Historic Hawaii Foundation will be one of the sponsors of the second annual Honolulu 5K for Kids. We were asked to provide information about some of the historic buildings and sites that are along the route. We decided this was a great opportunity to educate children and their families, so we volunteered to provide the race map and include in it information about all of the historic buildings and sites along the route. The race takes place on Sunday, April 29, 2012. Proceeds from the event will be distributed to the schools based on each individual school’s participation and will be used to help enhance or improve the physical fitness, play and athletic programs within the schools.
The 5K route takes place in downtown Honolulu, passing by multiple historic buildings and landmarks including ‘Iolani Palace, Mission Houses, St. Andrews Cathedral and the Hawaii State Art Museum. In addition to providing a color keepsake map, we are also distributing complementary first-time membership offers to all race participants (estimated around 2,000). The race map includes photos and descriptions for twenty-five historic sites.
The race starts at 6:30 a.m. in front of the State Capitol and the finish line is at the Honolulu Hale Building. Historic Hawaii Foundation will have a table at the event located by the finish line. The average race time is one hour and the awards ceremony begins at 8:30 a.m. The online registration fee is $20.00 before April 25, mail entries are $25, and late registration is $35.
