2012 Vi's Top of Tantalus Memorial 7-Mile Run Results

Aloha Athletes,

522024_10150618568021324_617191323_9378139_719655597_nWell it looks like I really missed out on some fun this morning at the HURT Trail Series race. For those of you that were there--as usual the HURT races finish with quite a spread of food. From what I have seen in some photos--there seems to have been an Easter theme. The photo at left is from Wily Woo. Lucky for me (thanks Cheryl), I even got to sample a couple of cookies. 

From what I hear the bad thing about being first and fast, especially when you, a) don't know the course and/or b) don't listen really close to the pre-race instructions (Blue (flagging tape) is bad and don't go down that trail), you can take a wrong turn, get lost and end up finishing way down the list. I won't mention any one in particular, JD.

Thanks to Race Directors Kat and Jeff for putting this all together. I know there were lots of others who helped--thank you too.

Here are the race results: 2012 Top of Tantalus Results 

Doug Baker sent me a link to some photos he took: Doug Baker Photos

I saw some photos on Facebook from Wily Woo and I heard Robert Smith was out taking some as well. 

The next race in the HURT Trail Series is the May 5th, Run with a View. 

I got out for a great MTB ride late this afternoon--the trails were amazingly dry. 

Aloha, Bob

Mahalos to all our volunteers/helpers:
>Cheryl - support, directing runners at the bottom of the rabbit hole, making awesome cookies
>Marian - the great 'bunny down the hole' cake creation!
>Robert Smith - trail maintenance, directing the runners at intersection (top of the H-back), and all the photos!
>Wily Woo - trail marking, photos, aide station
>Freddy Halmes - equipment, trail marking, aide station

Most of all, big mahalo to all that showed up to run!! Great turn out despite the other events that were also taking place!!


Love the bunny cake...Marion, right?!?


Please fix the link for the photos. Thanks!


Sorry, almost forgot, yes I was taking photos and they will eventually make it online and I'll place a link here but right now I'm working on a memorial slide show project for my friend who just passed so race photos will have to wait a bit, sorry.


Wow Bob, that was fast!

For those that are new to HURT here's a preview of the Run with a View course that I put together last year.

This project took a lot longer than I expected which is why it's the only one I've done like this so far. Maybe eventually I'll have time and ambition to do others on the race series. Until then, enjoy this one. : )

Here' the photos I took of last year's race on a really lousy Olympus waterproof camera but it will give you more of an idea what you might expect next month.
