Thank you for making running a part of your healthy lifestyle.  Caren Ware Events gives you a FUN-FILLED reason to... RUN!  Come join the camaraderie.

LET'S DEDICATE THIS YEAR's RACE to feeling all that was lost in the fires on Maui.  We have a history of timing the FRONT STREET MILE in Lahaina. And have  timed for many years , the MAUI MARATHON.   We have close ties with the runners on that island, fitness gyms, coaches and Islanders, having timed Valley to the Sea and other remote half marathons. May we feel and preserve all that Hawaiian culture and its beautiful islands offer us.  We will take proceeds from this race and help running clubs on the island of MAUI be encouraged to BUILD BACK.
