Roots 'n Shoots Race Description

Event Details and Schedule

The Kauai Marathon and the National Tropical Botanical Garden are excited to put on the Sixth Annual Roots ‘n Shoots Fun Run and Walk on Saturday, April 11, 2020 at 8am. This 5k garden run is the sixth ever to be held on the lush tropical grounds of Allerton and McBryde Gardens and raises funds for the marathon and associated charities.

Check-in and Parking

Runners and walkers check-in at the NTBG South Shore Visitor Center parking lot starting at 6am and will be shuttled to the start of the 5k. The race begins near the recently opened Biodiversity Trail, a winding 800-foot path designed to tell the story of plant evolution over the last 450 million years.


The 3.1-mile course meanders through diverse scenery among rainforest trees, a grove of swaying golden bamboo, tropical fruit trees, along the Lawai Stream and even the Pacific Ocean.

Finisher’s Party

After the run, participants will enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast sponsored by Living Foods Gourmet Market and Cafe along with coffee provided by Kauai Coffee Company. The event also includes a silent auction and a drawing where funds will support The Kauai Marathon Youth Running Program and other local non-profit groups that annually benefit from The Kauai Marathon.
