The 38th Annual Hawaii Pacific Health Great Aloha Run (GAR) is VIRTUAL this year. While this means participants will have 4 days to complete the 8.15-mile foot race at any location they choose, at any time between February 18 through February 21, 2022, GAR has announced it will be holding an in-person Drive-Thru Finish Line on February 21, 2022, from 8 am to 2 pm for a limited number of registered participants and their families.
“We are honored to be the last scheduled event to be held at the iconic Aloha Stadium as we say, ‘A Hui Hou Aloha Stadium’,” said Carole Kai. Aloha Stadium is scheduled to begin reconstruction in early 2022.
