Vi's Top of Tantalus Race Results and Photos

Another great HURT Trail Series race on Saturday, April 15th! Vi's Top of Tantalus had 107 runners on a spectacular day. Kat and I are sorry that the course had less mud than usual. Congrats to all the runners who finished smiling, or who at least smiled after recovering from the steep, uphill finish.

Ryan Karwiel and Polina Carlson won their respective divisions. Polina also broke the women's course record previously held by Shawna Ping since 2013. Click here for the race results, and click here for the photos.

Vi's Top of Tantalus Race Day Instructions

Aloha Athletes,

Vi's Top of Tantalus is sold out but we are looking forward to seeing everyone who has signed up for race #2 of our HURT trail series. The race starts at 8AM and the park opens at 7AM. Please arrive by 7:30 to ensure a timely start.

The race run will start and finish at the Pu'u Ualakaa Park, about two miles up Tantalus Mountain on Round Top Drive. This race is conducted in memory of our dear HURT friend, Vi Medusky-Jones, who passed away from ALS a few years ago.

According to our permit from the Division of State Parks, we are required to leave parking spaces open to other park users. Please park out on Round Top Drive, outside the entrance to the park, making sure your car is completely off the roadway. Carpooling to the race is highly encouraged. The race will start at the covered lookout, past the bathrooms, and finish in the upper parking lot. The route will be marked with our ribbons, which will be explained race morning when you check in. There will be one aid station near the Moleka road crossing about 5 miles into the race and light refreshments at the finish. The course is rugged and hot, and we urge you to carry a water bottle...our aid station is 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 fun morning on the trails!

Judy and Kat
