The beginning of 2010 brings an exciting running event to the Hilo side of the Big Island. For those hearty runners who are looking to go a little longer than your typical 5K, the Big Island Road Runners present the Hilo to Volcano 31 mile (50K) Ultra Marathon and Relay on January 23, 2010. At 6 a.m., individual runners completing the entire distance will depart from Coconut Island in Hilo. At 6:30 a.m., the relay participants will start at the same location. The runners will travel from Coconut Island to the Cooper Center in Volcano. Each relay team will consist of 3 runners and all runners must provide their own support vehicles. Additional questions can be directed to Gregory Lum Ho at 808-987-5224.
The cost for the race is $30 and entries must be postmarked by January 8, 2010.

Good luck to all participants!
