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

Vi's Top of Tantalus Memorial 7-Mile Run is Saturday April 7th at 8:00 a.m.

Aloha Athletes,

It is time for the next trail race in the HURT Trail Series for 2012. This race gets us back on the trails of Makiki/Tantalus. Please allow enough time to drive to the start. Note the 8:00 a.m. start time. 

As with all trail series races, there is no pre-registration--show up 30-45 minutes before race start, pay your $10 entry fee and you are all set. I suggest car pooling (and why not at $4.50 per gallon) as parking is limited. 

The race start is at Pu'u' Ulaka'a State Park. The approximate address to the entrance gate of the park is 3200 Round Top Drive, Honolulu, HI 96822. If you are not sure where this is, use Google Maps with that address. I apologize for publishing the wrong address previously. 

It is suggested you run with at least one 16-20 ounce bottle. There will be one aid station. 

Also it is very important that we don't overload the bathrooms and/or get them all muddy. Please be courteous of other users. 

If you need more information, either place a question in the Comments below or contact Race Directors: 

Kat Tagaca 285-2457 & Jeff Fong 258-0394

Aloha, Bob

The race directors received delivery of all the rain they ordered and then some today while we were out marking the trail. It's gonna be a perfect HURT race. : )


The course is almost entirely made of single track through the rain forest, with two road crossings. The first half has a lot of uphills, very scenic. The second half is mostly runnable downhill with a few short hills in between. If the trail is dry, road shoes are fine, but you may want something with more of a grip if it has rained (or is raining).


Can someone give me a description of the race trail?
