Join us for the Annual Week before H.U.R.T. 100 Trek Loop Training

Aloha Athletes and Happy New Year!

For those running, pacing, and volunteering at the HURT 100 we are a mere 10 days away! Ken

We are planning to run a reverse Trek loop (~10 miles) at an easy pace this Saturday 1/11 starting at 7:00 a.m. from the Nature Center. Invite your pacer's and let's get a bunch of people out there. In years past, we have even had some early arrivals from the mainland join us.

If you can't make it, Mark Speck will also be taking some pacers and patrollers out this Fri, 1/10, evening for some night ops from 6:30 - 8:30. It will be a short out and back from Paradise Park to the beginning of JAG and back. About 2hrs to test night equipment and nighttime trail orientation. We will meet on Manoa Rd on the righthand side after the last bus stop.

We are looking forward to seeing all our visiting friends and H.U.R.T. ohana!

Aloha Athletes and Happy New Year!  OK, we are down to the wire here for those running, pacing, and volunteering at the HURT 100. I wrote the RD this morning and asked him why he chose the dryest month of the year to hold the race as it again looks as if the trails will be dried out by race day. (P.S. He hasn't responded)  We are planning to run a reverse Trek loop at an easy pace this Saturday starting at 7:00 a.m. from the Nature Center.

REQUEST FOR VOLUNTEERS 2014 HURT100 Race, Nature Center, Start-Finish Line

The Hawaiian Ultra Running Team (HURT), is putting on the fourteenth annual 100 mile trail race on Jan. 18 and 19th.  We start at the Makiki Nature Center on Sat at 6am. The cut-off is Sunday, 6pm.

My husband, John, and I, are organizing the start-finish line aid station, and putting together our team of volunteers again. We will also have a contingent of volunteers from Tripler, thanks to Joel Jenkins.

Basically our volunteers help prepare aid station food- fruit, sandwiches, cookies, soups- and keep levels of the water and Gatorade coolers full. Volunteers also greet the runners as they come in, and cater to their every needs- help them get to their drop bag, fill their water bottles, show them where the food it, cheer them on! etc.

After the 6am start, the runners start coming back into our aid station late Saturday morning, from the first of five 20 mile loops. The route is Nature Center- Paradise Park- Nuuanu Jackass Ginger- Nature Center, via the trails. They run throughout the night, and some right up to 6 pm Sunday.

Half of our runners are from the mainland, Canada, China, & Japan, Iceland, Russia, Chili, Australia, Germany this year. It is inspiring to watch them come in and out of our aid station, and rewarding to help them get through a grueling race.

We are looking to fill the following shifts with about three-four volunteers each shift:

·         Sat     10 am to 4 pm    lot of food prep and kitchen set up for the duration

·         Sat     4 pm to 10pm-    the usual runner assistance

·         Sat     10 pm to Sun 4 am           "

·         Sun     4am to 10 am                  "

·         Sun     10 am to 5 pm                 "

·         Sun      5 pm to 7 pm  tear-down and clean-up

Other miscellaneous jobs include:

·         1 pm Friday for the Mandatory Runner's Mtg- parking nazi for 2 hours, at entrance to Nature Center

·         4:15 am Saturday, parking Nazi at entrance to Nature Center, until 5:45 am

·         7 am to 10 am- help with aid station set-up (organize runner's drop bags)

·         5:30 am- set up glow lights along beginning of trail for the start

·         An aid station volunteer to replace PJ (out on special duty) for about 5 hours, some time middle of the night

·         on- call gofers,  any time

If you wish to volunteer, please email PJ at hurtpals@aol.com, or call me at 351-1453 to I can schedule you in.   Many thanks, PJ Salmonson
