Run with a View: Weekend freeway closure - Honolulu Bound

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!

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!

FYI since we'll all be up the Space Station will be visible for 4 minutes at 5:27 AM Saturday AM going SW to NE. Hope the clouds clear.

Sorry Warren, since we're computerized, we cannot exchange names, your friend would have to run as you.

Speaking of HURT, I hurt my knee this weekend at the kbay sprint tri, so can't do the run with a view on saturday. i am registered for the whole series...can i let someone take my spot and if so how?

Nate,
Mostly flattish single track for 1 mile. (Some nasty sections in here.)
2-1/2 miles of climbing. Some easy bits (~3/4 miles) on overgrown jeep road but then steep climbs on fern covered single track for the last section.
2 miles downhill to the aid station.
At the aid station just turn around and go back.

The first part of the course has some serious bottlenecks. If you want to run the race for time you will need to get out ahead of the pack right from the get go.

Oh how I wish I could have made a preview run. Would anyone have mercy of a busy Dad, and share basically how the course goes? (ie. climb for 5 miles, descend for 5) Mahalo.

Jake

I deliberately volunteered not to run to keep a spot open...DONT WASTE IT!!
