Hundreds stand in line for early Marathon registration

WAIKELE (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hundreds of people were looking to get a head start on the Honolulu Marathon.

The line stretched around the Sports Authority building in Waikele as runners registered for the 38th annual race.

The first person in line was there just after 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

"I think it's more than just trying to get a discount. It's a real loyalty to the event, it's almost become a culture unto itself", said Honolulu Marathon President Jim Barahal.

The race fee is $45 now, but after June 26, the fee goes up to $95.

You can still sign up Sunday in Waikele between 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

If you don't want to wait in line, you can do it online.

The marathon will run on December 12.
