Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person 2021 Maui Marathon has been cancelled and the running event now is going virtual, race officials announced.
Registration now is open for the virtual marathon, half marathon, 4-member marathon relay, 5- and 10-kilometer run/walk. Mileage can be completed at any location in HawaiÊ»i or on the Mainland between April 1 and April 30, 2021.
“Runners are struggling to adjust to the abrupt change in plans but rather than letting the goals of runners go unfulfilled, we are offering a virtual run with all the swag,” race director Jon Emerson said. “As for the full race experience, let’s hope that the virus will be under control and we can have an in person event for 2022.”
Runners have 30 days in April to finish the race they register for, uploading times to the registration website.
Those who had previously signed up for the in-person 2021 Maui Marathon can automatically compete virtually, or have the option to roll over their registration to the January 16, 2022 Maui Marathon. There are no refunds.(01/02/2021) Views: 627 ⚡AMP
