Tonight I was looking for a marathon that would make for a great fall getaway. If you like the beach and want to run a marathon in September then the Maui Marathon sounds like a great choice.
This course offers a flat and fast course that was voted one of the 10 most scenic marathons in the United States with a major portion of it being run 50 feet from the Pacific Ocean. In fact, 17 of the 26 miles are run along the oceanfront.
I’m not sure about you but I can’t think of many better ways to recover from a marathon than being able to crash on a sandy beach along the ocean.
The course is a point to point course running from Kaanapali to Kahului.

Have you run the Maui Marathon before? I’d be curious to hear your thoughts about it.
