Honolulu Rainbow EKIDEN & WaikiKitchen

March 11, 2018

Celebrating the 6th annual Honolulu Rainbow EKIDEN! The Honolulu Rainbow EKIDEN is a 5K Relay Race with a breathtaking course along Diamond Head and the coast line. For the first time we are introducing new categories! A 3-runner/team, “EKIDEN Lite“! Jog or walk together with your friends in “Fun Run & Walk“! Set your keiki’s free in “Kid’s Challenge“!

The Honolulu Rainbow EKIDEN began in March 2013 as Hawaii’s first “Ekiden” relay race for amateur runners.

“Ekiden,” a cultural event born and developed in Japan, has become a popular fun run/ team building event around the world. The Honolulu Rainbow EKIDEN was originally founded with a mindset to cross pollinate the deep culture of Japan and Hawaii through a fun sporting event, while invigorating the local communities, creating layers and layers of friendship, looking past ethnicity, which in hope will become a big rainbow for generations to come.



“Not just an ordinary fun run!” is one of the big theme for Honolulu Rainbow EKIDEN and one of the main feature is to be able to enjoy all the popular local vendors at one place!


Food truck vendors that are popular at the farmers market will come together serving bite size finger food suitable just before the race, full on meal type portion plate lunches to ice cold desserts to cool off the hot sun of Hawaii!

Date/Time: March, 11, 2018 8am – 1pm
Place: Kapiolani Park. Event is open to public.
