Big Island Half Marathon SOLD OUT for second year in a row

For the second year in a row the Big Island International Marathon has sold out of all its Half Marathon slots.

The on line credit card sign up has been closed and applications received by mail, with a postmark later than January 20, 2012 will be returned.

Runners from all over the world have taken advantage of viewing one of the most scenic Half Marathons in the world.

The marathon is also 90 percent full and should sell out within the next three or four weeks.

The 5K run/walk will continue to take entries until a week or so before the March 18 race.

No one will be allowed to switch races and there is no waiting list as the BIIM over sold the Half Marathon by 10 percent.

The 2013 race application will be posted on the www.hilomarathon.org web site soon and people disappointed at missing the 2012 race are encouraged to sign up early for 2013.

  3. I’d like to try the marathon, but if I feel likes stopping at the 1/2 point is that cool? I’m in a 26km trail run on March 10th so I’m not sure if I can finish the whole run. It may be too close to the other race. Alane Vancouver, Canada

  5. Website needs more information. Not everyone lives here. Better course map, finishline detail, location of packet pickup.
