5K family fun run/walk in Kaaawa Valley

Kaaawa Valley with Puu Ohulehule beyond

This morning was perfect for the “1st Annual Kaaawa Elementary School Ocean Warrior 5K Family Fun Run/Walk” in Kaaawa Valley, a short ways down the road from the studio. The film industry uses this location for movies and TV shows. This is the beautiful place where Miss Marvelous’s parents wed.

Many thanks to the Kaaawa Elementary School PTO Committee and Kualoa Ranch for coordinating a successful community event. The entry fee bought access to the course trails, the event t-shirt, a bottle of water, and a coupon for 50% off of three different activities at Kualoa Ranch. Shave ice, spam musubi, cotton candy, music, and the great outdoors made for a great party!

We could have brought Alice Brown and Pua (guest dog), as plenty of other people brought their canines, and the event folks offered free poop bags, but, alas, we had left the pooches home. I brought my easel and took the opportunity to sketch out a new painting of the vista. Miss Marvelous was among the youngest entrants to show off her new walking skills. Congratulations, Kaaawa! Everyone had a good time!

Thanks for stopping by. According to Dave of the PTO, “The event will be on April 9th, this year. Application forms will be coming out at the end of this week.” They will be available at the school.

Aloha – We have family in Kaaawa and have members who attended this school. I am visiting in late March early April. Will there be a “2nd” annual 5k? I would love to attend with my family if it is first week of April. Mahalo.
