Saturday, May 31: Mango Madness Course Preview #2

We call this course preview "Mango Madness Lite". It's about half the distance, but will give you a good idea of what the course could be like. Meet this Saturday, May 31st, 6AM, at the pumping station at the corner of Makiki Street and Makiki Heights Drive. Look for Jacque, my co-race director.

At the time of this post, there are only 3 slots left. Hope to see you at the race on June 7th!

Aloha, Melanie

Mango Madness Course Preview: Saturday, May 24th

Mango Madness Course Preview is this Saturday, May 24th at 6AM. Meet at the pumping station at the corner of Makiki Street and Makiki Heights Drive. 

Mango Madness is a race that is 10++ miles through some tough, technical, and steep terrain of the Tantalus trail system. Participants will be led on the same route every year, but there will always be an addition, or unexpected detour along the way (hence the 10 "PLUS" miles). Bring your game face and your sense of humor. Prizes go to the top ten males and top ten females, as well as the first male/female to reach the top of infamous Concrete Hill. Great food and company at the end of the race. Hope to see you there!

Aloha! Melanie

Run with a View - Race Results

Aloha Athletes!

Thanks to everyone who came out today for the new and improved Run with a View 10ish mile trail run. We had sunny skies and a great turnout with 106 starters. Congrats to Amity and Leandro on their wins. As far as I know, no one missed the memo about the new start location and everything went off without a hitch. I picked up a few left behind items so please comment here if they belong to you:  items include a gray hoodie, lime green tank top and a gray water bottle. If no one claims, they will be donated to charity.

Mahalo to our race directors Cheryl and Rosie and to Don for making the new course map. For those of you lucky enough to win a coaster, you'll notice that the photos gracing the cover are actually from the course itself. Augusto and I went out on a special photo shoot to make sure the awards were as custom as could be! Thanks to John and PJ for doing an amazing timing job and getting all the runners checked in, marked and ready to go.

Huge thanks to Gary, Gordon and Rex for all their hard work trimming the course to get it ready for the runners. Thanks to our course marshals and trail markers:  Jeff, Huddy, Scot, Judy, Gary, Jake, Sue, Heather and the aid station crew run by the Dewald family. Thank you Runners Hi for the tent and table and to all of the start/finish workers: Mike Hee, Marian, Myra, Mike Cole, Mark, Kat, even some visiting runners families who helped out with the fruit kabobs and set up. It takes a village to put on a race and none of this could done without you!

Photos to come, again mahalo to Augusto DeCastro for all he does for the trail series. Everyone was all smiles at the end and we can't wait to see everyone next year.

Saturday May 10th: Run with a View!

Aloha Athletes, Hurt-rwav-award-photos-green_path_print 8

Run with a view is the 3rd race in the 2014 H.U.R.T Trail Series and it's happening this Saturday! Very important, for those of you that have ran before, the start/finish is in a new location this year and we no longer start at the top of Ka'ahele Drive in the park.

About the course: There is one aid station around mile 5.5. It will be hot so make sure to bring plenty of water. In the race briefing we will review the course map and let you know what color ribbons the trails are marked with. There will also be folks on course to point you in the right direction at critical intersections. If you have to drop out, it is mandatory for you to inform one of the race directors at the start-finish, before the race is over.

Start times: Runners start at 6:30. Walkers start at 6:00.

Parking:  Make sure to leave plenty of time to park. Carpooling is encouraged. You'll see us set up at the end of Waimano road. There's a guard shack with parking area on the left and an elementary school is on the right. It is preferred that you park along the road or in the dirt lot near the guard shack.

Directions: To get there from town, from H-1, exit at the Pearl City/Waimalu exit. Turn right on Moanalua Road at the end of the ramp. As Moanalua Road ends, turn right on Waimano Home Road. Continue on Waimano Home road until you reach a guard shack with a parking area on the left. The trails begin at the end of the chain link fence. Check the map if you are unsure where to go.

We all look forward to seeing you. Ice cold fruit kabobs, homemade energy bars and banana bread are just some of the tasty treats you can expect at the finish!

Rosie & Cheryl

The course is rugged and hot, and we urge you to carry a water bottle...our aid stations are only to supplement your water needs. This is a State Park, so alcohol is not permitted. If you have to drop out, it is mandatory for you to inform one of the race directors at the start-finish, before the race is over.
 
We all look forward to seeing you, and spending another raucous morning on the trails!
