description
Let's go to the beautiful island of Hawaii and participate in the Volcano Rain Forest Runs. We will get to experience both dramatic scenery and the chance to run through the hills and rain forests above the town of Volcano Valley on the big island of Hawaii.

Rain Forest Runs 2012

Since the marathon course isn't easy to find tasks for, I will list volcanoes around the Hawaiian islands. These volcanoes are active, inactive and extinct. To finish the course you must run past (read) three of the volcanoes.

Duration: August 1 - 30, 2018
Books must be at least 200 pages.

Rereads and audio books are okay.

Rissa | 437 comments Let's go to the beautiful island of Hawaii and participate in the Volcano Rain Forest Runs. We will get to experience both dramatic scenery and the chance to run through the hills and rain forests above the town of Volcano Valley on the big island of Hawaii.

Since the marathon course isn't easy to find tasks for, I will list volcanoes around the Hawaiian islands. These volcanoes are active, inactive and extinct. To finish the course you must run past (read) three of the volcanoes.

(Duration: August 1 - 30, 2018
Books must be at least 200 pages.
Rereads and audio books are okay.
mc = main character)
