Cheryl's splits for 60 mile b-day run
It's Friday! What are we doing on Saturday?

Triple Trek will be here Soon!

The Tantalus Triple Trek is September 1. This race is part of the H.U.R.T. Trail Series and is one of the best runs in the series. It's three loops and as I like to describe it, 5 miles up and 5 miles down. It's the only race I know of that you get to run down Hogsback!!

There will be at least one aide station set up and possibly two. These are usually set up at the two road crossings. However, it is suggested that you carry at least one bottle of water per loop. Try to remember that dehydration has a cumulative effect and though you might get away running one loop a bit dehydrated, by loops two and three you will really be paying for it. Ask some of the finishers at the recent Maunawili Out & Back.

Remember this race starts early--5:30 a.m. Parking is limited so plan accordingly. One option is to park down in the neighborhood by the water pumping station and walk up.

You might want a small flashlight for the first 20 minutes or so.

The Start/Finish is at the Hawaii Nature Center.

This race has no pre-registration, so plan on showing up at least by 5:00 a.m. to register and pay the $10 entrants fee. There will be some snacks and aid at the Start/Finish, however if you have special things you like, plan on bringing your own.
