Less than a month to the Kona Run!!!!

Kona Run(formerly Solstice Run) medals 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013
Well this year will be my fifth year in a row running the Kona Run on June 7th.  This has always been a great race starting at the racetrack in Northville and finishing on a track in Ford Field in Northville.  It was my first 10 mile race ever!  This is also the second race in the Grand Slam Series with Wicked Halloween and the Kona Chocolate Run coming later in the year.
5 years ago - Kona was my first 10 miler ever
As usual, the Kona race will include a 10 mile, 10k, 5k and 1 mile run.  Some great new things this year too:
  • Registration and Packet pickup will be at the Northville Community Center Gym
  • Kona Grand Slam Bags to first 4,000(excluding Maui mile entrants)
  • Guernsey Ice Cream served at the finish line
  • Two waves in the 5k
Also, everyone receives a tech shirt:

If you run the 10 mile(first 1,000) or 10k(first 1,750), you also get a medal and this year is a really sweet one too.  Check it out:
Medal for 10 mile and 10k
The courses for the 10 mile, 10k and 5k are all USATF certified and they are not for the faint of heart.  Haha!  There are some hills in there!  Ok, they are not that bad but they are hilly courses.  Check out the elevation and the course maps.  The one mile is two laps around the racetrack.
