Join Susan G. Komen Marathon for the Cure® at the 2013 Kona Marathon and Half Marathon.
About the event:
This year marks the Kona Marathon’s 20th Anniversary!!! There are two major attractions for the Kona Marathon. One is location. The various race courses run along the breathtaking ocean coastline and through the black volcanic lava fields on the Big Island of Hawaii. While location alone should be enough to lure quality runners there is another significant draw. The marathon course follows run portion of the high profile and widely acclaimed Ford Ironman World Championship. Runners come from all corners of the world in order to participate in the Kona Marathon and run this famous course.
