Some exmaples of events held here in Hawaii - 

Honolulu Rainbow Ekiden

JTB held the 4th annual, “Honolulu Rainbow Ekiden “ in Hawaii on Sunday the 13th of March, 2016.

“Ekiden” is a long distance relay race. It was first conceived in Japan 90 years ago.

In recent years “Ekiden” has gained worldwide attention. Honolulu is very excited to be the host of the Ekiden, "The Rainbow of the Pacific, Joining with Aloha."

Our goal is to join all participants in the Spirt of Aloha, by the use of ribbon leis as race sashes. We also strive to widen a circle of friendship beyond ethnic background or generation, to spread a ripple of goodwill to all participants of the Ekiden.

Honolulu Century Ride is Hawaii's oldest and largest cycling event and celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2012. The next event will be on Sunday 27th September, 2015.
