  1. Aloha,
    This was my first Hilo Marathon and I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for all the work you put into this. I would love to have any pictures of me that you might have. I was number 9.

  4. How nice to give the photos away for free.
    Usually they ask runners to pay! Nice aloha touch!
    Great Race..Hope people sign up early for the 2011 race because I know this marathon closes after it reaches its maximum!

    • I remember John Edwards as I thought his name reminded me of someone 🙂 And I know I have a photo of him in the more than 600 that were taken. Glad you asked for it and I’ll be happy to send it along.

      Aloha and say hi to John for me!

  12. Hey Wayne,

    My wife and I ran the full marathon (#96 & #97) and would love some pictures if you can find time to round them up. We had a very good time and both the weather conditions and volunteers at the aid stations were great!

    Thanks again,
