  • The 15K race is a point to point with the start  Papaluau Beach* on Highway 30 about 8 miles south of Front Street and about 1 mile north of the tunnel you will drive through on the way to Lahaina.
  • Check the time line for race start time and shuttle bus schedule.
  • The first 8.3 miles is oceanfront. You will run north against traffic on the shoulder of the road. The Ocean to your left, the rising sun will be at your back, and the west Maui Mountains on your right. The last mile begins at the south end of the beginning of Front Street running along  the quiet picturesque Front Street with oceanfront homes on your left. The finish line is at the oceanfront Kamehameha Iki Park block south of the famous Banyan Tree Square and the Lahaina Yacht Harbor.
  • Note: The start line at Papalaua Beach is listed on some maps as Papalau Beach and also known locally as Grandma's.
