The Honolulu Marathon is the fourth largest marathon in the US, attracting around 30,000 participants every December. Unlike many marathons, the Honolulu Marathon is unique in that there is no limit on the number of participants and there’s no cut-off time, so the race attracts both fast runners as well as walkers and really is a run in paradise.
The Honolulu Marathon 2018 is taking place on Sunday, December 9, 2018.
