A Finish Line With a Real High: 8,000 Feet
Monica Scholz report

Peacock 54 is almost here !

Aloha Athletes !

This Saturday 10-23-10 is the 3rd running of one of the toughest 54 mile trail races anywhere...the Peacock 54 ! Gordon has marked the course, the Coke and Mountain Dew are ready and the weather report says sunny, so plan for "hot". It should be a fun day !

The gate will be open shortly after 4:30 am and check-in will be from 5:05 until 5:45 am, so bring your $10 (and an additional $20 per shirt, if you want to buy a HURT Trail Series shirt). Gordon will have a short, pre-race meeting at approx. 5:45 am and the race will likely start by 6:00 am. Parking will be different than in the past ! We will be using the area next to (mauka) of the main airfield parking lot. Sign-in will be there as well. Aid stations: Rob Lahoe, WHAT A GUY !, will again be hosting an aid station at the "intersection" stocked with the usual...water, sports drink, Coke, Mountain Dew, and a few light snacks (chips, cookies, etc.). Thanks Rob ! Cheryl will be at the Long Road aid station and John & PJ will be at the start/finish. Both these aid stations will be stocked as usual. Bring your "reasonable-size" Long Road drop bags (no big coolers) to the start-finish and we'll take to Long Road. ..please put your name on them.

Pacers are allowed AFTER the first loop.

Volunteers ! We need all of you ! The "best" times to be there are: Long Road: 9am to noon and 4pm to 8 pm.    Start/finish: noon to 3 pm and 8pm to midnight...BUT we'd love to have you anytime. 

See you there !

Gordon and Don

Yay ROB!!! woohoo!! Rob's World famous mobile aid station will be back at Peacocks again! look forward to seeing you at the top of the hill...

Thanks to all the organizing crews & volunteers, Gordon for creating such a brutal I mean Fun, course, and ... see all of you out on the dirt at zero-dark...


Actually, the intersection aid station will only have ice water, Mt. Dew, and coke. No snacks. I tried talking them into only having hot coffee, but Gordon said that might be overkill. I think I can break him down next year, though, If we get more than a 35% finish rate this weekend.

I'll show up for volunteer duty at 4:00pm.


Just in advance: much thanks Gordon, Don, PJ, Jon, Cheryl, Rob, and all the volunteers for making this event possible! Know we'll all have a memorable day (and night)!
