Hydration is important! As far as contingency plans - as I noted at the top of the tread this run is UNSUPPORTED. If you have not trained for a 5K, PLEASE do not decide to go for it that morning! Ms. VanTiki will be on her bike with water, basic first aid, and a cell phone. That is it as far as support - it is up to you to make it back to the hotel on your own.


Mahalo,

Anyone who attempts this does so at their own risk, same as at Tiki Oasis! Anyone who attempts to hit every room party and drink EVERY drink offered does so at their own risk!

Mixing bicycles and runners sounds like a not so great idea.

I'm in! Also, I have to say, I have ran on this path every year at TO, and have never had a problem with the bums (I do see them every time though)....Also, I actually do think this is a pretty run....especially on the bike path! I took the attached photo one year on my run.

I've updated the sign-up list! SO excited about the rum - I mean RUN

Mikala137 - thanks for the photo! It does look like a great course! I'll be running it saturday AM as well to scout it out. Glad to hear good things about the path.

TheKiltedFez, should I add you to the list?

Henrik "VanTiki"

I agree - apologies to those who expressed interest in riding the course instead of running, I'd like to keep this a running only event. The bike path is, of course, free to one and all, I just don't want to have to keep track of bikers and runners. So only runners will be eligible for whatever finisher pendants I'll be putting together. Sorry!

Boo... You are prejudice for those who physically can't run... I'm suing!!! Haha! I can't run and I don't really care... It would have been fun and I would have been careful, but whatever... Have Fun!!!

Why doesn't someone set up a bike challenge too? The path is big enough to support bikers and runners. I would say that bikers could go all the way to the ocean and back pretty easily, and it wouldn't take much to organize.

I would do it but I hate bikers Or I am already signed up to run...

My training for the 5k has begun and it's already helping me get in better shape. Right now I'm able to do just over three miles in 36 minutes. I use my Endomondo program to help me with interval training so I'm still walking and running. My goal is to be able to run a full three miles without walking before Tiki Oasis. This way when I am hung over and exhausted I can finish in a decent amount of time even if it is over 30 minutes.

Thank you so much for this side event! It's great motivation! Yay! <Kermit flail>

You don't have to "Keep Track" of me. I'm a big boy now.

I don't want a pendant or a prize, thanks anyway.

I'll bring water bottles for free cause my bike has a basket and I've got some water on top of the fridge. Just tell me how many waters you want, it's easy.

I promise not to run over anybody. My bike isn't motorized so this shouldn't be a problem. Promise.

My bike is cool and everybody's going to say "Hey! You have a cool bike!"

I may give out pendants that look better than YOUR pendants to just the bike riders. If I'm the only bike rider then I get them all!!!!!
