Maui Marathon is homecoming for Wagner
September 14, 2012 - Robert Collias
The 42nd annual Maui Marathon will mark the first big race Allen Wagner has run in Hawaii, perhaps since the 1998 state track meet when he was second in the 1,500 meters for Konawaena.
For Seabury Hall senior Ryan Koss — a national-level triathlete — Saturday's Maui Tacos 5K race is a chance to see how his legs are as he skips the cross country season for the first time in high school.
The weekend is full of fun stuff for runners and running fans and a schedule of the weekend can be found here.
