Evan's Races

DNR
I did not run this race, but wanted to list it here to pass on a story: I registered for the Great Aloha Run during my first trip to Hawaii - Our trip was cut short when my mother passed away - in anticipation of my departure and inability to run the race, I went to the expo to pick up the race t-shirt and was told that they would not give it to me until I finished the race - I told 3 different people the reason that I would not be able to run the race and all 3 refused to give me a t-shirt - an email to a race organizer later was also ignored.
