Thousands of runners from Hawaii and beyond are gearing up for the Hapalua — Hawaii’s Half Marathon.
The race starts in Waikiki, takes runners through downtown and back to Waikiki, and includes some challenging hills before finishing at Kapiolani Park.
About 8,000 runners will participate, with 2,000 coming from out of state.
The event is expected to provide an economic boost to Hawaii, but motorists should expect road closures on the race route from about 4 am to 10 am on Sunday.
Drivers are advised to plan accordingly and expect some delays.
Despite the inconvenience, organizers are excited about the event and its potential impact on the local economy.
