More than 29,700 register for Honolulu Marathon

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) So far more than 29,700 runners have registered for this weekend's Honolulu Marathon.

Organizers told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser another 2,000 to 4,000 are expected to enter before the deadline, so total runners could top last year's more than 31,000.

Hawaii Pacific University Travel Industry Management program Chairman Jerome Agrusa says the economic impact of Sunday's marathon will be significant either way.

He says the race has generated more than $100 million in annual sales over the last eight years.

The race draws a significant number of tourists. More than 18,000 people from 45 countries have pre-registered, including about 13,000 from Japan.

Agrusa says most runners bring at least one person with them so marathon-related visitors could top 36,000.
