Summer Race Series Announced

By Sue Forbes-Kikukawa/ Aka`ula School New Release

Two enterprising Aka`ula School students, Luke Kikukawa and Tanner Mosher, have decided to initiate a summer race series on Molokai in an effort to raise monies for student travel in the upcoming school year.  The first race in the series is a 5K run from Coffees of Hawaii to the Kalaupapa Lookout. This event will be held on Saturday, June 12, starting at 7 a.m. from Coffees.  Race registration begins at 6 a.m.  (Free fresh-brewed coffee will be available.)  

Entry fee is $10 with prizes awarded to the top three male and female finishers.  In addition, a cash pot prize equal to 10 percent of the total revenue collected will be given to one Lucky Number winner drawn from the list of all 5K “Kalae Hill Run” finishers. 

Additional events slated for this summer series include: a “Swim, then Run the Beach” Papohaku Duathlon on Saturday, July 24; a 16-mile “Molokai Mountain Man” trail run / hike from One Ali`i Park to Waikolu Lookout on Sunday, August 8; and a Stand-Up Surfboard race from “Rice Patch to the Pier” on Sunday, August 15.  For more information on these events, call Sue Forbes-Kikukawa at 553-5740, or Dayna Harris 553-8334.
