Maui, baby! Doesn’t get much better than a Run on the islands!

There is something so worth discovering great destination races. I popped over to the islands to meet with the race director of the Maui Marathon and work out the details for timing their event. Chosen because it has the same flare that the Moorea Marathon in Tahiti has…not just a race, but a festively native theme sandwiched between surf, sunsets, resorts, and good food. Yum. Mahi Mahi smothered in vanilla, coconut sauce. Macadamia nut, powdered sugared pancakes. Miles and miles of running along the beach. A full marathon, run point to point from on end of the island to another. An out and back half marathon run along sparkling sea and white, sandy, palm tree-lined beaches. Oh my. And to top it off. A 5k and one Mile cheered event in town.

The race director, Rudy, has spent a career competing, coaching, and training as a track decathlete. He puts on key track training clinics, is part of the Hawaii Elite Track Team, and also stages another island race that runs from the misty, lush Ono Valley down to the sea on Maui. This half marathon, 5k, 10k is held March 26, 2011. http://www.valleytothe seahalfmarathon.com. This is another great excuse to run on the island.
