Participants are asked to meet by the start area on Ala Moana Boulevard ready to start at 5 am, Sunday, December 13.

Your bib is color-coded for the start area, but we urge you to be early, especially if you’re starting close to the front.


The course goes through downtown Honolulu, past Iolani Palace and the Christmas lights, through Waikiki and climbs up and around Diamond Head, before heading out through Kahala and out to Hawaii Kai. Turning back after Hawaii Kai toward Kahala and Honolulu, the course passes Diamond Head again on the ocean side before finishing in Kapiolani Park.

After your finish, you will receive your medal and be directed to the finisher village. We’ll show your finish on the big screen (with a 20min delay so you don’t miss it!). Please hydrate, have some malasadas and pick up your finisher shirt.
