    I ran the 50K on day 3 of the Mainly Marathons Aloha series in 2019. The course consisted of an out and back that was a total of 2.2 miles. The 50K runners had to do this 14 times plus one shorter out and back to bring the total up to 31 miles. The out and back was along a concrete bike path that ran along adjacent to the shoreline at Kapa’a Beach Park on Kauai, HI. It might sound boring to have to run this 14 times, but the scenery was beautiful and there were all kinds of tourists and locals to watch, along with many species of birds. Some of the birds that I was able to identify included Zebra Doves, which were everywhere, a small, chestnut brown, bird called the Black-headed Mannikin, Red-crested Cardinal, a species of shorebird that I wasn’t able to identify, Common Mynas, Cattle Egrets, and one Albatross.

    I only gave the race a 4 out of 5, because I would prefer to run longer loops. Also, I gave the race production a 4 out of 5 because I didn’t feel that the aid station was up to their usual standards, probably because they couldn’t bring their usual caravan of trailers with them to Hawaii, and so didn’t have their “Looney Lunchbox” kitchen. I thought that they could have ordered pizza from a local restaurant or other local food to supplement the snacks that were offered. They also ran out of t-shirts in my size because of an unexpected high number of runners that signed up for the 5K on the days of the races.

    I hope I’m not coming off as being too critical, because I’m just trying to tell it as it was. I really had a good time, and met a lot of really nice friends. One of the runners even let me use their shower because I was flying out the same day as my race so I could be back at work on Monday. If I could, I would give the race an overall rating as 4.5 and would do it again if I ever have the chance to go back.
