Maui to Molokai Challenge 27 miles from DT Fleming to Kaunakakai Harbor
The Molokai Holokai Ho'olaule'a is a 2-day festival on the island of Molokai hosted by Youth in Motion and the Stand Up Paddle Association of Molokai.
The race line up includes:
MAUI TO MOLOKAI CHALLENGE- MOLOKAI HOLOKAI DAY 1 Friday 8th July, 2022
KAMALO RUN (MOLOKAI HOLOKAI-DAY 2) Sat 9th July 2022
The main purpose of the event is to celebrate and inspire our youth in all that they do. We are celebrating our 20th year since we started our celebration of Youth. We are not the typical race and have never had that intent since the concept in 2003. Instead the focus is on our youth to inspire and motivate them and their families to be the best they can be. Come join us with this event and be part of the movement to inspire our Youth as they deserve a celebration.
The Fridays event starts from DT Fleming Beach on Maui with racers crossing the Pailolo Channel in a 27 mile distance race open to all paddle craft and some wind craft.
The Maui to Molokai Race is our vehicle to come and celebrate our Youth and get to know our community.
As the race is starting on Maui there will be SUP/canoe experience/demo/clinics on Molokai along with a Mangrove and Gorilla Ogo clean up service project. Prizes to the one who collects the most mangrove seeds, a non-native and invasive vegetation as well as Gorilla Ogo. All Gorilla Ogo and Mangrove seeds needs to be bagged for weigh in.
The Saturday's race is an 10 mile downwinder from Kamalo Harbor to Molokai Community Health Center located at the harbor. There will also be a s range of other courses from the 3/4 mile, 2 mile, 4 mile and 5 mile to the Health Center. The 3/4 mile race for the Keiki and Makua.
The Molokai Holokai Ho'olaule'a is a 2-day festival on the island of Molokai. A super fun weekend for all levels from the serious racer, to the recreation and something for the whole family to enjoy!
