The Great Aloha Run has a rich history, one that spans over the last 28-years. With that being said, it is almost time for the 2012 Great Aloha Run. You can be sure that there will be thousands of runners, so if you have not already signed up, then you can click on one of the links provided below to do so.
The Great Aloha Run was the first largest first-time running event in the state with over 12,000 individuals signing up for the event in its first year. Again, that was 28-years ago, so you can imagine how many people will be entered in 2012. The Great Aloha Run has also been recognized nationally as one of the top “100 Great Road Races” to participate in by Runner’s World Magazine.
Over the past twenty-seven years, the Great Aloha Run, which is one of Hawaii’s largest participatory race, has raised over $9.1 million awarded to over 150 non-profit health and human service organizations and community groups throughout Hawaii. This year the Great Aloha Run will look to donate even more to these non-profits in an effort to help them stay running.
The Great Aloha Run is not a marathon, so unlike the Honolulu Marathon you will not have to race for 26-miles. The course is still a runners dream though, as it has been for several years.
The course consists of an 8.15-mile relatively flat course that starts at Aloha Tower in Downtown Honolulu. From there it winds its way along the historic Honolulu Harbor, down Nimitz Highway, Kamehameha Highway and into the Aloha Stadium.
The finish line is the back goal line of the north end zone on the stadium floor. Aid Stations are set up at approximately miles 3, 5 and 7 as well as the end of the course. There is always emergency help close by if needed.
