The 2020 Honolulu marathon has been canceled, the race organizers said on Friday.
"After consulting with all our stakeholders, the City and County of Honolulu, the State of Hawaii and our sponsors, the Honolulu Marathon Association has decided that the appropriate and safest course of action is not to conduct the 2020 Honolulu Marathon, Start to Park 10 and Kalakaua Merrie Mile in December.
We understand that it has been difficult for you to train and to plan trips to Hawaii under these circumstances and we thank you for your patience in waiting for the final announcement.
All registered entrants in the 2020 Honolulu Marathon events, have received a unique code to transfer their entry to our virtual option, the Beachfest. All marathoners will have the option to complete the race over multiple days. Training has been hard this year and we honor the no time limit. You can complete the virtual race any time in December."
