The Marathon Starts in Wailea and runs along the oceanfront
to Kamehameha Iki Park near the Banyan Tree in Old Lahaina Town.
26.2 miles of whales, beautiful oceanfront and mountain vistas.
As its name suggests, the Maui Oceanfront Marathon, Half Marathon, 15K Run & 5K gives runners the chance to run along the oceanside highways of the windswept western coast of Maui, one of Hawaii’s most popular travel and beach resort destinations.
Fast and mostly flat throughout, with a few rolling hills along the 6.5-mile out-and-back course that those running the half cover twice, the half marathon is run at sea level, with views of whales and surfers on the waves out in the ocean just off the coast of Maui.
Though the full marathon starts in Wailea, the half marathon starts and finishes on Front Street in Lahaina, at the finish line where those running the full marathon complete their 26.2 miles. The 13.1-mile course for the half takes runners from Lahaina southeastward along the beachfront, along Front Street and Honoapiilania Highway, down to the turnaround point just past Olowalu and Kailiili Beach.
