This is a unique and exciting opportunity for our island community to experience the beauty of the scenic Kaiwi coastline at a runner’s or walker’s pace. The road is closed from the start line until Hanauma Bay!
Date: Sunday, November 19, 2017
Race Start: 6:45 a.m.
Description: The annual Kaiwi Coast Run & Walk is a community oriented 4-mile journey along the famous Kaiwi coast scenic highway. The event begins at Awawamalu (known as Sandy Beach) with the rise of the sun over the Kaiwi Channel, a Hawaiian oli (chant) and the blowing of the pu (conch) shell.
Course: Starting at Awawamalu (known as Sandy Beach), the course continues around the Kaiwi coastline, passes Halona and Hanauma Bay and finishes at the Hui Nalu Canoe Club on the shores of Maunalua Bay.
Uniqueness: This is the only pedestrian race sanctioned for this area of O‘ahu. This special setting allows the race organizers to carefully craft an event that advocates for the pristine, untouched gifts of this coast.
Shuttle Service: Free shuttle service provided to the starting line from Hawaii Kai Park and Ride.
Mahalo: Proceeds benefit Hui Nalu Canoe Club programs and supports the mission of the Ka Iwi Coalition and Livable Hawaii Kai Hui. Hui Nalu Canoe Club is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
