This past Saturday, June 4th, Race Directors, Pete and Judy put on a really fun race.
How I remember it--five miles uphill and five miles downhill.
I think a good time was had by all--click here for the results for both men and women.
While some of us were having fun at Mango Madness, several H.U.R.T. runners were over on the Big Island, competing in the Honu Trialthlon. Honu is a qualifier for the Kona Ironman and congratualtions to all of the competitors.
Nick Kaiser, Gil Lommis, and Wendy Minor got into Ironman as a result of their performance in this race. Steve Dewald was already in via lottery so we've got four people to follow come October. Click here for the full Honu results.
If I recall, this past year, the Ironman was the same day as the Hogsback 12-Hour Race. Some people will do anything to avoid 12 hours of fun on Hogsback!
Other H.U.R.T. friends participating at Honu were Kelly Hupp, Mike Bennett, Cliff Rigsby, Carol Jaxon, and probably lot's of others I am forgetting. Great job to all of you!!!
Finally, don't forget the next trail series race, July 2, the Firecracker 10-mile race at Kaena Point.
