Saturday September 21st: Peacock (with special guests)

Aloha Athletes,

We are headed back to the North Shore this weekend. Be ready to go for a 6:00 a.m. start from the parking area behind the Control Tower at Dillingham Airfield. It's looking like we'll do between 12-15 miles. If anyone wants to run longer or is looking for company please post here. We're only one month out from Peacock so now is primo time to get your high mileage runs in.

A hint...they were recently married in Canada, are supremely stellar athletes and two of the nicest people you will ever meet. Oh yeah, one of them holds the course record for H.U.R.T. 100 with a time of 19:35. Give up? It's Gary and Linda Robbins née Barton! Come on out and say hello during their special week in Hawaii.

Last week the temps were blazing hot, so as usual please make sure to bring plenty of water (60+oz) and electrolytes. See you then!

Can anyone post what route the 12-15 mile group will be taking? I'm planing to head up there to scout the course for some good shooting locations other than the ones I've shot from in the past couple years and knowing what route the group is taking will increase the chances I'll have targets to test on. :)

Excellent, just got myself off the waiting list for my first 50K! I'm completely unfamiliar with this course and I need to get some miles in!

I'll be going kinda super slow. Will there be runners also aiming to go slow? I don't want to drag anyone behind.

Hi Connie, I don't think there is easy access to the trails from the Waianae side. I believe you need a permit to drive up and I don't think they allow runners or hikers to just walk up the road from that side. In regards to access from Kaena Point, I am not aware of easy access up to the trails we run on. Sorry. Aloha, Bob

Hi - I'm fairly new to the Peacock Flats' trails but have been getting some good time in up there. I will happen to be in the Waianae area this week with some extra time for a run and am wondering if there is access from that side up to the trails (so I can save a driving trip all the way around to Mokule'ia). Is the Tracking Station Access Rd. open to runners or do I need a permit? Or, sometimes when I'm running around Kaena Pt. I see hikers going up trails - is there access to the upper trails from there? Thanks for any advice you can give!
