Mango Madness Preview Runs, Shirts, and Trucker Hats

Are You Mango Tough?

Mango Madness is June 11 and is the fourth race in the 2016 HURT Trail Series. The course is never disclosed and takes runners on unexpected twists and turns. It's listed as 10+ miles because the course is a mystery to all-- as well as those who mark the trail the day before. You are guaranteed a lot of elevation and all of the rocks, roots, and mud that the Tantalus Trail System has to offer. We always treat our runners to amazing prizes. Every finisher receives cool schwag at the finish. Also, the top 10 women and men will be awarded for their stellar efforts. And don't forget, the first runners who reach the top of Concrete Hill will be crowned King and Queen of the Mountain.

Previews of the approximate course will be held on May 28 and June 4 at 7am sharp. Meet at the Hawaii Nature Center parking lot.

This Saturday the 22nd, JulieT will be leading the second preview/training run to go one full loop of the course again. Please meet at the picnic and restroom area at the Maunalaha trail head (by the Hawaii Nature Center) at 6:30am.

Bring sufficient water as well as any nutrition (gels, energy bars, magic potions) you require, and most of all come to HAVE FUN! If you have not yet been on the Tantalus trails please make it a point to remain with Julie and the group. See last week’s training run post for a map of the course. For the most part the race itself will consist of three loops of the course.

Everyone is welcome to join us for this training run – you don’t have to be registered for the Triple Trek race, and all levels of trail runners are encouraged to come!

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

Mahalo,

Julie, Fish, and Jeff (da 3T RDs)

TRIPLE TREK COURSE PREVIEW/TRAINING

Aloha Athletes,

Many congratulations to all that ran last weekend’s Maunawili Out&Back 22-miler (aka the Run with the Pigs). As usual Marian and Neal Yasuda have outdone themselves in putting on another great event that’s kept us coming back year after year! It’s now time to keep those legs going for the final race of the H.U.R.T. trail series, the Tantalus Triple Trek (3T)!

This Saturday, JulieT will be leading the first preview/training run to go one full loop of the course. Remember there are will be only two weeks until race weekend. Please meet at the picnic and restroom area at the Maunalaha trail head (by the Hawaii Nature Center) at 6:30a.m. Bring a minimum of 32 oz of water as well as any nutrition (gels, energy bars, magic potions) you require, and most of all have fun. If you have not yet been on the Tantalus trails please make it a point to remain with Julie and the group, or be with someone who knows the course. Below is a map of the course. For those unfamiliar with the trails, please feel free to print a copy for reference along the training run. For the most part the race itself will consist of three loops of the course.

Everyone is welcome to join us for this training run – you don’t have to be registered for the Triple Trek race, and all levels of trail runners are encouraged to come! You don't have to run the full distance (or you can go longer), come and do as little or as much as you like.

Hope to see you on the trails!

Mahalo,

Julie, Fish, and Jeff (da 3T RDs)

Aloha athletes, 180340032

This Saturday, we’ll be back at the Maunawili Trail for a preview run for the Maunawili Out and Back (aka - Run With the Pigs). As always, there are many options for start times and locations - do what works for you. There will be a group starting at the Pali lookout at 6 am. If you plan to do the full distance (22 miles to turnaround point), please take care of your own refueling needs. Don't forget that it is a long and hot 11 miles each way and good hydration is absolutely imperative.

  • Where: Nuuanu-Pali Lookout (map) There are NO bathrooms at the lookout. The nearest public restroom is at a park located on the Kokohead side of the Pali Highway, off of Puiwa Road in Nuuanu. Please plan accordingly.
  • WARNING - There have been numerous break-ins at the lookout over the years; lock up and DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR VEHICLE!

There are only 2 slots left for the relay, grab em while you can! Also a reminder to order your pig gear by July 26th created by the fabulous Melanie Decker Designs. We are offering short sleeve dri-fit shirts, both men's and women's styles. Women's will be pink; Men's will be grey. Pink trucker hats are also available.
