If you finished our marathon in 2012 and would like to add your comment on Marathon Guide just go to their link to do so. 

Here is what Mr Shank had to say about our home town race:

Well organized, beautiful small town feel race (about: 2012)
Course: 5 Organization: 5 Fans: 4
Clyde Shank from Texas (4/2/12)
50+ previous marathons | 1 Big Island International Marathon

Wayne ‘Big Dog’ and his team of wonderful volunteers put on a real nice down home small town marathon. Very scenic beautiful surroundings layered in waterfalls and rolling ocean views for the first 10 miles. One of the coolest marathons in Hawaii since it gets 5x the annual rainfall of what we get in Dallas, Texas. Great atmosphere and personal attention really set this one apart

  1. Thank you, Wayne Joseph, Hilo’s “Big Dog”, for putting together another excitingly successful Marathon Run! Thank you for doing this for HIlo, a “pacific town” that is surrounded with so much great beauty.

  2. Yes, the Hilo Marathon is the most beautiful one that I have ever run.
    Organization is fantastic. True Aloha spirit from start to finish.
    Where else can you get Hula dancers to greet you at the finish?
    Highly recommend this marathon to anyone that loves the beauty of the islands.
