Aka`ula Race Results

The second race in the three-race Molokai cross-country run series was held Saturday, October 2 on the 3.5 mile Coffee’s of Hawaii course. Field size was small with seven runners taking on the off-road challenge. The mid-course hill served again as the determining factor in final result positions. This time however, it was not the uphill portion, but rather the return run back down and around that separated the runners. The runs are being organized by myself, Luke, and Tanner Mosher, to fundraise for our school trip to Japan in the spring with Aka`ula School.
