PRINCEVILLE — The ‘Ohana Fit Fest is back this year, scheduled to take place from Sept. 30, and the big community expo and run/walk taking place Oct. 1.
“Event proceeds will be used to help maintain public-access beach, and hiking trails on the North Shore of Kaua‘i,” said Race Director Ken Rosenthal. “This is a fun family event that features an obstacle fun run/walk approximately 5k in distance with a community expo, silent auction, and live entertainment.”
The event is presented by the Kaua‘i North Shore Community Foundation in partnership with the Princeville at Hanalei Community Association and the Princeville Makai Golf Club.
Although the ‘Ohana Fit Fest is scheduled for Oct. 1, early registration pricing for adults and keiki is available now at the knscf.org/fit-fest website.
Registration on race day will be $50 for adults and $20 for keiki 12 years old and below.
Community sponsorships are also welcome with details and information on knscf.org/fit-fest.
Adult registration entitles the run/walker to an ‘Ohana Fit Fest hat and snack. Keiki registrants receive the snack, but no hat.
A pre-race party and race packet pickup will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Princeville Makai Golf Course.
Race day starts with registration from 6:30 a.m., with the runners and walkers leaving the start on a staggered start from 8:30 a.m. The event is scheduled to end by 11:30 a.m.
Runners will be timed and medals awards presented for first, second, and third places in the different age divisions. Walkers will not be timed, and no medals will be awarded.
The ‘Ohana Fit Fest begins and ends at the Prince Albert Park in Princeville and will take run/walkers along the Princeville Path leading to ocean-view holes of the Makai Golf Course.
The jagged figure-8 course returns participants into the Woods Course where athletes will climb, crawl, and test coordination on obstacles before finishing at the Prince Albert Park.
