When it comes to planning the perfect Hawaii vacation, so much comes to mind. There is, of course, picking out the best place to stay in South Maui which you can find at our oceanfront condos or 2 bedroom vacation rentals. You also need to figure out how you are going to spend your time in paradise! If participating in a local event with the Maui community piques your interest, we suggest adding the Annual Maui 5K Run to your vacation itinerary!

Slated for Sunday, March 1st, this run will surely get your heart pumping and good vibes flowing as proceeds from the race will go towards improving the health of the Maui community. Since 2011, this annual island event has donated money to local schools to help improve keiki (children) athletic programs. So not only will you be feeling good about yourself for completing a challenging race, but you’ll also feel good about doing something that gives back to the Hawaiian community. What could be better than that?

On March 1st you will gather at around 7 am at the Maalaea Triangle for both the 5K and the 1-mile run and walk. Participants will be shown the start line after a safety brief and will be met at the parking lot area off of Hauoli Street at the end of the race. Post-race an awards ceremony is scheduled to begin around 8:30 am followed by refreshments.

Make sure to mark your calendars and don’t forget to register! Online registration is now open for 2020 with an entry fee of $30/person plus a minimal processing fee. Do keep in mind that the entry fee will increase following February 15th and registration closes on February 27th at midnight! All participants can pick up participation packets at Adventure Sports Maui on February 29th between 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

We hope you consider joining this Maui event during your stay in March. In the meantime, enjoy looking into the great condo rentals we have available for you right here on our website. If you see a rental that looks like the perfect fit for you, then don’t hesitate to give us a call or reach out and book your next stay in Maui.
