December 2018

Trail Menehunes Strike Again

A BIG Mahalo from myself, Jeff Fong, John, and PJ to everybody who came out yesterday morning to do some serious trail maintenance work.
 
20181230 Trail Maintenance
(Many more volunteers who helped up are not in this photo)
We had an awesome group of people to work on a long overdue trail widening project. We split up in smaller groups to cover a wide area of Kalawahine and Manoa Cliff.  We also cut many fallen trees out of the way including the big tree on Nahuina. If you go out there for training or just for fun, I'm sure you will notice the transformation and appreciate the work of the volunteers.
 
Thank you for coming out for this weekend and the one a couple weeks ago! Many new faces this time and everybody put in a full effort to get the trails ready for HURT 2019. Thank you John & PJ for sending out another call for volunteers! I think we are good to go for the race!
 
Wishing everybody in our HURT OHANA and extended family a Happy New Year!

Last Call For Trail Maintenance, 12/30

Aloha all!
 
Our final trail kokua day is on Sunday, 12/30. Please meet at 7:30am in the Nature Center picnic area (bathrooms). Be advised that parking is limited up along the access road between the residential homes and the Na Ala Hele (NAH) base yard. While NAH will provide tools for us to use, please feel free to bring your own personal favorite implement.
 
We will carpool up to the Kalawahine trail head to widen as well as to clear overgrown vegetation along select areas of the trail. The plan is to work until 12:30pm, returning to the Nature Center by 1pm.
 
Weather and trail conditions are variable this time of year so plan to wear appropriate clothing that will provide adequate comfort and protection. Pants, long sleeves & closed toe shoes are highly recommended. Please also bring your own supply of water to drink. At least 2 liters are recommended. Feel free to also bring some snacks.
 
If there are any questions, please contact us.
 
Mahalo for your support!
John, Freddy, and Jeff

Trail Maintenance, 12/30

12782379_10154042492947764_1627471245_nHURT100 runners,

We have a last effort trail maintenance on the course December 30, 2018, at 7:30AM. If you are running the race, local to Oahu, and you haven’t done any trail work, now is the time!

Freddy Halmes and Jeff Fong have personally taken the challenge of maintaining our course all year along with a small band of faithful volunteers, so it’s time we helped them. Almost all the Mainland 100s have mandatory 4-8 hour trail work as a provision to enter. We don’t (yet), so please come and spend at least 4 hours helping Freddy and Jeff and the gang.

Let's connect with Freddy or Jeff near the Hawaii Nature Center picnic area (bathrooms). Comment below this post if you can make it.

Please call me me with any queries. We sincerely appreciate your kokua!
