Run Around Oahu 2018
May 25, 2018 - May 26, 2018
The Run Around Oahu is back for 2018! This year’s event has been moved from the fall to the start of Memorial Day Weekend on 25-26 May to accommodate military orders season for our runners as several runners will be leaving Oahu later in the summer. As in the last four island runs, this year’s event will again benefit the Semper Fi Fund, a 501(c)(3) charity that provides much need additional care and resources to service members wounded in combat, critically ill or catastrophically injured.
The relay event will feature 16 runners, running two at a time for three miles, and switching out to the next team, and so on until the cycle makes a full rotation, and is repeated until the 135 mile outer loop of Oahu is complete. These runners will be awake for nearly 24 hours and individually running 18-22 miles total each. Filled with spectacular views, bound by team unity, and fueled by the support of donors like those of you viewing this page, we can make this another fun and successful event for this wonderful organization.
Every donation, every like, and every share is greatly appreciated and we are so grateful for your support. The fundraising page closes on June 1st for anyone who may be traveling for the holiday weekend and would like to sponsor a runner post-run.
Mahalo and Semper Fidelis!
