BBQ Potluck after the race, so please bring a dish to share, a beach chair, swimsuit - to relax and enjoy the post-race festivities!  Hotdogs, burgers, condiments, drinks, and some fruit will be provided. We will have an aid station with water set up at the halfway point, however, we will require ALL runners to carry adequate water (at least one 20 ounce bottle) during the run. It is hot out there and there is not much shade. Don't forget sun protection! There will be course marshals out on the course, follows their instructions or you will be disqualified from the race. They are there for your safety and to ensure course compliance so that we can continue to offer this race in the future!

This run is dedicated to Matt Leathers, Navy SEAL and HURT runner, was lost at sea off Kaena Point while participating in open water swim training this past February. Matt ran in the 2012 and 2013 editions of the HURT 100 as well as numerous of the HURT trail series run. It was not uncommon for one to be running the Tantalus trails in the early morning and to suddenly encounter him stealthily running out there as well. As this is H.U.R.T.'s Independence Weekend event and due to its location, please also think of not only Matt but also all of the service members that we have had the distinct honor to have shared dirt and mud with.

See you there!
