Thank you for holding this virtually. It's been one of the things I had resigned to never be able to do b/c of such awful knees over the years. You guys are making this possible. For someone who will never be able to run walk shuffle for more than 6 miles at a time, I really appreciate this structure. I will be able to cross this off my bucket list.

Thank you very much for your timely and efficient processing of this. And mahalo for allowing us the opportunity to do this virtual marathon. It's been fun!!

I just wanted to thank you for putting on an amazing virtual event this month. I completed the Half Marathon single day event from my treadmill but honestly felt like I was part of something large and wonderful.

I also just got my virtual certificate of completion of my first marathon and am thrilled and feel so accomplished! My mom who passed a few years ago ran 6 Honolulu marathons and I used to think one day I’ll do one, like mom. But as the years passed and kids came the dream slipped away. But this year with the multi-day option I actually was able to make one of my life long dreams come true!! I completed a marathon!! Mom would be proud.

Thanks again for making it possible and so easy to do, track, submit and complete. All my evidence was verified and accepted in less than a day! You guys really are awesome. Mahalo for making this possible!!

I loved participating in ALL of the races and your organization did a fantastic job.

This has been a wonderful event and I'm amazed how quickly you were able to turn this Marathon into a virtual which enabled Theresa in Florida and my sister and her husband in Kansas to complete their first Marathon ~ very exciting for all of us!

Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy a bit of Hawaii through the virtual Hapalua races. The Doble family and friends, aged 10 to 79 years, joined together to feel like we were in Hawaii for the moment and hope to be able to visit again as soon as travel permits. The event was well organised and maybe you should continue the virtual events even when you are able to run the actual event. A Big Mahalo to all the volunteers and organisers.
