HURT 100 Video from Paul Sibley

As many of you know, Paul Sibley had his own reasons for completing the HURT 100 this year. A year ago, he pulled out after being diagnosed with cancer. Click this link to view his success in 2007.

HURT 100 Photo's from Leon Draxler

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!

It's going to be a great race!!

Less than 24 hours to Start Time

Lots of last minute race preparation going on today. Trails are being marked, aid station supplies are being packed and rechecked, and some of us are still organizing our drop bags.

We've got the pre-race meeting this afternoon (3:30 p.m. at the Nature Center) which is always fun as it is a great time to see all the runners prior to the start.

Important Note: To communicate with this site during the race, use the comments feature and click on comments after each post. Race volunteers will be busy and with the addition of HAM radio volunteers, we hope to be able to offer regular and frequent updates. I will be running so I will obviously not be checking my e-mail until Monday.

Good luck to all the runners!! Aloha, Bob

Fun Run Update-Conditions on the HURT Course

A lot of people showed up for today's fun run--the last trail run before the HURT 100. There was a minor glitch at the beginning as the lower gate to the Nature Center parking lot was locked until past 7:00 a.m. Finally a resident who lives up there was leaving and opened the gate. Many of us were just parked on the road below the gate.

Though it was raining at the start and the sky looked threatening, we had no rain on our ten mile loop. With all the rain we have had this past week, the course was pretty wet and muddy. I was surprised how much blow-down there was of trees. Obviously it's been windy up there this past week as well.

When we finished the loop, we came across the HURT Race Directors and crew. They were discussing race details and some HAM radio operators were testing their equipment. That's cool that we will have the HAM radio folks helping us out this year. We should be able to communicate much more effectively between aid stations and also be able to post good updates here for those following the race on-line.

Get lots of rest this week, eat healthy, and pack those drop bags, and see you at the pre-race meeting! Aloha, Bob
