2008 Honolulu Marathon Early Sign-up

Post  Runner on Sun May 04, 2008 12:58 am

Aloha folks,

The 2008 Honolulu Marathon will be coming through our neighborhood this year! If you did it last year, check your mail for the discounted early registration forms. For everyone who is thinking about doing it (C'mon folks!) Niketown in Waikiki has special early registration this weekend May 3 and May 4 from 10 AM to 8 PM.


Updated 5/08/08

I'll be picking up early Kama'aina registration forms tomorrow. The entrance fee is $30. Can I get a show of hands who might be interested? I can leave the forms in the mailroom over the weekend. Early registration for this year's marathon is until May 31, after which the entrance fee goes up about $100. So sign up while you can!

Just got my reg forms in the mail this weekend... 2008 sign up was delayed because of the timing chip fiasco caused by heavy rainfall during last year's marathon. Can't believe they jacked up the price of early sign up by 100% this year! You'd think they would offer a discount after the recent snafu... Oh well, time to make use of the gym downstairs =)

I did it in 2006 and I swore never again! Almost 7 1/2 hours of pure hell! Stopped off at McDonald's in Hawaii Kai halfway because I was so famished... Sorry, don't mean to dissuade anyone here. But I just couldn't walk for a week. Now that I live so close to the starting line, I might cheer on everyone else who is brave (crazy) enough to do it!

Hey lava,

Glad you enjoyed yourself =p I remember doing it for the first time... TOUGH AS HELLl! 26.2 miles is not a distance to be trifled with. If you're just interested in running for fun, Nike Town has a weekly run every Wednesday at 6 PM. Tons of refreshments and a great way to socialize with other athletes. In fact, I'll post it as another topic. There is also a Saturday run at 9 AM, but I usually miss it due to prior engagements, i.e. sleeping.

They have random electronic checkpoints throughout the course so you probably won't get an official time, but it's so chaotic and laid back at the finish line that if you have your numbered bib, they probably won't give you a hard time with the shirt. Not that I would encourage anyone to pick up a 'Finisher Shirt' without actually finishing the course =)

May 31 Deadline

Post  Runner on Thu May 15, 2008 10:30 pm

Hey folks, remember to turn your forms in by May 31! Is anyone going to the pre-race luau? I remember the food being just so-so for the 2006 Marathon, but at least you could watch Gavin DeGraw performing at the Waikiki Shell while you ate.

Hey Cheryl,

I placed all the forms in the mailroom a couple weeks ago. If there aren't any, you can still pick up forms at NikeTown in Waikiki.
