Covid 19 Race Information and Race Procedures Details

  1. Covid-19 Race Information and Race Procedures Details

  2. As of October 27th, The Maui Oceanfront Marathon is still on for January 17, 2021.

  3. We think the odds are 50-50 that MOM will be run officially, but we must plan now if it is to occur. 

  4. Covid-19 infections are very low on Maui, maybe the best in the country.

  5. We understand the Mayor of Maui will not make a decision for any event until 30 days out.

  6. Presently visitors to Maui will not have to do the 2-week quarantine if they test negative for the Covid-19 test within 72 hours before arrival on Maui.

  7. Read the latest official Hawaii Covid-19 travel restrictions and procedures.

  8. If we have to cancel because of Covid-19,  your registration will automatically be moved 

  9. over to next year's event, but note there are no refunds.

  10. If you are registered and wish to transfer to next year’s MOM you may do so at any time without penalty.

  11. Another option is to request your MOM registration be transferred to the Lake Tahoe Marathon event for next October. That will take special attention.

  12. If you are concerned about receiving a refund, wait until later before registering for MOM.

  13. Next year's MOM is Sunday, January 16, 2022

  14. Again, there will be no refunds, so if a refund is an issue, do not register until late in the game.

  15. The airlines are allowing free reservation changes so  you don't have to worry about that.

  16. When you book a hotel, be sure there is no penalty for cancelling. Most hotels allow that now. But watch out for private rentals or VRBO type rentals which may not give refunds.

  17. Race Procedures for Covid-19 (subject to changes)

  18. This is what we are planning at the moment.

  19. To help avoid unnecessary crowds of runners, race bibs will be mailed to you about 10 days before the race.

  20. You will have a chance to update your mailing address before the bibs are mailed out.

  21. Maybe choose to have them mailed to your hotel on Maui

  22. If all else fails, pick up your late registration bib  at the starting line of your race.

  23. All races will have a starting window rather than a mass start with the start windows schedule TBA.  

  24. You will cross the timing mat when you are ready to start. Those who want to win the race will start together (socially distanced) at the advertised start time.  


  26. All runners will wear masks until after the start of the race.

  27. A fresh mask will be given to each runner when you cross the finish line along with your finishers medal.

  28. There will not be age division awards this year because of Covid-19.

  29. Paper cups will not be used at the aid stations. Bring your water bottle and you may refill it at the aid stations with water or Gatorade.

  30. Runners will also receive an 8oz bottle of water by picking it up off the aid station tables.

  31. There will be no food/nutrition at the aid station.

  32. It is advisable to have a support crew to follow you on the marathon course and finish line to help supply you with nutrition other than water and Gatorade.

  33. We may not be allowed to have buses take you to the start line, so support crew will be important.
