Update on the H.U.R.T. 100 Endurance Run

Aloha Runners,

We hope that this post finds you all well and gearing up on your H.U.R.T. training. PJ has been receiving applications hand over fist for the event and we will soon be at capacity. John and I decided today that as we get closer to capacity we will be removing the application from the site. Therefore, we would encourage you all to reach out to your friends and have them get their applications in so they don't miss out on running in a premier event. Once again thank you for all your continued support and confidence. Now get training!

Jeff and John

Here it is: The 2008 H.U.R.T. 100 Application

With much anticipation, the 2008 H.U.R.T. 100 race application is here. I have received inquires from all across the U.S. and from as far away as Iraq, asking when the application will be available.

It's here. Yep, or click here and get your application in. As I said before, your training runs and commitment will definitely take on a new dimension once you send in the application and entry fee. There is something about setting a goal and making a commitment that motivates most people to strive a little harder.

We look forward to seeing you in January!!

Instructions for the H.U.R.T. 100 Application

Aloha Runners,

I see the timer counting down to the much anticipated day of June 19, 2007. I have been informed by Bob that this site will have the 2008 H.U.R.T. 100 application available at 12:01 a.m.on 6/19/07. You just might want to set your alarms and be the first to print it out, and get in the morning mail. However, before you go through all that trouble we would like you to do the following.  As many of you know we don't believe in many rules and we really do want to keep things simple, but the following are must do items;

1.) Read the Runner's Rules and procedures on the site before signing and sending your application. We have adopted a couple new things this year and we will hold the runner's responsible.

2.) Print out the application and fill it out in it's entirety. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

3.) Print legibly, so that PJ can make sure we get the appropriate spelling of your name.

4.) Enclose a check for $140.00. We will not hold spots without funds.

5.) Mail your completed entry ASAP.

A canceled check will be your proof of acceptance into the race. We will provide periodic updates with the accepted runner list on this site and let you know how many slots are still available. Please be patient as this process is normally done during all of our leisure hours.

Wishing you all the best. Thank you for considering the H.U.R.T. 100 for your 2008 calendar.

HURT Thank You and Training Thank You

Here's a couple of e-mails received lately. One is thanking us for the support during the HURT 100 and the other is thanking us for a training run.

Hello to Everyone who helped with H.U.R.T #7

I would like to thank everyone that helped with the H.U.R.T. 7.  Each aid station person was so helpful and encouraging.   I felt like I had a top ranked NASCAR pit crew getting me in and out of the aid stations.  I also learned quite a bit during the run, poor choice in hydration pack - it was to hard for the aid station folks to fill, should have bought gaiters, diced Power Bars and boiled potatoes are the best food on the planet after 20 miles or so, company in the dark is nice even if it is brief, the mud from the trail is impervious to washing - but I have a cool set of brown tied dyed socks and matching singlet now and going downhill for a flatlander is much easier than uphill.  Following the run I logged onto the Ultrarunning website and have planned the rest of my 2007 calendar year runs.  It would be an honor if I was allowed to participate in your event again in 2008, hopefully wiser and maybe a little faster.

You folks run the best event I have ever participated in.  The spirit of Aloha lives within each of you, thanks for all your hard work getting an event like this to completion.


Liz Shy, MT (ASCP)

Hi Bob,

Thank you for the very enjoyable run on Sat. Jan. 27.  It was really nice meeting everyone that day and getting to see some beautiful areas.  I came back home on Sunday, Feb. 4, to single digit weather with a wind chill below zero.  I'm so glad I got that run in with all of you!
Good Luck to all who are training for Run to the Sun!
Thank you to Elisa for the ride back to the ship.
I hope to see everyone at a race sometime...

Mahalo to all the 2007 HURT 100 Supporters

We want to thank everyone who supported the 2007 HURT 100. Putting on a race like this would be extremely difficult without the generous support from many people and organizations.

Leon Draxler sent me a disc with a lot of great photo's from the HURT 100. Some are a bit dark but they show great shots of the trails and of the runners.

Thanks Leon!

Via e-mail from Frank MacMillan

I'm back on the mainland but I wanted to point out to the blog that David Carlsson not only completed 100k at HURT but a week later placed 'first' in the Hilo to Volcano run in case you guys didn't know.  Great work for a guy who a month ago was just trying to get under 3 hours at Honolulu Marathon (and he did).  I'm pretty sure this is the same guy (last name misspelled in Big Dog's results) as I talked to him before the race and he is the only David in the finishers.  He was camping near Akaka Falls and said ran into the New Mexico HURT runners.

I was still sore and could barely stay ahead of the Cowman though it was nice to have a course with only a few banyan roots in the first ½ mile.

Mahalo to our Volunteers!

Congratulations to all the 100M and 100K finishers at the HURT Trail 100 this past weekend.  You were all fantastic out there!

For any successful race, there are many behind-the-scene individuals who put great time and effort into making everything come together.

I would like to extend a heartfelt “Mahalo” to the following individuals and their -Aid Station crews:

Vernon Char, Carolyn Hayashi, and crew did another outstanding job at Paradise Park in Manoa.  Vernon has run this aid station for every HURT - his early morning pancakes are legendary!

John and PJ worked very, very hard at Nature Center to track runners and get them back out on the course, certainly no easy task.  Their traditional Kalua Pig sandwiches made great fuel for many entrants.

Don Fallis and volunteers marked the course before race day, then returned Monday to take everything down.  Don worked hard to keep the timing board updated.

Without Joel Jenkins and his Medical crew’s hard work, many runners would have called it a day and gone home to nurse their blisters and aches. Joel was literally everywhere!  His professionalism and attention to detail is second to none.

As for Mudd Butt’s Café in Nuuanu, I owe a deep debt to Patricia Carroll, who was my right hand.  Besides putting up with my planning for the entire year preceding HURT,  Trish packed all runner bags, helped at the pre-race check-in, and assembled the post-race lucky draw gifts. She then worked the aid station for +36 hours from the initial set-up.  Trish made sure runners got their drop bags and assisted with timing and tracking of runners.  I believe her when she said running the race is easier!


Mae Martinez and Vanessa Huff also worked the entire 36 hours – their organization and constant attention to detail amazed me! Mae also helped purchase much of the necessary supplies for our aid station.  At Mudd Butt’s Café, Mae kept the supplies organized and the food flowing in the food tent.  If you have every wondered where those lovely Hawaiian Print bags come from, Mae sews each one!


Vanessa kept up our timing sheet, updated the runner board, and worked with the Ham Radio operators for the entire race.  Her wonderful kids, Katie and Matthew, along with Bryson took injured runners back to NC and made our pizza run.  Vanessa also took care of her hubby, the “Huffer”, when he pulled in… again, no easy task!

Neil and Marian Yasuda not only worked in the morning, but they also paced local runners on loop #3.  The Yasudas then returned Sunday morning to help break everything down and transport gear back to the NC.

Fellow runner, Freddy Halmes was the maestro in our kitchen, keeping runners fed and hydrated. Freddy had so much fun he stayed through the evening until Sunday morning!

Good friend Christine Shiinoke flew in from San Francisco, just to work the aid station on Saturday.  She then geared up to pace Steph on loop #3.  What an animal!

My fellow worker Clinton Wong, dropped in early Saturday morning to help set up the lights and anything electrical – his expertise was most appreciated!

Toby Kravet, our esteemed bell ringer, did a wonderful job.  We certainly knew when runners were approaching the aid station!  Next time we will give him a kazoo to go along with the bell.

Peggy Regentine, Stote Farnham,  Jane Sarven, Heather McCafferty, Johnny Landeza, Les Omura, Jim Carr, and Naomi Sakai did a fantastic job keeping the liquids flowing and the runners going!  A very special thanks to Jane for filling up our water cans and returning later in the evening to work some more. Jonathan Miller came Sunday afternoon to help with breakdown and clean-up.

Almost all our workers are long-time road and or trail runners who graciously gave up their free time to help.  Thank you all so much for your time and assistance!


Still Lost: Post HURT 100

We're still missing an iPod Shuffle. Now that all of you have had time to get home and unpack all of your race bags, did anyone find an iPod Shuffle? We sure would like it back, no questions asked.

They are so small, it would be easy to miss. The last I saw it, I gave it to Barbi at the end of Loop 2/Start of Loop 3, at the Nature Center and she was putting it in a ziplock bag. She thought it ended up in my drop bag. Unfortunately it did not. I feel really bad since it was hers and I was borrowing it for the race.

So how are your legs? I got out and ran this morning. My legs are fine, I just found myself getting winded fast. I thought that was strange.

Aloha, Bob

Photos from the 2007 HURT 100

Hawaii runner Arturs Pridanovs was out on the trails during the HURT 100 and around some of the aid stations taking lots (200+) of photographs. Click here to view. Click on the first one to enlarge it.

He got some great shots. Fun for me to see as I get to see everyone else. If you see something you like here, I might be able to e-mail you the original if you ask nice. :-)

For those whose shots are a bit blurry, you were just moving way to fast!

Thanks Arturs!
