From roadways past moonlit sugarcane fields to pathways bordering the ocean, the Maui Marathon route is recognized as one of the most scenic in the U.S. Celebrating its 40th anniversary on Sept. 19, the point-to-point challenge runs from Kahului in central Maui to Kaanapali on the island’s west side. Clients who take part in the entire three-day weekend event can attend such gatherings as a sports and fitness expo and a carbo-laden luau at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, the race’s headquarters. The Westin — located just a few steps away from the finish line — is listing a special promotion for marathon participants and supporters, with nightly room rates from $249 and the fifth night free.
