One of the most spectacular features of The Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon is the stunning ocean front finish in Poipu. For the 2017 event, we are excited to announce that our finish line festivities will be held on the luxurious grounds of the Koloa Landing Resort at Poipu. Koloa Landing is located on Hoonani Road and provides the perfect backdrop and amenities for participants and their families as they finish their adventure in paradise. Finish line activities include the full and half marathon awards ceremonies, as well as tasty food, ice-cold refreshments and live entertainment until the early afternoon.
Overall Course Impact of Finish Line Change:
- Start line festivities will remain the same at Poipu Shopping Village
- Parking will be available along Kiahuna Plantation Drive, as well as on Poipu Road just like past events and shuttles will be provided from the finish line
- The actual start line will be moved .2 of a mile back to accommodate the change for the finish to be located at Koloa Landing. What this means for participants is that they will line up .2 of a mile west on Poipu Road for the start of the 2017 Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon
