Review of Kona Marathon by

Posted by: on July, 10 2013

This was a new host hotel for the Sunday races, and therefore a new race route, along with new setup back at the Finish Line. Route had some challenges — that hill being at the end of the Race is daunting, and the route through the dirt/rocks was kind of dangerous. I know you’re already looking at these issues, so won’t belabor the points.

It’s obvious that a great deal of thought went in to organizing the event. The Finisher Medals were really nice. I enjoyed the Friday Fun Run, the Pasta Party, and the boat ride after the Race on Sunday.

For the first time in a new location, I was quite pleased. Problem solving was rapid and “on point”. Keep up the good work.
