MPRRC Course: Kailua Beach 4.4-Mile Shark Chase

About the Course

Distance: 4.4mi

IN-PERSON RACE: The race starts at 7:00 a.m. Check-in will begin at 5:45 a.m. in the park.
Start: The Shark Chase will begin on the beach at Kailua Beach Park near the boat ramp. The start line is actually on the beach. Faster runners should move to the front and walkers towards the back to avoid collisions.
Course: Out and back course. The wave-washed course follows the shoreline to a turnaround point near the Kaneohe Marine Corps Base, then back to the start area. The entire course is on the beach. Shoes are optional - you will probably run through some shallow water depending on the tide and your desire to make a splash. There will be a "shark" to chase - the shark gets a head start. Can YOU catch the shark?
Finish: Awards will be presented to the top overall male and female finishers as well as the top three in 5-year age groups.
