‘Runnin’ with Rani’ clarification
Because of a computer glitch, part of Rani Henderson’s “Runnin’ with Rani” Friday column was garbled.
The end of the column should have read:
With another quiet weekend here on the Big Island, a handful of our local athletes will be heading over to Oahu where three historic events will be taking place; the Tantalus Triple Trek Saturday, the Dick Evans Memorial Road Race on Sunday and the 44th Annual Waikiki Rough Water Swim (today).
Wishing all the best of luck— and as Dick Evans would say, “Race brave!”
Coming up on Sept. 8, we have a triple-header starting off with the 17th annual Run For Hope at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai.
The non-competitive 10K and 5K run/walk will kick off at 7 a.m. followed by a light breakfast and door prizes.
A minimum $25 donation includes a T-shirt if registering prior to the event; $30 the day of the event.
All proceeds benefit cancer research in Hawaii. Call 325-8052 for registration details.
Also on Sept. 8 — at 8:03 a.m.— Frozen Pea Productions will host The Wee and DLT Whirled Peas Biathlon, a 3/4-mile swim followed by a 3.9-mile run at Kaiakeakua Beach next to the Kailua Pier. The event is free, with a short Pea Wee course available for the little ones.
That same day on the Hilo side, Big Island Road Runners will hold the Hilo Bay 5K and 10K Road Races at 7:30 a.m.
The race starts at Reed’s Bay Park, and registration details can be found at bigislandroadrunners.org.
