SAN DIEGO, Sept. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Events.com, a leading global event management platform, announced today that it has added the annual Hawai'i Pacific Health Great Aloha Run to its growing list of clients.
The Great Aloha Run, recognized by Runner's World Magazine as one of the top "100 Great Road Races," is an 8.15-mile race that begins at Aloha Tower and finishes in the Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. The running event features divisions for elites, age groups, wheelchair and hand-cycle competitors, Sounds of Freedom (military running in formation) and those who want to walk the course.
Featuring 22,000 participants, there's a place for everyone in the Great Aloha Run. The race gets its Hawaiian name, "Ke kukini me ke aloha pau'ole," from this inclusive philosophy—the race with compassionate love.
Over the past 35 years, the Great Aloha Run has raised more than $12 million for over 150 non-profit health and human service organizations and community groups throughout Hawaii.
