Barbi and I rode Kaena Point this past Saturday on our mountain bikes. The course is in excellent shape. There is just one area of the washout that requires crossing on a 4" x 4" plank. You have a nice big rock to hold on to and it is pretty easy--we did it carrying our bikes.
More info is available on the race by clicking here.
Additionally, we have HURT Trail Series shirts available for $20. These are Patagonia silk weight capilene and are great training shirts and fun to wear around. These will be available at the race.

The Mango Madnessresults are now available. Click here to see them. Scroll down as it is two pages. The race was run under ideal trail conditions and the pace was fast as evident by the men's winner, Christian Friisfinishing about 4 minutes faster than last year's winner. The women's race was won by Kim Wright.Bob Murphy provided special motivation (ask Kim) for Kim to run a fast race! Thanks to all the participants and race organizers!!
Pictures from the race will probably be posted later this week. Don't forget the next Trail Series race is July 1. It's the Kaena Point Firecracker 10 Mile.
Finally, Bob Murphy was kind enough to let me pass him going down Center trail today and allow me to, for once, finish in front of him. Actually, I think Bob was wanting a private moment as he realized today was his last trip down Center trail for a while. Here's a couple of pictures from his moving away potluck. Bob said he would return in January to run the H.U.R.T. 100!
This Saturday, June 3rd is the Mango Madness Trail Run. This is the third race in the 2006 H.U.R.T. Trail Series. More information is available here or by looking around on this site. Basically, show up by 6:30 a.m., pay $10, and you're all set. The course is a beautiful run (approximately 10 miles) through the Makiki/Tantalus trail system. The race starts and ends at the corner of Makiki Street and Makiki Heights Drive in the park by the water pumping station. This is just down the road from the Nature Center. Click here for a map.
The second event, is the Bob Murphy Moving Away Potluck. More info is here. Essentially, this will be Bob's last race (Ladies: show up early for Bob's special touch with the marker!) before he moves to the mainland. The potluck will get started around 9:15 or so, after the Mango Madness Race. Bring a dish to pass (and a chair) and your favorite Bob Murphy story!
Don't forget the Mango MadnessTrail Series race is one week from Saturday on June 3rd. This race is billed as a 10+ mile run. It's really easier than that since the last 5 miles are all down hill!

We're in a residential neighborhood and parking is limited, so please be quiet. The race starts and ends at the corner of Makiki Street and Makiki Heights Drive in the park by the water pumping station. This is just down the road from the Nature Center. Click here for a map.
