One of Mauis best-attended fun runs, the Pacific Whale Foundations 5K and 10K Run for the Whales, will be held Saturday in Makena.
The run will start at 7 a.m. and will begin at the Pacific Lawn at the Maui Prince Hotel. The course travels toward Wailea and is rated moderate and very scenic.
Divisions include 19-under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over.
The race is a benefit for Pacific Whale Foundations marine education programs for Mauis schoolchildren.
Last year, more than 12,000 Maui schoolchildren learned about Hawaiis marine life through these experience-based, hands-on science programs.
Registration in advance is $20. The fee on the day of the race is $25. Registration is at 6 a.m.
You also can register or volunteer by calling (808) 879-8860, the information hotline for the race.
