Doping: Honolulu Marathon instead of IRONMAN Hawaii

According to BILD, the flights to Hawaii in the Erfurt doping affair are said to have involved participation in the Honolulu Marathon:
“Schmidt or one of his helpers flew specially to Hawaii to look after at least one athlete at the Honolulu Marathon in December. With over 30,000 runners, the marathon is one of the ten largest in the world. Triathletes were not among Schmidt's customers”.

This view is supported by a statement made by the public prosecutor's office to the FAZ in an article dated 22 March 2019:

„Meanwhile, the Munich Public Prosecutor's Office, upon request, stated that by referring to the Hawaii doping scene, it did not mean the famous IRONMAN of the triathletes. Instead, the annual marathon in the capital Honolulu is said to have been the reason for the activities of the group around S.“.
