And just like that, it's February! How are you guys doing? feeling? coping? Personally, I can't wait for July to come so that I can put my name in the hat! But enough about me...
Let's put our hands together again and congratulate Michael Arnstein and Shawn McTaggart for winning HURT100 2017! You can view the full results at UltraSignup.
A quick announcement from PJ
"I have an assortment of volunteer shirt sizes if anyone did not get the shirt they wanted. Please call PJ and 351-1453."
The coupon code is HURT100, and runners can simply type it in during checkout and they will receive 20% off their purchase.
The next HURT100 will be on January 13 and 14, 2018. We will announce the lottery registration by the 3rd week of July. In the meantime, here's a compilation of various media with permission from different sources to hopefully get you motivated to register again.
Have I overloaded you with all things HURT100 yet?! ;)
If I've missed anyone or if you would like to share your HURT100 (2017) experience with us, please comment below and I will add it to this post.
Mahalo! I hope to see you all next year.
This year our annual post-race shuffle and picnic at the Hoomaluhia Botanical Gardens is going to be slightly modified. Unfortunately they are not allowing run groups in to the park without a permit, and those aren’t granted till after 4pm. So we’re going to continue our tradition of having our annual picnic starting around 10am but do a quick run close by but outside the park.
For the run, let’s meet at 7:00am near the Koolau Golf Club / First Presbyterian Church at 45-550 Kionaole Rd. After parking in the lot, run back down the road a little till you get to the last turn where you came in (this is where we’ll be meeting). From there we’ll turn right and head up the old road all the way up to Pali Highway, where we can cross underneath the highway to meet up another trail which leads to Pali Lookout. I think it’s only a few miles but not exactly sure ;)
If just coming to the picnic, after entering the Hoomaluhia Botanical Gardens, drive in through the gate and keep an eye out for the sign that says ‘Kahua Kukui’ - it is the Polynesian section of the park and the entrance is lined with Kukui trees and this is where we will be meeting. Please bring a dish to share along with your best stories from the weekend! Bonus points for wearing cat pants!
See you Saturday!

It's a very wet, windy, and soggy day here in Hawaii. I know we shouldn't complain given the weather this past week on much of the mainland.
Nothing like 30 miles out on the HURT course to bring you back to reality in regards to fitness and training. Glad I got my run in yesterday. I think Steve Dewald and Mike Muench were probably glad as well given today's weather.
We even canceled our trail work day due to the weather. No use going out and digging in the mud. Chances are we would have just made it worse.
Congratulations to all those who got into Western States. The lottery was today and Hawaii runners selected include, Cheryl Loomis, Steve Dewald, and Jeff Huff. Former Hawaii resident, Judy Carluccio also got in. For all of you who didn't get in--there are lots of other races out there.
Finally, by not being out training, I got to see UCLA upset USC. Wow, what a game. Looking forward to Hawaii versus Oregon State tonight.
As a heads up, next weekend is the Honolulu Marathon and a lot of HURT runners will be pounding the pavement in this race. The following weekend on Saturday, December 16th, HURT runners will be running a 50 mile training day. Plan on a 5:00 a.m. start and lots of hours on the trail. Watch the blog for more details.
Good training and stay dry out there.
