  1. Good afternoon,

    I can only see the stats from 1973 to 2021. How big was your 2022 Honolulu live marathon? 2022-men and women stats. Is the price for 2022, the same for 2023? I am already registered to receive updates for your marathon race. Thank you for your help!

  2. Hi,

    What was the 2022 registration fee for US residents and international runners? Do your event offer early registration fee?
