Hundreds Complete Ragnar Trail Oahu

It was a weekend of sore muscles, stinky feet and sweaty clothes, but the memories from the first-ever Ragnar Trail Oahu race for live on forever.

April 21-22, more than a thousand runners laced up their sneakers and hit Turtle Bay’s miles of scenic yet challenging trails. Some even travelled from the mainland and neighbor islands to run.

Teams of 4-8 runners worked together to conquer more than 120 miles. The course was divided into three different loops ranging from four to more than six miles each.

“It was a life changing experience for sure,” said Arianne Cameros, who drove down from Nanakuli on Oahu’s west side for the event.

“The weather was terrible,” reported runner Anthony Ching of Ka’a’awa. “It was fun, but I honestly wanted to die at some points,” he chuckled.

North Shore Town Highlight: Haleiwa

A town you can’t afford to miss while staying with us on the North Shore of Oahu is Haleiwa. The word Haleiwa means "house of the frigate bird" in Hawaiian. Haleiwa, pronounced hah-lay-EE-wah is a historical surf town that's about a 25 minute drive from Turtle Bay Resort.

The charming community dates back to the 1900s and was developed to support the sugar plantation industry, which was the north shore’s main source of jobs in the day. Today the town’s architecture still resembles the early 1900s. In 1984 Haleiwa was designated a State Historic, Cultural and Scenic District. Today, many of the early business families and their original business buildings still remain in Haleiwa.
