HURT Trail Series: Tantalus Triple Trek Revised Instructions









DISTANCE:  30 Miles (3 Trek 10 Mile Loops)


RACE ENTRY FEE:   $10.00


Please park below the entrance to the Hawaii Nature Center, as parking is extremely limited.  


When you walk up to the start early in the morning, please observe the “QUIET ZONE” along the Nature Center driveway. We want to be considerate to the residents along the drive.


  • Check-in race morning is mandatory.  We need to know who is on the trail during the race. Likewise, runners are required to notify aid station personnel if they drop out of the race, before they leave the course.
  • Since the Triple Trek starts at 5:30 am, participants may wish to carry a small flashlight till after daylight.
  • Slower runners please be courteous and step aside for faster runners.
  • Please Yield to Hikers
  • Absolutely NO LITTERING! You will be disqualified. Our Tantalus rainforests are fragile, & too special and beautiful to trash. Please observe this rule.
  • The course will be marked- listen for instructions at your start.
  • It is advisable that you carry one or two water bottles on the course.                             
  • There will be an aid station with water on Tantalus Drive (about 7 miles from the start), and at the Start/Finish line. 
  • The two road crossings at the Roundtop Drive and Tantalus Road require your extreme caution while crossing the road- runners will be responsible for their own safety.
  • Number one priority is to HAVE FUN, smell the ginger flowers, and enjoy the scenery.

In the spirit of honesty, forthrightness, etc I must confess I only did one loop last night. It just didn't feel like I should be out there.


Saturday night is no good for me.
Anyone up for Friday night - 3 loops?


I can't make the triple trek but am planning 1 or 2 loops sunday night, start at maybe 4 or 5 pm if anyone wants to meet up...email me if it interests you
