Also did you lose a pair of shoes on Saturday? A pair of shoes were found in the parking lot, Montrail size 12. Call Steve @ 479-6081 to claim them. He has even cleaned the mud from the shoes, so it might cost you a six-pack to get them back.
We are trying to gauge the interest for the 2005 H.U.R.T. Mystery Run scheduled for November 25, 2005.
This race was held for the first time in 2004 and for most participants, was a blast. The race started about 7:00 p.m. on a dark night at the Hawaii Nature Center. Mike Muench outwitted and out sprinted approximately 25 other participants with a winning time of about three and a half hours. I know some of us were out past 2:00 a.m.
Last years race required an essay by each participant describing their worthiness to participate. I've been told a decision has not been made regarding entrance requirements for this year...however, if the race takes place--worthiness probably will be an entrance requirement.
If you are seriously interested, and think you might possess what it takes to participate, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call John at 566-6543 to let him know you are interested in the race.
Again, this is not the time to plead your case, he just wants to know how many people are interested in the race. Entrance requirements and other information will be made available later.
This past weekend saw 19 participants toe-the-line for the annual H.U.R.T. 12-hour run. Conditions seemed ideal with a nice sunny day and good breeze, however the trail was really wet and muddy in spots. Some of us begged off with other commitments, while others persevered the full 12 hours. Click here for the results.
Congratulations to the winner's! Thanks to all the runners who participated!
Congratulations to all the runners from today's Maunawili out and back race. The trail was in excellent shape, very runnable, and fast. The weather was hot and humid and I know several runners finished the race a bit dehydrated while others ran with cramps. Don't forget to pack those electrolytes and drink plenty of water during these hot summer days.
Thanks to Jeff Huff who put on quite a race with help from John Salmonson on a fun starting format based upon age. It made for an overall great event! Special thanks goes out to all those who helped out as well, especially Vanessa Huff and PJ Salmonson.
Watch for race results and photos to be posted later this week.
