The HURT trail series would not have been possible without the help of our HURT Ohana. From trail marking, to parking direction, course marshaling, course sweeping, start/finish set up, and post-race cleanup - our volunteers make the races possible. Mahalo to all of you.

There was a nice water bottle left at the park. Please claim it if it is yours.

Enjoy our next race - Kealia Quad Crusher.

Happy Trails!

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 on Round Top Drive, outside the entrance of the park, making sure your car is completely off the roadway and that your wheels must be on the dirt/grass area and NOT on the asphalt.

There will be NO aid stations. It is highly recommended that you carry at least 20 Oz of water. The course is rugged and hot.

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!
