marathon aid station
(this is a team hosted event)
Aloha SKA Aid Station volunteers please sign up for the aid station again this year at the Lawai Cannery! Free t-shirts and a super charged atmosphere on Sunday Sept. 2. The aid station on this marathon get widespread praise for being one of the best around!!
We need a crew for 645-11AM and another crew from 11-to about 1 pm-ish. Volunteers hours can be assigned to this event and the marathon always generously donates to our team. Its a super easy and fun way to get to your obligation as parent team member. Swimmers can also earn volunteer hours towards community service!
The Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon begin in Poipu, the world-class resort community at the sunny southern end of the island, with routes sharing the first 11 miles. The courses follow the contour of the scenic coastline, offering magnificent views of the island’s picturesque beaches, rugged volcanic peaks, and green tropical rain forests. As dawn breaks, runners experience lush green vistas as they approach the shade of the century-old Tunnel of Trees before winding through misty Omao where the half marathoners enter Kukui’ula Resort offering spectacular ocean views for the last few miles.
The full marathon heads out to Lawai where our aid station sits at the Cannery storage entrance before climbing to reveal stunning ocean views at the top of Kalaheo. The remaining miles are a gradual descent until runners receive a rousing island welcome upon their return to Poipu Beach. The courses are USATF certified.
