Welcome Kealia Quad Crusher!

Yes! As some of you may have already heard, Run With A View has been reborn as the Kealia Quad Crusher. In its true HURT spirit, here is the description:

"Kealia Quad Crusher is a 9.2 mile trail run located at Kealia Trail above Dillingham Airfield. The race will be a two lap out & back course. It will start at the Kealia Trailhead, climb 2.3 miles to the top of Kealia Trail where it intersects with Ku'aokala Access Road. Runners will turn around at this intersection and head back down Kealia Trail, retracing the route they just climbed. Returning to the Start-Finish line, they will turn around and run the same route up and down the course. There is cut off time of 2 1/2 hours in order to do the second loop."

 Please join us on May 7, 2016, for this inaugural event. Click here to register!

Javelina Jundred Bound

We at HURT Hawaii have a "Sister Race" arrangement with Aravaipa Running Club (Nick & Jamil Coury) where we choose a volunteer from each club and give them complimentary entries into HURT100 and Javelina Jundred including travel expenses. Aravaipa and HURT have very similar philosophies and are both Ohana oriented.

This year we were pleased to host Thomas O’Reilly from Arizona at HURT100 2016. He ran the race, stayed with one of our HURT family in Lanikai, and attended the Monday banquet.

2015-08-29-HURT-Tantalus-Triple-Trek-2885We’ve chosen Jeff Fong, a very treasured HURT volunteer and trail series race director, to attend Javelina Jundred which will take place October 29-30, 2016, in the McDowell Mountain Regional Park of Fountain Hills, Arizona.

Congratulations and good luck to you, Jeff! We can’t wait to hear your running adventure... in the desert... with coyotes... on halloween.


Annual Post H.U.R.T. 100 Potluck (and short shuffle) SUNDAY January 24th @ 7:30am

Aloha Athletes, Hurt

Congrats to everyone who toed the line to run/volunteer/pace or help in any way at H.U.R.T. 100 2016! Another year is in the books and that means this Sunday we'll be doing our annual recovery "run". Please come out and share your stories, show off your injuries or just say hello. Meet at the Ho'omaluhia Gardens in Kaneohe (map) outside the garden at the gate at 7:30am.

Please make sure to stay quiet as this is a residential area. Round trip will probably take an hour or so to do an out and back in the garden (~5-miles). Those wanting a bit more can go to the Pali lookout and back, around 9 miles.

The garden opens at 9:00 for cars and we typically potluck all the way in at the last parking/picnic area starting between 9:30 - 10.

Aloha,

Rosie

Mahalo to all the awesome volunteers and Oahu Na Ala Hele for coming out this past weekend to work on the trails! Great results for all the efforts put in! Improvements along Kalawahine & Manoa Cliff trails make them almost highways! Was great having old & new friends working together! Hoping to setup another trail maintenance day soon. Happy holidays everyone!

Trail Maintenance

With the high amount of wet & windy weather we've been having, the trails have become both overgrown & blocked by debris. Please lend your kokua as we join up with Oahu Na Ala Hele to help make much needed repairs to the Tantalus trail systems.

We will be meeting at the Na Ala Hele base yard (top of the HNC driveway) to gather equipment then traveling out to areas needing work. Please wear clothes that won't restrict movement yet provide you with adequate protection from any debris. Wear good covered shoes, such as those for trail running or hiking. Na Ala Hele will provide the majority of the tools; however if you have any non-powered tools you wish to bring, please do so. But please be aware that you will be responsible for whatever you bring. Also bring adequate water for at least 5-hrs of work as well as snacks.

Date: December 19, 2015 (Saturday)
Time: 7:30AM
Address:
Na Ala Hele
2135 Makiki Heights Drive
Honolulu, Hawaii 96822

The HURT Hawaii Site: 10+ Years

Aloha Athletes,

As you have probably noticed, the HURT Hawaii site has a new look. This site was created a little over 10 years ago when blogging was still pretty new. Before this site, Don Fallis, Cheryl Loomis, as well as John and PJ Salmonson would organize weekly training runs and we would all find out about them either over the phone or via e-mail through a Yahoo group. We were a much smaller group back then and this was way before Facebook and other social media. 

Other runners at that time included Neal and Marian Yasuda, Rex Vlcek and Bob Murphy. Vernon Char was a regular on Friday evening night runs as well. There were many others. Arvel and Benita Shults started joining in as did Paul Sibley. Kat Tagaca also ran many of the runs. Mike Muench joined in at some point as well. Steve Dewald and Jim Masterson were part of the early groups too. I know there were many others and many before this as well. Pete Martinez was also very much involved. Brian Wilson ran a lot with us back then too. Ed Bugarin and Ben Cavazos were doing some crazy night runs. I know I am probably forgetting people and I apologize for that. Others runners included Jeff Huff, Nick Kaiser…the list goes on and on. 

Here is Don's introduction to the blog:

 This photo album shows many of the runners from back in that time period: http://hurthawaii.blogs.com/photos/2005_maunawili_out_back/index.html

So…with fond aloha and so many great memories, it is time for a new adventure. Barbi and I are flying out this week to our new home in Boise, ID. We are excited and looking forward to new trails, playing in the snow and being able to take road trips!

A big thank you to John and PJ for all they have done related to HURT and making this a great space for all of us to play.

I am also excited to see what evolves with HURT Hawaii. Augusto is taking over this site and the new look is just the start. 

Until we meet again!

Aloha, Bob & Barbi
