6th Annual Maui 5K Raises Funds for School Athletics
The 6th annual Maui 5K takes place on Sunday March 5, 2017 at 7 a.m. at the Māʻalaea Triangle. Proceeds from the event will be distributed back to the participating schools to be used to enhance or improve the school’s physical fitness, play and athletic programs.
There will be a timed 5K race and a fun, untimed 1 Mile Run/Walk for both keiki and adults. A ‘virtual run’ option is also available.
According to the event website, “The Maui 5K seeks to promote health and fitness for Hawaiʻi’s children by giving our schools the ability to increase participation in youth sports and recreation programs by providing additional funds to maintain or purchase new equipment for their physical fitness, play and athletic programs. We want to help our schools to be able to keep our children healthy through an active lifestyle. We also seek to promote fitness within our communities through participation by friends and families of our children.”
The entry fee is $30 per person for the 5K run and $25 per person for the 1Mile run/walk. Online registration will close at midnight March 1, 2017. Late registration at packet pick up is $35 per person
