Race Preview: 2019 Aunty Diva 5k Aloha Fun Run/Walk (Vancouver)

There’s a wonderful celebration of Hawaiian and Polynesian Culture at the 4 Days Of Aloha Festival in Vancouver at the end of July. Part of this celebratory weekend is the 2019 Aunty Diva 5k Aloha Fun Run/Walk on Sunday, July 28th at Esther Short Park. This festival and race help honor founder Aunty Deva Yamashiro, who loved bringing the “aloha spirit” to the children and the community and died from Cancer just last year. The contributions to the event will help support Aunty Deva’s vision.

This race will start in Downtown Vancouver and meander along the beautiful Columbia River. You can check out the course map here. It will begin at 8:00AM at the park and it’s only $30 to register an adult. All youths 12 and under are free. All participants will receive a 4 Days of Aloha Run shirt and a complimentary beer from Kona Brew or a cider from Portland Cider Company. There will also be some other goodies from the race sponsors and the first 150 finishers will receive a loaf of Dave’s Killer Bread.

Stick around after the race, as there will be cash prizes for Best Aloha Spirit (both individual and team!) as well as some post run refreshments. Stay for the 17th Annual 4 Days of Aloha Festival that will help you through a case of the Mondays.
