Best organized race I have been to. Smiles from all.

LOVED this race. I’ve done 14 half and full marathons (including Honolulu Marathon four times) and it was my favorite!

Thanks for a great event! The Chase was a fun innovation. By the way, that’s a handsome ribbon on the finishers’ medal.

John Bender

Thank you for an amazing day! Such great preparation and awesome execution… This is looking to be the start of a GREAT Hawaii tradition! :)

Terri Willing

This had to have been one of the best organized races ever. Love the medal, and I appreciate all the water stops along the way. Did not worry about hydration. The bathrooms by the start were great too. Whoever organized this deserves a million bucks
