Roots n’ Shoots: 5K Run/Walk Through Allerton & McBryde Gardens in Poipu

Run or walk this tropical garden 5K (3.1 mi) race through Poipu’s National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG) on Saturday, April 4, 2015 at 8am. Kauai Marathon and NTBG are partnering in this fundraising event held on the tropical grounds of Allerton and McBryde Gardens.

The race kicks off at the new Biodiversity Trail, a visual timeline of plant evolution over the past 450 million years. The course takes runners and walkers through soaring rainforest trees and colorful tropicals alongside the meandering Lawai Stream down towards Lawai Kai (aka “Allerton’s Beach”).

Following the race, there will be a complimentary light breakfast for participants as well as a silent auction and a lucky drawing with proceeds going towards supporting The Kauai Marathon’s Youth Running Program and other local non-profit groups. After the 5K finishes, participants are able to explore both gardens. The cost is $35 per adult and $25 for students (16 years and under). Parking is available near the garden’s main entrance on Lawai Road.
