The Honolulu Marathon has been run since 1973 and has steadily grown to become the fourth-largest marathon in the United States, consistently placing among the world’s 10 largest marathons in terms of total finishers.
Entry to the Honolulu Marathon is open to everybody age 7 and over. Unlike other marathons of similar size, popularity and stature, there are no qualifying standards to meet, no fixed limits on the number of runners and no time limit to finish the course (all runners receive an official time and certificate).
Marathon Course: 26.2 miles
The Honolulu Marathon’s scenic course includes spectacular ocean views alongside world-famous Waikiki Beach, plus Diamond Head and Koko Head volcanic craters.
The terrain is level except for short uphill grades around Diamond Head.
Early registration is available online through November 23 via the official Honolulu Marathon website.
