If the number of runners in The Kauai Marathon topped the 2,000 mark, it would not have surprised Jeff Sacchini, the marathon founder.
“We have nearly 1,800 runners registered,” Sacchini said at the start of the Fitness Expo Friday at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa, two days before the race.
Participants in The Kauai Marathon started picking up heir race packets containing valuable run information and the coveted bib.
The Kauai Marathon took place Sunday morning at the Poipu Shopping Village. For the first 11 miles, the 1,800 half and full marathon runners shared the road before the full marathoners took a course west to Lawai and Kalaheo before returning to the finish line just outside the Sheraton Kauai Resort.
