New Trail Half Marathon and 5K race: Gunstock Ranch October 30!

Cow only I have learned of a couple of new trail races up at Gunstock Ranch near Laie and Malaekahana. The races will be held on October 30 starting at 7:00 a.m. This is a great opportunity to get out on some new trails and enjoy the property up at Gunstock Ranch. Entry fee is reasonable at $35 for the half marathon and includes a shirt. 

First place man and woman win a two-night stay at Turtle Bay. 

More info can be found at the race web site here.

Info on the ranch itself is here.

These races are timely tune-ups for either the Honolulu Marathon or the XTERRA Trail Run World Championships. 

Get out there and run!

Aloha, Bob

  1. That is such a beautiful area. I remember gazing inland as we ran past Malaekahanana in the late afternoon. The ranch lands were pristine. It will be a real gift to run that land.

  2. I developed the courses for both the 5K and the Half–the races are a fundraiser for Gunstock’s 4H Club. They’re going to be great fun!
    I’ll put up the course maps soon. For the Half, total elevation gain is 1183 ft, and total loss is 1173 ft. Excellent trail running, with cows and cow pies to keep everyone on their toes! (Don’t wear your new shoes for sure.)
    Check the Web site for full course descriptions. Please let me know if you have any questions.
