Honolulu police reopened part of Kalanianaole Highway as most of the runners in the Honolulu Marathon cleared the area.

Roads along the Honolulu Marathon route, including part of Kalanianaole Highway,were closed as about 23,000 runners participate in the annual race that began at 5 a.m.

The east-bound H-1 freeway was reopened by about 9:30 a.m. after runners passed through the area on their way to Hawaii Kai.

Just before noon, police said they are moving the remaining runners to the sidewalk and reopened Kalanianaole Highway between Keahole and Hawaii Kai Drive.

The marathon route runs along Ala Moana, to Nimitz Highway, right onto Nuuanu Avenue, right onto King Street, right onto Kapiolani Boulevard, right onto Piikoi Street, left onto Ala Moana Boulevard, right onto Kalakaua Avenue, left onto Monsarrat Avenue, right onto Paki Avenue, left onto Diamond Head Road, right onto 18th Avenue, right onto Kilauea Avenue, right onto Waialae Avenue, to the H-1 Freeway (eastbound), to Kalanianaole Highway (all lanes makai/ocean side), left onto Hawaii Kai Drive, right onto Keahole Street, right turn back to Kalanianaole Highway (westbound), left onto Kealaolu Avenue, right onto Kahala Avenue, to Diamond Head Road, left onto Kalakaua Avenue to the Finish Line at Kapiolani Park.

The SA website is useless as a community resource. At least they could re-publish the start times or show a visual of the race map or give a link to where one could get such information.

"...or give a link to where one could get such information." Which is why God invented Google (or if you want to browse anonymously use duckduckgo).

Give the marathon runners until noon, then reopen all roads. Six and a half hours is more than enough time to finish the course. For the rest of the stragglers/walkers, they can use the sidewalks. I've run the marathon once, I'm not good at it, but it took me a little more than four and half hours.
