What did Santa give you for Christmas? A few extra pounds? Well, start your year with a healthy and fun activity that all ages can enjoy. Where else can you live healthy and support a sustainable ancient Hawaiian fishpond at the same time? Sign up for the Sunday, March 18, 2018 first annual Loko Ea 8K Fun Run and Walk! Participants can choose between the 8K course or the 1-mile Walk in the Park.

The 8K run/walk starts from Hale‘iwa Beach Park to Kaiaka Bay Beach Park and back. 8K participants will also enter the old “Police Beach” and see where TV shows/movies such as Lost, Hawaii Five-O, and Jurassic World were filmed. After the finish line, enjoy entertainment, food booths, lucky number prize giveaways, and more! Sign up early to receive a unique finisher medal and t-shirt.

Proceeds benefit the educational and community programs of Malama Loko Ea Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and Wanana Paoa, the North Shore’s own double-hulled sailing wa‘a (canoe).
