Course

The start is a big, green lawn at the fantastic Ritz-Carlton Kapalua resort hotel.  It is an easy run on golf course bike paths for the first half mile. The fun starts as the course passes under the highway through a short tunnel and heads up the mountain.

You’ll face about 3 kilometers of uphill, wandering through an overgrown golf course, along dirt trails, through Oleander forests and alongside 60-foot high ironwood evergreens, to an unexpected mountain lake at the 650-foot level.

We’ll take you on some old pineapple field roads for another mile up and around the lake and then to what we are calling the downhill delights. You will lose that altitude running a slalom through the old Kapalua Village golf course, which is now overgrown — fabulously treed and with high green bermuda grasses — then suddenly into the open with fantastic views of the Pacific.

Don’t look out too long or you’ll stumble.  As you return to the 250-foot level there is a 200-meter technical, steep downhill into a gully next to the golf course, where you’ll jump over and duck under fallen trees and end up in a huge, rocky dry creek – at least we hope it will be dry.

Then through thick elephant grass, into a Cook pine nursery to a paved road that curves and climbs 100 feet to the head of a neat, narrow single track downhill with switchbacks that drop all the way down to the beach road.  We simply had to throw in a calf busting 250-meter beach run back to the resort and finish area.

3.3K/5K/10K DIVISIONS: (9 and under) (10-14) (15-19) (20-24) (25-29) (30-34) (35-39) (40-44) (45-49) (50-54) (55-59) (60-64) (65-69) (70-74) (75-79) (80+).

KIMO’S KEIKI K: Free fun run for kids 10 and under.  Distances are age appropriate 6-10 year olds run about 1/2km with 5 and under 100 yards. Parents are welcome to run with their children).
