H.U.R.T. 100 Update #1 12/21/08

Happy Holidays

As 2008 is nearing an end, 2009 is about to begin. As you all know the H.U.R.T. 100 begins the new 100 mile ultra season.For many of you it will be the first of several 100 mile attempts in the coming year, for others it might be the only attempt. In an effort to help make the beginning of the year successful for all of you out on the H.U.R.T. course,  rest assured that we have gone to great lengths to make the run as easy as possible. While we cannot control the weather and the effects it may have upon the trails we can control other factors which should prove beneficial for you in your attempt of taming the course. In the coming weeks and days we will be posting updates here to serve that purpose. This will then serve as our first update.

Runner Count:

We currently have over 100 runner's entered, but we anticipate that only 100 will actually start the event. If you will not be attending the event please notify PJ

Electrolyte Drink:

The aid station will be serving Succeed Ultra as the electrolyte drink once again this year. You can view the product here Succeed

Runner Numbers:

Run numbers will be assigned on or after 1/1/2009. and posted to the accepted runner list.


Parking at he Nature Center is very limited, please consider carpooling when possible.

Race Day Web Updates:

We will once again be updating your progress on our blog throughout the event. Once the race numbers are assigned we will update the list. Currently if you click on the race update link you will see a call for volunteers for these important communication positions for the event. If you have crew members or family members who might want to participate please contact those listed on the form.

Course Maps / Driving Maps:

Please print your own maps from the links on the blog as they will not be made available at check in this year. Although the course will be flagged with surveyor tape, the tape has been known to disappear during the course of the event.

Drop Bags:

Recall you will hit three aid stations (5) times. Pack your drop bags accordingly and bring them on race morning and not on Friday afternoon. Please have your bags marked with your name and number. The bags are likely to get wet (it always rains at night here). We will not be responsible for lost bags or for returning bags that are left at the finish line. Bags we be returned from the aid stations to the start finish line. Please retrieve them prior to 6 p.m. on Sunday night.

Monday Evening Dinner:

Our no hosted post race Dinner / Drinks will be held on Monday evening January 19,2009. Please see details in other post. It is important for us to get a decent head count.

Please return frequently to this site for future update.

H.U.R.T. 100 Post Race Dinner Announcement


Each year, one of the highlights (especially for us) is the Monday night banquet. It gives everyone a chance to relax after a very hard weekend and tell stories, have a glass of wine (or two) and enjoy the camaraderie of the HURT experience and each other. We also have some awards and giveaways, picture sharing and try very hard to make fun of as many runners as possible.

Last year we had over 150 people attend and had a ball!  Here's the problem, as much as we like the Willows Restaurant, we've just out grown it.................last year we were squeezed in tighter than Luis Escobar's %$%#.  We looked everywhere and came up with a great solution, Mid-Pacific Country Club in Lanikai.

In order to plan properly, we need a "ballpark" count from each of you so we can order enough food. We know it's a little early, but please send us by return e-mail an approximate attendee count for planning purposes.

Here are some facts for Mid Pacific............
Address 266 Ka'elepulu Drive, Kailua, Hawaii 96734 (808-262-8161).
Location, the windward side of the Island (about 20-25 minutes from  Waikiki or Honolulu. We will have specific directions available at Friday's  check in (or click here for a map and directions).
Plenty of FREE parking!
Cost is $40.00 (about $5-6 cheaper than last year). Children under 4 free,  children 4-11 $20.00.  Please pay at the door, cash or check only (no  credit cards).
Unlike last year, we will have wait service available for no-host  cocktails, wine or beer (at a more reasonable cost than last year).
We will be using their ballroom, a beautiful large room that seats 220,  with large windows and magnificent ocean and mountain views.
Seating will be tables of six with tons of room!
Time 5:30 (so you can catch the sunset) and the buffet will start about  6:30.
After you park, please use the main (right side) entrance of the club.
This is a fun event, please come.
PJ, Jeff & John
