The Maui Marathon was first run in 1970. It is highly regarded and is considered to be one of the world's most scenic marathon courses. There is also a Maui Half Marathon run on the same day. Both races form part of the Maui Marathon Race Weekend.



Maui Marathon Route
The marathon course is a point-to-point race, from Kahului to Kaanapali. This 26.2-mile race is highly thought of for its scenery, being regarded as one of the ten most scenic marathons in the United States. It is also the oldest consecutively run marathon in Hawaii. A major section of the course runs within 50 feet of the ocean, providing spectacular coastal views.

The Maui Marathon starts in Kahului, at Ho'okele Street near Hana Hwy. The route is predominantly flat, leading runners in a slight downward slope towards the ocean. Passing the volcano Mt. Haleakala at mile 6 followed soon after by the Maui Ocean Center the route leads into an undulating section taking in an old navy bombing range and extinct volcanic crater.

After the hills runners enjoy a flat run along the coast until mile 22. Passing along Highway 30, interesting sights include hula dancers and spectacular views of the surrounding islands.

The final 4 miles brings the race through local villages. Leaving the coast runners are directed to the historic ex-whaling village of Lahaina, then onto the famous Kaanapali Resort and the finish line in Whalers Village.
