Tens of thousands spend Presidents Day participating in annual Great Aloha Run

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Tens of thousands hit the pavement Monday for the 35th annual Hawaii Pacific Health Great Aloha Run.

The 8.15-mile run officially began at 7 a.m. near Aloha Tower with upwards of 24,000 people, from runners to walkers, heading toward Aloha Stadium.

The first person to cross the finish line was Andy Wacker, who finished in 40 minutes and 34 seconds. The first female to finish was Karley Rempel at 47 minutes and 30 seconds.

The race, which has become a Presidents Day tradition in Hawaii, starts in Downtown Honolulu and goes down Nimitz Highway — all the way to Aloha Stadium.

All proceeds go to charity.
