The Hapalua Half Marathon in Honolulu has a unique format known as “The Chase,” a race of local runners against some of the best in the world. The race begins near The Duke Kahanamoku statue in Waikiki and finishes in Kapiolani Park. The Chase consists of multiple staggered starting waves beginning with three waves of women chosen to be on Team Hawaii, followed by three waves of the men selected for Team Hawaii. The final start includes the general public, military and, in this year’s race, three professional athletes. The first to the line wins.
