BY KATHY HANSBERRY — Sunday, Dec. 11, 2016, roughly 29,000 runners began their day at Ala Moana Boulevard, the start of the 44th annual Honolulu Marathon, and after a grueling 26.2-mile course, ended their day at the race finish at Kapiolani Park.
As Outrigger is the official hotel sponsor, the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort hosted the elite runners including winner, Lawrence Cherono from Kenya, who shattered the course record at 2:09:39. Congratulations to Lawrence and all of this year’s finishers!
Mahalo to #teamOutrigger who greeted weary participants at the Outrigger Hospitality tent: Hitomi and Mike Saunders, Charles and Ayano Naura and Kazu Inakoshi. Special thanks to the masseuses from Ka Moku Ola Oiwi who provided complimentary five-minute massages for the participants.
Hope to see you at next year’s Honolulu Marathon scheduled for Dec. 10, 2017.
