Saturday January 3rd: HURT Loop starting @ 6:30am from Manoa

Aloha Athletes, Happy-New-Year

Same as last weekend but starting from Manoa, this weekend Melanie will be out on course for another 20 mile HURT loop. This is mostly to give the pacers a chance to get out there and run the loop prior to race day. If you aren't sure of the course, we would highly advise that you bring a buddy who does know the way or a map to find your way around. The group will likely spread out during the course of the loop and be running at a good pace. If you'd rather not do the full 20, you can come out for part and turn back at any time, again just make sure you know the way.

For the run, the meeting spot will be along Manoa road (right before you turn to the left and the road narrows heading in to Manoa Falls trailhead). Meet near the bus stop at 6:30. You might need a light in the beginning so bring a handheld for safety. Please be self sufficient and bring everything you need for the full 20 miles. Expect between 6-8 hours for time on the trail depending on your speed.

As for the rest of you, if you're looking for something fun to do Saturday night you can still sign up for the New Years Resolution Run 12 hr aka the Cow run at Kualoa Ranch. Our ladies team H.U.R.L. will be there along with a bunch of HURT folks who love runnin' all night long.

Next week, we'll be doing the annual trek loop prior to the H.U.R.T. 100 for runners, pacers and out of towners alike. It always has a large turnout and we can't wait to see all the visiting runners in January!

Mahalo,

Rosie

Saturday December 27th: HURT Loop starting @ 6:30am from TNC

Aloha Athletes,

This weekend Melanie will be out on course for a full 20 mile HURT loop. This is mostly to give the pacers a chance to get out there and run the loop prior to race day.

If you aren't sure of the course, I would highly advise that you bring a buddy who does know the way or a map to find your way around. The group will likely spread out during the course of the loop and be running at a good pace. If you'd rather not do the full 20, you can come out for part and turn back at any time, again just make sure you know the way.

Meet at the Nature Center near the picnic tables at 6:30 am. You might need a light in the beginning so bring a handheld for safety.

The plan is to stash some water (and possibly snacks) at Nu'uanu but this is not an excuse to come ill prepared. Please be self sufficient and bring everything you need for the full 20 miles. Expect between 6-8 hours for time on the trail depending on your speed.

Mahalo!

Saturday December 20th: Peacock @ 6:30am

Aloha Athletes, Baby-its-cold-outside

This Saturday, the lovely Jacki D. will be leading a group run up on the North shore at Peacock. On the agenda, 7-10 miles including a trip up Are's loop.

Meet at the Dillingham airfield at 6:30 am and don't forget your snacks and water. Lucky for us, it's winter time and getting chillier by the day.

Merry Christmas to all the H.U.R.T. runners I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday season. Next week will be the final run for 2014, can you believe the year is over already? Where did the time go!?

Saturday December 13th - 6:30am @Paradise

Aloha Athletes, Thank-You

First off, regarding my post last week, I wanted to give a sincere thank you to those who signed up to lead a Saturday run or two. It is very, very much appreciated!

This week, we're once again joining forces with the Soul Runner herself, Melanie. She'll be leading runners around Manoa for a distance of around 10 miles or so. Trails are sure to be extra wet and muddy, and sure to be full of other HURT runners training for the big race in January. For the run, the meeting spot will be along Manoa road (right before you turn to the left and the road narrows heading in to Manoa Falls trailhead). Meet near the bus stop at 6:30.

Good luck to all running the Honolulu marathon this weekend!

Rosie


Pupukea Paumalu this Saturday

Aloha Athletes,

We're taking it up to the North Shore this Saturday!  For a change in scenery we'll be running up on Pupukea. That's right, the awesome, used-to-be-secret trails of the Pupukea Paumalu Forrest Reserve, with some of the best views of the North Shore surf breaks you can imagine.

Meet at 8 AM at the Sunset Beach Elementary School parking lot.  As many of us are planning to do Xterra on Sunday, we'll take it kinda easy.  The plan is to do a "conversation pace" (that means not fast!) for about 90 minutes or so.  Of course, you can stay up on the trails and run as far as you like afterwards.

Here's a map if you're not sure where to go:  https://www.google.com/maps/place/Sunset+Beach+Elementary+School/@21.663772,-158.049497,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x7c0050a9169edcd5:0xe2e875b373dc2955

See you there!
