Enjoy with Aloha

Relocated from the famous Ward Warehouse in 2006, the largest location of our business has had the pleasure of serving visitors from Japan, Brazil and Germany to name a few. A convenient 5 minute walk from the Ala Moana Shopping Center and a short distance from the annual Honolulu Marathon Expo, Our Kapiolani location is a must see for both locals and tourists.

Serving the west side Oahu since May 2015, Our Aiea location caters to the local runners from pearl City to Kapolei. Located among local supermarkets, restaurants and other vendors the Waimalu Plaza is a great place for a shopping trip. Holding a nostalgic location for us. RUNNERS ROUTE was originally founded in the Aiea and Pearl City area back in 1983.

The newest of the three locations, Kapahulu location opened in January of 2017. Located on Kapahulu Avenue that traces the bottom of famous Diamond Head Crater, our Kapahulu Store features many tourist attractions in it's vicinity. Rich with culture and surrounded by great food vendors the Kilohana Square offers both old and new Hawaii.

In the RUNNERS ROUTE, the General Manager is the leader and store managers of each store make shops that make use of the characteristics of each shop. While competing for the number of "smiles", everyone is constantly striving for new challenges while presenting their opinions in order to increase "smile" without a position of part-time jobs or employees. We value valuable advice and communication on online shopping, and we are working on the theme of cheaper price than anywhere. Of course, We are doing our best while working towards a workplace where all the crews working together will be able to work "fun" with the General Manager as the lead, so that it will be "smiling".

We also hold a Honolulu marathon and opening events for each event every year, collecting selected members from each store and exciting sales at the event. In addition, each member selected as a member of the event brings up the learning to the store after the event and it also leads to the level up of each store by sharing it to other crew. We regularly have dinner meetings inside the company, and after the event we have also launched and we think that exchanges outside the workplace are increasing their awareness. Every March, We participate in JTB-sponsored Ekiden Conference and are excited like an in-house sports festival. We expect more things that someone learned will spread in a chain.
