    Excellent race, flat for a lot of it, but the road to diamond head was TOUGH! Very beautiful and we’ll organized. I would definitely love to do it again. MORE

    First time to walk this. It’s not timed and there are a lot of walkers. I didn’t train and almost gave up but so many people encouraged me to keep going.

    At the starting line, there are no corrals. I was at the start but at the side on the sidewalk. At the start I was sucked in with the crowd and had to run or I would be trampled. I didn’t warm up and cramped right away. Walked it off until Mile 3. Scared I was going to give up before half a mile.

    Lots of port-a-potty stations and first aid stations. Long lines in the beginning and less as you kept going. The gels and bananas would run out by the time I got to them. Runners get them first.

    The last 5 miles is around Diamond Head so slight uphill climb and downhill descent then about 1/2 mile to finish line.

    The medal and the shirt at the end are awesome. They also had bananas, shaved ice and yummy malasadas at the finish line.
