The course of The Honolulu Rainbow EKIDEN starts at Kapiolani Park and continues alongside the Diamond Head, offering spectacular views of the ocean as runners go through the turning point and return to the finish line at Kapiolani Park. The event will feature teams consisting of 3 to 5 runners who will compete in a relay race, taking over a sash (ribbon lei) to the next teammate as each member completes the same course. Runners can sign up individually as well as in teams. Each lap is 5 km (roughly 3.1 miles) - a manageable distance even for beginners!
