The Great Aloha Run (GAR) has accomplished and achieved many milestones in its 32-year history. It was the first largest first-time running event in the State of Hawaii with over 12,000 individuals signing up for the event in its very first year. The Great Aloha Run has also been recognized nationally as one of the top “100 Great Road Races” by Runner’s World Magazine.
The GAR, an 8.15-mile foot race, begins at Aloha Tower and finishes inside Aloha Stadium and is held each year on President’s Day, this year that is February 20, 2017.
