What does Kukini mean? What is it? In Hawaiian, Kukini means “swift runner or messenger, employed by old chiefs, with a premium on their speed” Because this race will be run completely on one of Virginia’s coolest islands, we adopted the “Island Theme” for the event. Race shirts & awards will have the island theme – and we’d love to see participants join us by “dressing in island causal” (dig out that grass skirt & panama hat).
Is your race chip timed? The 1M, 8k & 5K will be electronically timed & results provided ‘live’ during the event. As our event grows, we may decide to convert to chip timing in upcoming years.
When is next year’s race? The event will always be held in conjunction with the Annual Gwynn’s Island Festival on the final weekend of June. This year’s Kukini Run will be on Saturday, June 27, 2020.
