If you have a passion for running and want to see the off the beaten path sites of the islands, then run with the various Hash House Harrier's Groups. These HHH groups have been called "the lunatic fringe of running and are alive and well in the Hawaiian Islands. Oahu is home to four or five HHH clubs that run on a regular basis, and Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii has it's own chapter as well. If you like to run off the beaten path, drink beer, and have great comraderie, then come run with one of these groups. They not only run on the Islands of Hawaii, but all over the world. In 2006, these Harrier's will be running at the InterHash in Chiang Mai, Thailand and pre-lube and post-lube hashes in Vietnam (Hanoi), Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Burma, and China. Check out the websites below for further information on times, places, and other general information on these various Hash House Harrier Groups. The hash line (808) 948-HASH will give you to dir4ectio9ns for all this merriment, call or e-mail ahead, someone is sure to pick you up to help you get out to the fun!!

Kukini Nui at Mid-Pac's New Years Day Race
Hawaii is nothing less an active sportsman's paradise with more runners per capita than any desination in the world. And why not? You can run 365 days a year in temperatures that won't give you frost bite. You can breath air that does not smell like you are running behind a bus. You can go for a dip in pristine water at some of the most beautiful beaches to be found anywhere. Multi-colored rainbows and spectacular sunsets bless these islands everyday of the year. The Honolulu Marathon is not the only event that attracts active sportsman and women to Hawaii. Mid-Pacific Road Runners and other sponsors host a variety of shorter races each weekend year round.

Warren and Brother Mike Getting Ready to Climb
Diamond Head, one of the best-known volcanic craters in the world, can be seen from the southeast coast of O'ahu not far from Waikiki. The view from the summit of this 760-foot, extinct crater is well worth the climb. The steep trail to the top is mostly paved and defined by two sets of stairs-one, 99 steps, the other 76 steps. It leads through a 225-foot tunnel and ends with a spectacular view of the island's west side. This is also an excellent spot for whale watching during the winter. Known in Hawaiian as Le'ahi (brow of the ahi-yellowfin tun), Diamond Head was so named when Brttish seamen saw calcite crystals sparkling in the sunshine and thought they'd found diamonds. The volcanic crater, a major O'ahu landmark, has been extinct for 150,000 years. Admission to the park, which is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., is $1. Parking is $5. From Waikiki (Kapiolani Park) to the Diamond Head Entrance is about a 20-30 minute walk.
Address: Scenic; Hiking Trail
Directions: Go up Diamond Head Road at the end of Kapiolani Park and turn left at Triangle Park. Or take Bus 22 or 58 from Waikiki. Bus fare only $2.00.
