A Note From The Race Director
Join Pacific Whale Foundation for the annual Run and Walk for the Whales, one of Maui's largest fun runs and walking events. Choose from the 5K run, 10K run, half marathon run and 2.5 mile fun walk. The Run and Walk for the Whales course begins and ends at a new location -- alongside Ma’alaea Harbor at the Ma’alaea Harbor Shops. The easy-to-follow courses are mostly flat and fast, good news for runners seeking to PR -- and - you might even see a whale or two breaching in the distance! The post-race festivities take place in the plaza at the Ma'alaea Harbor Shops and include live entertainment by Marty Dread; a post-race continental breakfast for runners served by Porto; tours of Pacific Whale Foundation’s research lab, education center and offices; and discounted whalewatches for race participants. All proceeds from the event support Pacific Whale Foundation's humpback whale research in Hawaii and other parts of the Pacific, marine education programs for local schoolchildren, as well as conservation programs including efforts to keep marine debris out of our oceans, prevent vessel-whale collisions and end whaling worldwide. The entry fee includes professional chip timing for runners in the 5K, 10K and half marathon, plus clock timing for all walking events. Each walker and runner will receive a “Run and Walk for the Whales” quick dry t-shirt. Water and Gatorade aid stations will be located along the course.
