About the EXTERRA Trail Run World Championships:
The XTERRA Trail Run World Championships is considered the crown jewel of trail running, and it takes place at the gorgeous Kualoa Ranch on our island of Oahu once again this year. On December 7th, starting at 9 a.m., the majestic Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii will host the race of a lifetime for many runners and one of the top Honolulu Events this year – the EXTERRA Trail Run World Championships!
More than 2,000 runners from around the world are expected to gather at Kualoa Ranch, on the northeastern side of the island of Oahu and a short ride from our Accommodations in Honolulu, to participate in a 21-kilometer half-marathon course, which is considered a world championship course. This race has taken place on our island in the same location since 2008, and it’s always one of the top Honolulu Things to Do for outdoor enthusiasts.
