Hilo Marathon

March 17, 2013 · Hilo, HI

Distance: 26.2 miles

This certified, scenic course follows “the coast of old Hawaii” along the Pacific Ocean, past exotic waterfalls, over narrow bridges and lava beaches. Start to mile 10 is a net downhill of 500 ft., with some hills in the first 8 miles but fairly flat after that.Hilo is located in one of the cooler, more lush parts of the “Big Island” of Hawaii, which translates into good running conditions.Enthusiastic volunteers at well-stocked aid stations, awards given in various age groups, entertainment and great food at the Finish Line make this a memorable event for everyone.
