5 – 50K runs | 5 Hawaiian Islands | 5 days
Join us for the EPIC5 Ultra Run as we cover a total of 250 kilometers in five consecutive days while running a 50-kilometer course on each of Kauai, Oahu, Lanai, Maui, and the Big Island. The courses consist of road, trails and beach, and are carefully constructed to ensure athletes experience the best of Hawaii’s natural beauty, rich culture and intriguing history.
Mon-Fri, October 2-6, 2023
The 2023 event is limited to 20 lucky adventurers.
The elevation profile will range from approximately 2,000 – 5,000 feet gained each day.
There is an 8-hour daily time limit.
The cost for participating is $1,950 plus approximately $650 for four inter-island flights. (We will adjust the inter-island flight cost once all participants are confirmed and we know the number of seats/planes we will need. There will be a lower cost option for those who book early)
Costs include participation in all five 50Ks, a fantastic swag bag, access to all race images, a special Hawaiian finisher’s “medal,” meet and greet lunch prior to the first day and an award celebration dinner on the final day! Plus, all the beauty you can soak up on the islands during the 250K run!
Light snacks, water and ice will be available during each race but you’ll be responsible for your meals during the event (generally breakfast and dinner as you’ll be eating along the way during the event).
Inter-island travel is invoiced separately and the approximate cost is $650 USD for all from starting in Kauai to finishing on the Big Island. Not included are your flights to Kauai for the start and departure from the Big Island after the event.
Event – $1,950
Inter-island flights – $650 (approximate)
Event shuttle package (optional) – $275
All participants will receive a backpack that includes a neon vest, an Epic5 visor or hat, event t-shirt, buff, blinky light and post-event awards!
A deposit of $500 USD is required to reserve your spot. $300 of this is non-refundable. We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance in the case of a last-minute cancellation.
Due to the limited number of participants, it’s highly recommended that you submit your deposit as soon as possible!
Final payment is due 4 months prior to the start date (June 1, 2023) at which time payment for inter-island flights and the shuttle is also due.

There is a cost of $250 (plus inter-island flights of estimated $650) for each runner beyond the first one. This cost covers the Epic5 Run swag bag, pre- and post-race meals and snacks during the event.
