About our Location
Bokoa Farms and Forest is a veteran-owned, family farm and forest on the slopes of Mauna Kea, on the Big Island of Hawaii. They practice restorative forestry by reducing the number and effects of invasive plant species, and propagating native and endemic plant species. Specifically, they focus on removing and using strawberry guava, and planting and caring for Koa forests. When you buy the Bokoa Farms products, you support local restorative agriculture, and you protect and restore native forests. When you run this race, you support these efforts.
Entry to the race involves needing a 4wd vehicle or an all wheel drive SUV, please carpool or coordinate your ride accordingly.
How to Prepare
This is a challenging course, and it is not safe to show up without trail training. Each 8 mile loop includes just under 2000 feet of elevation gain. You will run gravel roads, technical trails, and hike up steep climbs. Train hard and prepare to be challenged with a course that features uphill or downhill with very minimal flats.
