‘Haena to Hanalei’ on Saturday

The 35th annual Haena to Hanalei run is set for Saturday.

The eight-mile race put on by the Hanalei Canoe Club begins at Kee Beach and finishes at Black Pot Beach. There will be free shuttles leaving from the Hanalei Pier from 4:45 a.m. to 5:45 a.m. The race begins at 7 a.m.

The scenic North Shore course includes some tough climbs in the first four and a half miles before runners can enjoy a nice downhill stretch before the final few flat miles.

The run will be followed by an awards ceremony and a pancake breakfast.

There is a 5K run at 7 a.m. that starts and finishes at Black Pot Beach. There will also be a one-mile youth run.

About 700 runners took part in last year’s race, which is one of the island’s longest-running sporting events.

The forecast is for mostly sunny skies with scattered showers.

Cost is $35 preregistered, $45 day of race, which includes breakfast. The youth race is $10. Online registration closes Thursday.

Additional breakfast tickets can be purchased for non-running friends/family for $7.
