HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, Hawaii – Over 1,000 avid runners convene on the Big island to take part in what is considered to be one of the Top 10 toughest marathons in the world. This year, a change in the volcanic activity at the Halema’uma’u Crater has forced the National Park Service and race organizers to reroute the course. Therefore, all the times made history as new course records.
