Hapalua Half-Marathon 2017
The Hapaula Half-Marathon will be at 6am on Sunday April 9, 2017.
The course offers up plenty of gorgeous Hawaiian scenery, from the starting line near the Duke Kahanamoku Statue on Kalakaua Avenue (named for the five-time Olympic medalist in swimming who was later one of the earliest popularizers of surfing). From there, runners head west and north along Kalakaua Avenue and Ala Moana Boulevard, all the way to the turn on Smith Street.
After that, runners head back down Ala Moana down the route they’ve just run, all the way to Diamond Head Crater State Monument, where they’ll run all the way around the 475-acre park that circles what is perhaps Honolulu’s most famous site. Called a tuff volcano for the rock it is made of, Diamond Head erupted some 300,000 years ago, leaving the crater we know today, which is now filled with hiking trails and some of Hawaii’s most spectacular views.
Start: Waikiki Beach, Honolulu
Finish: Kapiolani Park, Honolulu
Distance: 13.1 miles – Half Marathon
