#THEKONALIFE

Kona Life is the lifestyle behind our Kona Brand. Everything we do, everything we touch we want it to be fun, positive and inspire friends and families to achieve their fitness goals while having fun! Some events and races are all about the Billy B.A.’s out there who always seem to somehow be stronger, faster, and further than everyone else. We pride ourselves in creating a fun, laid back yet challenging event and race experience that our athletes come back to time and time again. Express yourself and become apart of the Kona Running Fam. Aloha!

LET’S GET
AFTER IT

For those of you who are ready to take your running to the next level Kona has something to offer you as well. Our professionally timed events offer our athletes not only themed, scenic fun but, also considerable challenge with 10k and 15k (Double-up) events with longer distances but with the same great atmosphere. Why not push yourself while having some post event fun? At Kona you can have it both ways!
