The next race in the H.U.R.T. Trail Series is the Kaena Point Firecracker 10 mile race. This race is a fast, flat, out and back course that parallels the ocean along jeep trails and an old sugar cane rail line.
The race starts at 7:00 a.m. on July 5.
The course is typically hot on the way out, shady along the Waianae side and there is usually a very nice in-your-face breeze along the return. The route is so simple that we will not even be marking the course. Keep the ocean on your right side on the way out and keep the ocean on your left side on your return. (Richard Senelly gets the prize for reading the details!)
As with all of our trail races, there is no pre-registration, just show up at least 30 minutes prior to the race start, pay the $10 entry fee and you are all set.
We plan to have a little potluck after the race, so bring a dish to share, a beach chair, and sunscreen.
The route goes from the end of the pavement past Dillingham Airfield and Camp Erdman, to where the pavement begins again on the Waianae coast side of Kaena Point. We will have an aid station set up at the turnaround, however we encourage all runners to carry adequate water (at least one 20 ounce bottle) during the run. It is hot out there and there is not much shade. Don't forget a hat and sunscreen.
If you need driving instructions, click here for general instructions from the Honolulu Airport area. Drive to the end of the paved road. There are no bathrooms at the start/finish. Plan accordingly.
