If you're looking for the crowd support of, say, the NYC Marathon, then this is not your race. It's a very small race, mostly with local people. It has the feel of a 5K, just longer. It's on a very hilly course with lots of ups and downs. Weather-wise, be prepared for anything. This year it poured so badly that the streets flooded and they had to close the course mid-race, so many people didn't get to finish. The post-race party was just a gathering of tables in the corner of a local sports bar. Not sure it's worth it to travel to Hawaii for this race, but it's worth doing if you're already in the area.
