(HawaiiNewsNow)- This will be the 40th Honolulu Marathon. It will be the biggest Honolulu Marathon in 15 years with entries possibly reaching 32,000.
Reports have it that the Honolulu Marathon will be the second largest American marathon of the year behind the Chicago Marathon. That will be a big jump because Honolulu was not even in the top 5 for 2011.
The race will have its strongest men's professional field ever with Olympic medalist and 2012 London Marathon champion Wilson Kipsang the favorite. Kipsang was favored to win the New York City Marathon before it was canceled.
