Hula Girl 5K 10K & Half Marathon
Event Details 08/01/2015
About The Race
The Hula Girl Run/Walk races were added to the Wahine (All Women's) Triathlon/Duathlon event to offer more opportunities for the ladies to get out and race! The Hula Girl courses “flow” along Marine Drive – a very fast and flat/”no waves” course with great potential for PRs! Fun for “Girls” of all ages and abilities!
New for 2015 - we added a Half-Marathon to the Hula Girl 5K & 10K options!
There will be live music during the tropical after-race party – be sure to come in your favorite Hula Skirt, wearing a Lei necklace or with a plumeria blossom tucked behind your ear – tutus and costumes encouraged! We’ll even have Sweet Spot Skirts in the expo with colorful, flirty, sports skirts available for sale to add to your island groove! Come join in the Aloha spirit, here in our own "backyard"!

Sponsors & Exhibitors
Our athletes – triathletes, duathletes, runners, walkers, cyclists – are active, educated, middle to high income earners who are committed to their fitness while also supporting our community. They are loyal to brands that support their mission towards a healthy body, mind, spirit and world.
These athletes are strong consumers of:
- Health & Wellness services such as Massage, Physical Therapy, Chiropractic Care, Natural Medicine, Acupuncture, Personal Training and Coaching. They break it down and need you to build it back up again and keep them healthy, fit and strong.
- Bicycles – A Triathlete will often spend more money on their bike and accessories than they do on vital services!
- Running Shoes – Every runner/triathlete recognizes the importance of a good pair of shoes and once they connect and have success with your brand, they become die-hard, loyal customers and brand ambassadors by default.
- Active Gear & Clothing – Runners & Triathletes will spend a lot of money on tights, compression socks, waterproof clothing, running vests, water-proof jackets, hats, and gloves that make them more comfortable and able to endure the elements better. They also love shirts with fun, witty captions!
- Technical Gadgets – Runners & Triathletes are often technological geeks and love GPS systems and downloadable products that allow them to track and analyze their performances
- Energy Drinks, Bars & Jells – Competitive athletes require healthy, quick energy products and when they find the product that works for them, they rarely waiver and again become brand ambassadors and advocates.
- Fast, cool cars – Runners & Triathletes have a need for speed and it’s not limited to their bikes. They love cool, fast, sporty vehicles that allow them to get outdoors!
- Beer & Wine – Yes, serious athletes do enjoy drinking! Isn’t that why they train so hard?!
- Restaurants – They train hard & eat big to refuel. They are often foodies always looking for the next go-to restaurant.
- Financial Services – They are an educated, wealthy group and are smart enough to know they need to develop a plan for their financial future
