Saturday Training June 26, 2010: Peacock Flats, again!
Best of Luck to All Western States Runners (UPDATED)

Start Your Holiday Weekend with a Bang!! H.U.R.T. Trail Series Kaena Point Firecracker Race

IMG_0552 On July 3, the H.U.R.T. Trail Series heads to end of the road and Kaena Point.

This race is a fast, flat, out and back course that parallels the ocean along jeep trails and an old sugar cane rail line. 

Kaena Point Firecracker 10 Mile Trail Race: Saturday July 3, 2010 7:00 a.m.


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.

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 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. We will be on the ocean side.

Aloha, Bob and Barbi

I've been here on island for just over 3 months now. I'm stationed here with the Marines and looking to run the H.U.R.T. 100 next year. I read about it when I was reading "Born To Run" So far the longest distance I've completed was when I ran the San Francisco Marathon in 08, ran it in 3:37, only trained for it for 3 weeks though, boy was the week after not fun, I won't make that mistake again.

I'll be out at Kaena Point tomorrow morning, looking forward to the run and meeting everyone. Also would like to become a regular for the training runs.

Hi Jason,
For $10 we don't hand out shirts but we do give awards out to the fastest 10 men and fastest 10 women. We also have HURT Trail Series shirts available for purchase for $20. They are nice Patagonia tech shirts. Also we typically put together a great picnic/potluck after the race so you get good value for your money!
We hope to see you out there.

Hi ya,

A group of us just flew into town and would like to do the race on the 3rd if thats possible. We are a crazy group of Rescue Swimmers in the Navy and love a challenge. A couple guys want to know if you hand out t shirts for the HURT runs? Thanks


Art La Flamme

Wow. I might actually be able to make this one. Gee, I've only been talking about showing up for one of these for about 18 months.


Looking forward to it Bob and Barbi!!! Aloha

Bob and Barbi,

I am available again to start the early walkers/joggers. I can bring extra tables that you need for the potluck. (We have two long ones). Please let me know if there is anything else I can do. It will be nice getting to sleep-in for this run. LOL
