Press Release: Honolulu Marathon Exhibits at the Two Men and A Tent Health and Fitness Expo in London Ontario

July 23, 2011

President/CEO of the Honolulu Marathon, James Barahal, is excited to be part of the Rock the Road’s inaugural race weekend by occupying a booth at the Two Men And A Tent Health and Fitness Expo (Rock the Road 10K Race Kit Pick-up location).

The Honolulu Marathon is known for its spectacular views, early start time (5:00 AM), and for attracting over half their registrants from Japan (over 14,000 runners, 61% of total participation). We asked Barahal if he was looking to form this type of relationship with Canadians. His response: “We would love to see more Canadians participate in the Honolulu Marathon. It’s a great destination marathon and a wonderful warm weather escape for Canadian runners of all abilities”. According to Barahal, runners are encapsulated by the Aloha spirit as they run through beautiful scenery and into the unique festival atmosphere at the Kapiolani Park finish area.

Rock the Road 10K Race Director, Brandon Laan, completed graduate school in Honolulu and debuted in the marathon event at the Honolulu Marathon in 2009 finishing fifth in a time of 2:25. According to Laan, “Much of what we are working to accomplish with the Rock the Road 10K is modeled after the excellent racing scene I experienced in Honolulu. The Aloha spirit and community support is truly incredible and creates the optimal racing conditions for athletes of all abilities.”
Barahal says he has witnessed Laan achieve success in other running endeavors where he has applied his passion, enthusiasm, flair, and deep knowledge of the sport. For this reason Barahal is confident that the inaugural Rock the Road 10K will be a great running experience as well.
