Ka Iwi Coast Run & Walk
August 30, 2015 @ 6:00 am - 9:00 am
The annual Ka Iwi Coast Run & Walk is a community oriented 4-mile journey along the famous Ka Iwi coast scenic highway. The event begins at Awawamalu (known as Sandy Beach) with the rise of the sun over the Kaiwi Channel, a Hawaiian oli (chant) and the blowing of the pu (conch) shell.
Hui Nalu, the “Club of the Waves”, was founded in 1908 by Duke Kahanamoku, Knute Cottrell and Ken Winter. The Club’s mission is to provide educational activities for individuals, families and the community revolving around ocean activities. The coastline is where the ocean we paddle on meets the land we live on and the Kaiwi Coastline is where the paddlers of Hui Nalu Canoe Club spend most of their time.
Race start: 6:15am
Course: Starting at Awawamalu (known as Sandy Beach), the course continues around the Ka Iwi coastline, passes Halona and Hanauma Bay and finishes at the Hui Nalu Canoe Club on the shores of Maunalua Bay.
Uniqueness: This is the only pedestrian race sanctioned for this area of O‘ahu. This special setting allows the race organizers to carefully craft an event that advocates for the pristine, untouched gifts of this coast.
Great Gifts: All participants receive a commemorative glass fishing float, race shirt and packet with discounts to local retail businesses. After your journey, enjoy the light refreshments and awards presentation, and meet community organizations sharing their missions.
Shuttle Service: Free shuttle service provided to the starting line.
Mahalo: Proceeds benefit Hui Nalu Canoe Club programs and supports the mission of the Ka Iwi Coalition and Livable Hawaii Kai Hui. Hui Nalu Canoe Club is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
