Hilo Bay 5K Run/Walk 2023

Artwork by Dave Waters

Course Route

We have received approval from the county to again have the race at Liliokalani Gardens.

Run Course

You will make a full loop around the park, then on the second lap go straight ahead past Suisan, turn right at the highway, cross the bridge, run down towards the Canoe Club area to the turn-around sign and come back down Banyan drive and around the park in the opposite direction and thru the finish line. Those who have run this race before, please note that the finish chute is in the opposite direction this year after you run the opposite way around the park.


Walk Course

You will start about 5 minutes behind the runners. You will walk five times around the park in order to complete the 5K distance. Please give right away to the runners as they lap the park and again as they return and loop the park in the opposite direction. You are reminded that walkers are to walk and not run as this is not fair to other walkers. Each time you complete a lap you will get a rubber band of a different color. Once you have collected red, white, blue and black rubber bands, on your next time around you walk thru the finish chute and across the finish line receiving a finish stick with your place number and someone removes the tag on your bib.
