Firecracker Race Fine Print:

Kaena Point is a fast, flat, out-and-back course that parallels the ocean along jeep trails and an old sugar cane rail line. The course runs from the end of the pavement at Mokuleia past Dillingham Airfield and Camp Erdman, to where the pavement begins again on the Waianae coast side at Yokohama Bay. We will have an aid station with water set up at the turnaround, however, we will require ALL runners to carry adequate water (at least one 20 ounce bottle) during the run. It is hot out there and there is not much shade. Don't forget sun protection!

Driving Instructions:  From the North Shore, follow the signs to Mokuleia or Waialua. Follow Farrington Highway past Dillingham Airfield and Camp Erdman. After that, you will come to Kaena Point State Park on your right.

Please contact one of the race directors below with any questions or IF INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING – we are still in need of fun-loving volunteers to help make our race an enjoyable experience for all the racers!

Happy Trails and Happy 4th of July!!
