Tucked beneath the stunning Ko’olau Mountains, Aloha Racing brings our 1st annual Ho’omau 5K, 10K & Half Marathon to Sea Life Park! Including the sights & sounds of O’ahu’s extreme east coast where the grand cliffs of Makapu’u descend into the ocean, as well as a trek through the homeland community of Waimanalo, athletes will experience unparalleled views and the sense of ohana that make these islands so special.

Dedicated in Support of Winners’ Camp Foundation!
Winners’ Camp teaches Hawaii teens and tweens to make positive choices, awakening them to their personal and community potential. The
retreat they offer empowers our keiki to break through self-limiting beliefs and move towards greater success in their lives, as well as giving them the
tools for accelerated learning. Showing teens and their families how to design a new future for themselves and to have a keauhou
(new beginning) as they create their own destiny, your donations will have a positive impact for generations to come.
We know money can get tight sometimes, but you can still help! Volunteers who sign up
online can choose to have $25 added to the funds we send Winners’ Camp Foundation!

Without volunteers, these events simply wouldn’t be possible!
From packet pick-up and registration to course marshals and meal service, there are tons of ways you can help. Sure… when you volunteer, you can look forward to that warm & fuzzy feeling that comes by sharing so much aloha, but there’s WAY more to it than that. There’s no experience necessary but space is limited, so please let us know you’re available right away!

|Ho’omau is a Boutique Event|
|What does that mean? We’re glad you asked! Due to the unique nature of this spectacular course, things are going to look a bit different than your run-of-the-mill event, in several ways:|
|– Participation will be limited.|
When we’re full, we’re full… please be sure to get in right away if you’re planning to join us.
– All distances will use a time trial start, with 2 athletes starting every 5 seconds.
Two at a time, so yup… you can still start with your buddy!
– Fastest athletes will start first.
Knowing your race pace is going to be crucial come race day.
|The entire shoulder will be coned off for everyone’s safety, but there are a few sections that are no wider than a bike lane, so unfortunately, neither dogs nor strollers will be allowed.|
|Everything else will remain the same… finisher medals, cooling towels, free race photos, awards, and those VIEWS! Holy smokes, you do NOT want to miss this one, as 2024 may or may not return to this same course.|
The above information is only that which is unique to this event.
