updates and instructions


Here are some final updates and instructions!

Packet and Number Pick Up:
We have two options for number pick up this year. On Friday, the 14th, we'll be having a number pick up at the Running Room in Honolulu from 3-7 p.m. 819 Kapahulu Avenue 808.737.2422. This will give you a chance to get a little more sleep on race morning, have your number all pinned on and ready to go, and get some last minutes supplies and nutrition.

You can also pick up your number at the race site on race morning beginning at 5 a.m. and no later than 6:30 a.m.

PLEASE NOTE: Whether you pick up your number on Friday night or Saturday morning, you will still need to get your chip on Saturday morning! Please get there early,WE WANT TO START ON TIME and we anticipate about 300 runners!

Athletes may also register in person at either of these places.

Directions and Parking:
Gunstock Ranch is about 1 mile north of Laie on Kamehameha Highway. Coming from Honolulu, head past Kaneohe north on Kamehameha Hwy past Laie, and turn left at the Gunstock Ranch sign. Coming from Haleiwa, head south on Kamehameha Highway. Go through Kahuku, and then after about a mile look for the Gunstock Ranch sign on the right side of the road.

Once you turn off Kamehameha Highway at the Gunstock Ranch sign, follow the signs to the Parking Area, which is near the corral
