Saturday Training 7-23-11: Maunawili Out & Back Practice

North Shore trails this Saturday

For those of you interested in trying out some new terrain, there will be a group of us running our awesome top secret North Shore trails this Saturday.  If you want to join in on the fun, meet us at the Sunset Beach Elementary School (right across from Ehukai Beach Park) at 6 AM, Saturday, 7/23.  You can park in the school parking lot, and after being sworn to secrecy, you will be blind folded and led to our secret trail head.  The terrain is almost exclusively single track with lots of shade...and a few gentle hills...you'll barely even notice the climbs!  And absolutely NO asphalt!  These trails are so much fun that you can't even call it "training".  So just come up and have some fun.  If you're lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of Cheryl & Marian's chia pets!  (there have been recent sightings!)  Distance can be anything from a couple of hours to as much as you want.  Bring your camelback.  Any questions, post a comment here, or email me directly at svilliger at aol dot com.

See you there,

Sounds like a lot of fun! I plan to hit Peacock and if I have anything left, part of Maunawili on Sunday. Enjoy!

What could possibly be a better warm up than a 450 foot elevation gain in the first mile!


I think Doug caught on to the key phrasing here. Check your HURT dictionaries for the definition of "gentle hills". There is a gentle hill right at the trail head that will gently spike your heart rate to 90% of your max! But seriously, after that, it is mostly runnable, with forgiving, soft running surfaces. I often use it for recovery runs! It can be pretty muddy, though.

Hi Steve:

We'll barely notice the climbs? haha - that must be HURT speak for big hills.

Sounds like a fun run - I'll be there!

Rob, if the conditions are good (dry), we'll be mountain biking the same trails on Sunday. Let me know if you want to join in on that.

And, Randy, see you Saturday!


Dang it! If anyone runs this trail on a Sunday and would like to show someone as slow as me around, please let me know. Wait a minute....people still use AOL?

Randy Flores

Heyyyyy......Stevie old pal, Stevie old friend. Boy, funny thing is, I was JUUUUST thinking how much I've missed seeing you out on the trails lately. I even thought I'd invite you to some run-of-the-mill run out here on the Windward side.
However......... (chuckle, chuckle) after reading your blog....well, I would be VERY HAPPY to join you on such a run.....

(he he he)
