Runners Thoughts on the HURT 100-Mile Endurance Run

There have been a couple of really good write-ups this year by past runners of the HURT 100-Mile Endurance Run posted to the Ultra list. We got permission from the authors to post them on our site because these are so well written that they really read like advertisements or promos for the race. (Click here to read them) Thanks Peter and Jimmy!

Because of this, we have decided to offer a contest that will be open from now until October 1st. The best written (under 200 words) promo or endorsement of the HURT 100 race will receive a free entry into the 2007 race. The winning entry will be chosen by three HURT members. By the way, Peter and Jimmy's entrys will be considered for this contest! The winner will be notified by October 15th.

Winning entries may not be transferred. If the runner can't participate in the 2007 race, the entry can be used at the race in 2008 (However, no extensions beyond 2008). All entries may be posted on the HURT site. E-mail all entries to kailuamac@yahoo.com

Sorry went make one mistake.

Last line should read:

"What really the Hurt 100 but only seem that way. 100 miles or 100 kilometers it is one HURT way to get there."

I been all lepo and sweaty and pilau for so long I can no remember for when I was something else. It’s too dark and rainy and this Manoa trail is all alive with lapu and menahune who are very huhu bout me waking them up so late at night. They been throwing rocks on and off the trail causing little landslides that echo infront and behind me, and making the bamboo go clack, clack, clack in cadence with my unsteady foot steps, following my along like a drummer’s roll for a condemned man on his way to the gallows. I try run faster but I got this really big raw spot in that place where the mud collects between my legs, so I only gimp along bowlegged taunted by the spirits of the dark valley. Fleeing endlessly through the rain along the steep slippery muddy trail, the cliff tops mocking me, never letting me gain the crest, I go pinch myself for make this one bad dream but can no wake up from what I remember is the HURT 1000.

So you want one special time too? Go try the HURT 1000! What really the Hurt 100 but only seem that way. 100 miles or 100 kilometers it is one hard way to get there.
