Mahalo to everyone participating in this years event.
There was a record turnout – 81, with runners (and walkers) finishing distances from a Half Marathon (13.1 miles) to 100 Miles! Yes, we’ve been waiting for someone to finish 100 Miles on this course for years now, and Blaine Lints came through big time, finishing in just under 21 hours! We also opened it up to back-to-back days with Les Omura and Ruth Modisette both finishing the Marathon x 2. The next HKUR event will be on December 15 & 16, 2018 in Kalama Valley, and again in July 2019 with the XTreme course.

We couldn’t do it without our sponsors. Mahalo!
