Experience 134 miles of aloha


Oahu, Hawaii, USA


The Hoku Relay is a 134 mile team relay around O`ahu for charity

1 weekend • 6-12 friends • 134 miles • Over $250,000 raised for local charities, and counting!

The Hoku Relay is you (yes, you) getting a group of friends together, raising money for impactful local charities, and having an amazing weekend with hundreds of new friends in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. You'll enjoy a well-earned sunset, impromptu stay-awake dance parties, 2am "that-didn't-work" beach naps, a "we can do this" sunrise, and a giant "we did it!" beach party.

Teams of 6-12 collectively cover 134 miles around the island of O'ahu by dividing 25 defined segments. Starting near Makaha and finishing on the North Shore, segments are 4 - 7 miles. Each segment ends at a defined Hoku Relay transition area where volunteers from our non-profit charities await with food, refreshments, support and aloha.

This is our favorite weekend of the year and we can't wait to see you there.

The Hoku Relay is a life changing experience. It's an awesome way to support a good cause, hang out with friends, get some exercise, and see the entire island of Oahu! If you're intimidated by the distance or getting a fast time, just remember it's for charity and it's a relay, not a race :)
