The Honolulu Ekiden Foundation invites you to “Ho‘ohui Pa‘ani” (be “united in play”). Last year, the Foundation brought over 900 runners of all ages together for a marathon relay race and music festival, and once again welcomes runners to register for its 2014 event on June 1. Participants are encouraged to register in two- to six-member teams before April 30 for a reduced entry fee. The registration fee includes participation in the Ekiden race and admission to the nighttime music festival at Waikiki’s Sunset on the Beach. Immediately after the Ekiden, from approximately 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, everyone is encouraged to unwind, relax and recharge as we will continue to “Ho‘ohui Pa‘ani” with a local-style food and entertainment festival. Various vendors will be selling their tasty food and drinks, with Hawaiian and Japanese entertainment (hula, music, ukulele, taiko, etc) at the Waikiki bandstand adjacent to the Ekiden finish line.
