Things are getting crowded here in Kona, with the Ironman World Championships less than two weeks away! Many athletes from around the country and around the world have been arriving to attempt to get acclimated to Kona's hot October temperatures.
As part of the race week festivities, PATH (People's Advocacy for Trails Hawaii) is hosting their 25th Annual 5K/10K Run/Walk this Sunday, October 3. The race starts at 7:30 a.m. at Hale Halawai and goes south along Alii Drive. Awards will be given for the top 2 finishers overall and the top 2 finishers in 5-year age groups. Following the race, there is also a free keiki dash at Hale Halawai. Bring the whole family, since strollers and pets are welcome!
In addition to the race, there is also a Silent Auction with lots of great prizes, including hotel stays, massages, gift baskets, restaurant certificates and more!
The registration fee is $35 for adults and $20 for children 14 & under and includes a t-shirt. Registration forms are available on PATH's website.
