Hello everyone, my name is Adriaan Koenraadt and I'm 33 years old, born and living in the Netherlands. After running the marathon in London I’d like to share you my next challenge: the Honolulu Marathon (yes, it’s in Hawaii!). Each year in December the Honolulu Marathon is open for all runners and walkers, and I can't wait to be there! Here's how you can help me:
I have a target amount of € 3000 but I only need € 1500,- for flight and accomodation. The other € 1500,- will be donated directly to charity organizations KIKA and CliniClowns (€ 750,- each). So, in all, you'll support my dream but also for charity, you see?
And because running a marathon is a great thing to do, I'll put € 500 of my own money into it as well. So, of every donations received, half of it goes to charity organizations, and the other half is for sports. That's great, isn't it? If you like I can email you a certifcate of donation (just in case you have questions about the charities). And did you know that you can donate anonymous?
It may be a surprise that a marathon on a small, tropical island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is among the ten largest marathon races in the world. The race is hilly, but runners will experience an amazing sunrise during the race.
The Honolulu runners will end their hardships in Kapiolani Park near the volcanic crater, Diamond Head. Kapiolani Park was the states first public park and it remains one of the most frequented recreational areas in the city. On race day the park is transformed to a joyful festival with an award ceremony, shiatsu massage and nearly 50,000 spectators celebrating the tired but euphoric finishers. Before reaching Kapiolani Park, runners have passed several famous Hawaiian landmarks such as Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in the US. And also the statue of surfing hero Duke Kahanamoku on surfing heaven Waikiki Beach and Kawaiahao Church, built with coral blocks from nearby reefs. The course is relatively flat with a large part of it following the magnificent Pacific coastline. A climb occurs at Diamond Head, which runners pass twice along the way. The highest point is 38m above sea level and with the burning sun and oppressive humidity, the course can be quite challenging.
