Sharron Faff, is the new race director and owner for the Kona Marathon
After months of speculation and rumors of new ownership for next year’s Kona Marathon Events, the word is finally out — it is true.
This week Sharron Faff, who has been at the helm for the popular running events over the last decade, confirmed that she has finally “passed the torch” and is now able to publicly talk about it.
“I feel very good about passing the Kona Marathon on to someone who I feel is very capable of being able to take it to new levels,” Faff said. “And also, to someone young and who has a lot of ambition to really put a lot of energy behind it.”
Entering as the new race director and owner for the Kona Marathon, which is typically held in the month of June, will be Brent Imonen.
For Imonen, a former Hawaii professional triathlete, competitive swimmer and elite runner, taking the reins for the Kona Marathon Events won’t be a new endeavor or his only stint – he brings plenty of expertise with him from Oahu.
