PERMITS HAVE BEEN DENIED BY HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK
This would be the 30th running of this iconic Maui event starting in Kahului, ending at the top of Haleakala, covering 36.2 miles and 10,023 feet.
This is a high altitude finish on the scenic and surreal mountain of Haleakala on the island of Maui, Hawaii. The course is run on paved roads starting in Kahului then through the old sugar cane field roads and up to the summit of Haleakala.
The 51k or 36.2 mile course is exposed, starting off warm in the early morning and usually dry. The weather will range from warm at the start to breezy and more severe weather at the top of the mountain. We have experienced all weather types, but you can usually expect sunny, cool weather at the top and trade winds at the start. Temperatures usually range from high 70's at the start to mid 50's once you're in the National Park.
