About Maui Marathon and Half-Marathon
Maui Marathon is recognized as one of the most scenic courses in world. The point-to-point route starts in Kahului and passes sugarcane fields and along the Pacific coastline for over 17 miles. The popular Maui Half-Marathon features a flat, out-and-back course that traces the final 6.55 miles of the marathon course. This 13.1-miler starts at Whalers Village in the Kaanapali Beach Resort, passes through Lahaina, turns around at Launiupoko Park and returns to Kaanapali.
Maui is an island destination where you can take pleasure in exploring its beautiful scenery, sleepy towns and some of the world's first class resorts that coexist with Maui’s rich history and culture of Hawaiian mythology.
It takes many partners for the Maui Marathon and Half-Marathon to be successful each year.
