The Honolulu Marathon makes up 30 pages of the book as the featured race of December. According to an HPU economic impact study led by Dr. Jerry Agrusa, the Honolulu Marathon contributed more than $100 million to the city’s economy in 2005.

The book tells marathoners what they can do after the marathon, as the HPU studies have found that marathoners tend to stay longer and visit neighbor islands. The book includes information such as: Where to stay, where to eat, where to be entertained, where to shop, and how to make the most out of visiting a marathon host city.

Allen, who has written for Cosby, Saved by the Bell, Jim Henson Productions’ Animal Jam, and Barbie Fairytopia, says that upward of a half million people will complete an American marathon in 2006. Many of them will travel to do so, and that is why she wrote the guide.
