Peacock 54 Excitement is Building !

Aloha Athletes !

The HURT Trail Series Peacock 54 is just over 3 weeks away and the excitement is really building ! Last Saturday 20 runners showed up at Peacock for the training on the Peacock course...quite a big turnout. People are already offering to volunteer and Mike Muench is putting together "Peacock Basics" with mileage splits and elevation stats and Larry Inouye is working on late-hour parking approval. Gordon and I really appreciate all the support. If any of you would like to volunteer to work a remote aid station for a few hours on race day (it will require driving a 4-wheel drive vehicle through the gate on the Waianae side and up the jeep roads) please let Gordon know by e-mail: . Otherwise, we will have a large stash at the location of the "intersection".

Two weeks prior to the race, Saturday October 11, 2008, we will have a race course orientation training day, especially to give runners who have not seen the course before, and those of you not yet comfortable with the course, a chance to get familiar with the course.
