by Ron Wayne on September 4, 2012
September 2, Kauai, Hawaii, Tyler McCandless battled the heat, the rain, and 2,000 competitors to win the Kauai Marathon. Tyler's time of 2:23.51 was 32 seconds slower than last year's time where he set the course record earning a time bonus. If Tyler had broken his course record, he would have earned an additional $15,000 bonus. After his win, McCandless said,, "Last year I came to the Garden Isle of Kauai with a goal of winning the race. I ended the day with a win and a course record. Today, I ran as best I could and came up just off my course record, but did not come up short of an incredible experience. The Aloha spirit of the race is unrivaled and I am very proud to be a two-time Kauai Marathon Champion."
