Thank you to all participants for making the Aiea Loop Express 6.5+ miler a great success! It was a beautiful day, the trail was pristine, 103 enthusiastic runners gave it their all, and 23+ fantastic volunteers made it all work. Everyone out there was a winner, taking away with them pride of achievement, new trail buddies, laughs, tall stories, and a goody bag with treats and coupon from Uloha Outdoor Store. Six lucky finishers also received a $25 Uloha gift card from HURT Inc.
Congratulations to our podium finishers, who received a beautifully engraved wooden plaque:
