Honolulu is the capital of the State of Hawaii, the 50th of the United States of America and is located on the southeast coast of Oahu island. In this corner of paradise, next 11th of December will take place the event many people are looking forward, the Marathon.
This is undoubtedly an unparalleled event that gives participants not only a healthy athletic competition but also a spectacular backdrop that offers beaches, as the famous Waikiki Beach with a seaview from above, and the volcanic craters of Diamond Head and Koko Head.
The Honolulu Marathon is the fourth largest marathon in the United States, which annually attracts about 30,000 participants and the track remains open until the last partecipant crosses the finish line.
Honolulu has a mild / arid climate with warm winters and low rainfall throughout the year mainly concentrated in the period running from October to March. Then, December is characterized by a high humidity that definitely hard tests even the best trained sportsmen. For this reason, the event usually starts around 5 am when the temperature is around 20 degrees. The main advice is to drink plenty of water and protect from the sun.
The route starts in Ala Moana Boulevard, which in the local language means “ocean path” and ends at the Kapiolani Park.
The walk of 42 km is almost all flat except for a short part at the volcanic mountains of Diamond Headin, where there is a slight slope.
Throughout the route there are 16 rescue points manned by 2,300 volunteers who work in shifts, to serve the water, energy drinks and providing professional medical care.
Services including free bus transportation, from 2 in the morning, starting in the parking of the Honolulu Zoo in Kapahulu Avenue and portable toilets located throughout the area will be available.
A nice experience for those who have already participated in these events, both for the great competition that awaits you and for the beautiful location.
Good run to everybody … and may the best win!
