Running Advent Calendar – Day 12 – Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

12 Dec

Welcome to Day 12 of my Running Advent Calendar (day by day, I explore a running route from somewhere in the world). Today I will look at Honolulu, Hawaii.

Honolulu

Never having been to Hawaii nor ever having planned a trip there has left me with very limited knowledge of the area. What I do know is that Hawaii is on my ultimate travel bucket list, and I would be very disappointed if I never got the chance to run there.

I think I would be more than content to just run on any one of their gorgeous beaches or within any of their beautiful forests, parks or trails.

Diamond-Head-Hike-Lookout

Runner’s World put together a great list of three running routes in Honolulu, and since I couldn’t narrow it down to just one running route for this post, I wanted to share all three of them as they each seemed to be amazing routes in their own way:

Run 1: Diamond Head (4.8 miles)

Run 2: Ala Moana Park (3 miles)

Run 3: Tantalus Drive (8.2 miles)

    Hawaii looks awesome. I’ve watched several of the Iron Man competitions on TV and the place looks sweet. Hot and sweet! I do have a friend of a friend who lives there. Someday I’m going to ask him if I can sleep on his couch and run a race out there.
