ANNOUNCEMENT: 2016 Maunawili Out and Back (aka - Run with the Pigs) August 6, 2016 at 6:00 a.m.
Due to a rockslide on the Old Pali Road, immediately after the lookout, the Maunawili Out and Back will not start and finish at the Pali lookout. Finding an alternate location for the start and finish that will accommodate our whole gang and give good access to the Maunawili trail has been quite challenging. We found the best solution possible, however there are some important changes to the event and all participants need to read the following information and ask questions if you have concerns.
Start/Finish Location: Koolau Golf Course and First Presbyterian Church 45-550 Kionaole Rd, Kaneohe, HI 96744
Race Start: ALL participants will start promptly at 6:00 a.m. Gates open at 5:00 a.m.
Route: We will post a map on the blog containing route changes – there will be course marshalls on race morning to assist. The turnaround/handoff for relays is the same location;
41-1020 Waikupanaha Street, Waimanalo, HI
Finish festivities: This will be toned down as we need to minimize our impact on Koolau Golf Course and First Presbyterian Church and vacate the area by 2:30 p.m.
Facilities: We will have a portable lua on-site. We are not allowed to use the Koolau Golf Course and First Presbyterian Church facilities – please stay in our designated parking area. Plan to take care of restroom needs prior to arriving or wait in line for the portable lua.
Parking: Carpooling is encouraged if you will be parking in the parking lot at the start/finish. Please follow the directions of volunteers regarding parking. There is no legal parking on Kionaole Road leading to the Koolau Golf Course and First Presbyterian Church. If you park illegally, it is at your own risk.
Important: The Koolau Golf Course and First Presbyterian Church has been generous by allowing us to stage in their area, and we must abide by all of their requirements as well as be respectful of them and their patrons. We need to be good allies and show them that we are considerate and responsible.
Course Preview Run: There will be a course preview run on Monday, July 4 at 6:00 a.m. beginning in the Koolau Golf Course parking lot. If you plan to go only one direction, arrange for your own transportation from the Waimanalo trailhead.
We are hopeful to have a trail maintenance work day scheduled before August 6. Look for an announcement on the HURT blog (www.hurthawaii.com/)
Your Kokua is welcome: This arrangement with the Golf Course creates a significant expense that was unexpected. All donations to help cover this unexpected expense are welcome. We will pass a hat throughout the morning, should you desire to help.
Thanks so much for your understanding and cooperation. Please feel free to call Marian (221-5171) or John (351-1453) with any concerns.
