Description

This beautiful course is all downhill except for a few gently rolling uphill sections at the beginning and end of the course. During the first 3 miles, the course is along Mamalohoa Hwy (Rt 11) as it passes through Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and then enters the community of Volcano. For the first 15 miles the course is surrounded by a mixture of original Hawaiian hapu'u & ʻōhi'a rainforest, residential and agricultural land. The Start, on a clear day, offers a spectacular view of Hawai'i’s highest volcanoes, Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, and during the first few miles runners will experience the dawn chorus of many Hawaiian endemic birds that may include the Apapane, Hawai'i Amakihi, I'iwi (all three are Hawaiian Honeycreepers) Oma'o (Hawaiian Thrush), and Hawai'i Elepaio (a monarch flycatcher). As you run, keep your eyes open for the Nene (Hawaiian Goose) and the 'Io (Hawaiian Hawk), both endangered Hawaiian endemic species. After Volcano at Mile 4.36, the race continues downhill along Volcano Road/Mamalahoa Hwy until Mile 26.06 when runners turn left onto Stainback Hwy to finish in front of the Boy Scouts’ Kilauea Camp.
