Na Wahine Ikaika prize money

The question came up regarding the prize money categories for the Inaugural Na Wahine Ikaika women's race coming up on Oct. 11. There will be a cash purse for the following categories of individual discipline: SUP, Prone, Surfski and canoe. The canoe can be either an OC-1 or a V-1. Not enough V-1 competitors to make its own prize money category, but if a V-1 wins the race, then that paddler is eligible for the canoe prize money. Hence why it is labeled "OC-1/V-1". Pass the word to the women to come race. Find out more at

My girlfriend would love to do this race , but $60? For a Hawaii Kai run?
Kind of steep.

Think of you buying her a Mahiku Capri for $60 (discounted from their regular price) and racing for Free.

Damn, I'd buy the Mahiku capris for myself for only $60...

Drop the capris and prize money, entry fee $38. I'm in!

Shannon, if you pay the $38 i'll cover the rest. then you give me the capris.

$75? Wow, that's more than I would be willing to pay. I'm with Shannon, keep the pants and prize money in order to lower the price.

If you look at "$60 for a Hawaii Kai run", it can sound unreasonable. Keep in mind that this is a benefit race for the organization Dress for Success- Honolulu chapter. It's a great cause. If you aren't familiar with it go their website and check it out. If those of us who race oc1, sup etc. can even afford to purchase our own equipment, we are financially way ahead of the underprivileged women who can't even afford the clothes and accessories needed to go to a basic job interview. The capris are the icing on the cake. Several of my friends are entering just for those. Even if one decided NOT to race, you'd still walk away with something for your $$$ and knowing that you supported a local charity.

Best Race Ever. So glad I did it despite my hesitation with the price. Great wind, good food and awesome participants. Thank you!
