    Hi, the link for the map doesn’t seem to work. https://endurestrong.com/events/53729-hawaii-kai-ultra-run-xtreme/races/112048-24h-run As it asks for a password.

    Also will there be medals for the July 2019 half marathon in the Kai Ultra runs?


    1. Sorry about the link. That’s a 3rd party link and we’ll try and post a new one that’s up to date.
      Yes, medals for finishing all distances.
