon is one of the premier running events of the year. The event starts at 6 am on the morning of April 10, and you can expert live entertainment and cheering crowds along the entire race course. Whether you are planning on trying to beat your best time or just coming to join in the fun, our Waikiki Beach hotel puts you close to the racing action.
The 13.1-mile course takes runners on a scenic route through Honolulu that winds you past the dramatic landscape of Diamond Head and along the curling waves of Waikiki Bay. The race kicks off at statue of Duke Kahanamoku on Kalakaua Avenue right on the waterfront. The starting line is only a five-minute walk from our Waikiki Beach hotel, and the finish line at Kapiolani Beach Park is also within easy reach.
Online registration ends on April 3, but you can still sign up during the race weekend. All participants will receive a special dri-tech training shirt and commemorative finishers medal. Walk-in entrants are available at The Hapalua Expo. The Expo is taking place at the Hawaii Convention Center on Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9.
