Registration opens for obstacle/trail run

Registration is open for the annual Ohana Fit Fest presented by Wilcox Health, a 5K and 10K obstacle trail run/walk. This fun family event is hosted by the non-profit Kauai North Shore Community Foundation, and is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 6.

The start and finish lines, as well as a community expo, will be located at the new Porter Pavilion at Anaina Hou Community Park. Participants will climb, crawl, and test their coordination on obstacles along the way as they run or walk the course on the Wai Koa Loop trail.

“Run the obstacle course and get competitive, or just walk and focus on the fun,” said Ken Rosenthal, board member of the Kauai North Shore Community Foundation and co-director of the Ohana Fit Fest presented by Wilcox Health. “This event is about fitness and fun, even if you’re competitive enough to win one of the beautiful competitor medals.”

Registration is $35 per person. Participants who register by Sept. 15 receive a discount on the registration fee, are entered into a drawing to win $200 in dining at Hideaways Pizza Pub, receive a free event shirt, and get a light snack to help replenish their energy after the competition.

Registration and additional event information are available at

Event proceeds will be donated back to the community.

The Fit Fund was created by the Kauai North Shore Community Foundation to give grants to nonprofits with a focus on health and wellness.

Proceeds of the Fit Fest fund the Fit Fund and priority will be given to those impacted by this year’s natural disasters.
