Triple Trek Course Preview/Training, 8/19

File_000Aloha All,

Another week to get out and get some time on the trail! Three more weeks (and two more weekends) until race day!!! 

This Saturday, August 19, Jeff will be hosting another preview/training runs to go two full loops of the course. Meet at the picnic and restroom area at the Maunalaha-Kanealole trail head (by the Hawaii Nature Center) at 6am.

Runners are expected to bring adequate water and nutrition they may require. Depending on the time of sunrise, a small (handheld) flashlight or headlamp may be needed. 

If you have not yet been on the Tantalus trails, please make it a point to remain with the group or be with someone who knows the course. Here is a map of the course. For those unfamiliar with the trails, feel free to print a copy for reference along the training run.

If you choose to do additional mileage or be on your own, be sure to have adequate water and nutrition as well as know the route (as well as your limits).

Please feel free to contact us via email at hurt3trek[at]gmail.com .

Have a great remainder of the week and hope to see you on the trails!

Mahalo,

Triple Trek Course Preview/Training, 8/12

Aloha Everyone,

Congratulations again to all that ran last weekend’s Maunawili Out & Back 22-miler (aka the Run with the Pigs). Much mahalo to Marian and Neal Yasuda for putting on another great event that keeps us coming back year after year as well as adapting the race route & post-race fun! It’s now time to keep those legs going for the next-to-final race of the H.U.R.T. trail series, the Tantalus Triple Trek (3T)!!

This year’s race will take place on Saturday, September 2 and will consist of three consecutive loops of the course (for a total of 30+ trail miles). If you do not know the course, please be sure to take part at least two of the training/preview runs in the next few weekends. As no pacers will be allowed, it is highly encouraged for those who are not familiar with the course to attend at least one of the sessions. To add a bit of fun and keep things interesting, we will be running the course in “reverse”.

Course Route: The course will consist of three (10+ mile) loops. Each loop will be as follows:
Head up the Maunalaha trail (Hogsback), across Makiki Valley trail, up Nahuina trail, and along Tantalus Drive. Continue down Kalawahine trail then along Manoa Cliff and Moleka trails, then back across Makiki Valley trail (again) and down the Kanealole (Center/Pipe) trail and back to the start/finish. 

Here is a map of the course. For those unfamiliar with the trails, feel free to print a copy for reference along the training run.

This Saturday, 8/12, will be the first preview/training run with one full loop of the course. Please meet at the picnic and restroom area at the Maunalaha-Kanealole trail head (by the Hawaii Nature Center) at 6am. Runners are expected to bring an adequate amount of water as well as any nutrition they may require, and most of all have fun (this is not race day). If you have not yet been on the Tantalus trails, please make it a point to remain with the group, or be with someone who knows the course.

If you choose to do additional mileage or be on your own, be sure to have adequate water and nutrition as well as know the route (as well as your limits).

Please feel free to contact us via email at hurt3trek[at]gmail.com.

Have a great remainder of the week and hope to see you on the trails!
