Electrolytes, Volunteers and Periscope

For the HURT100 participants, we WILL NOT be able to dispense any electrolyte pills, so please bring your own. Also please bring your own pain and upset stomach medications. Gatorade will be the sports drink at the aid stations this year.

Nuuanu Aid Station is still open for volunteers!
Nature Center is in need of a conch shell blower and someone to carry out our recyclables Sunday at 6:30pm, at the end of the race.

Are you spectating, volunteering, and/or crewing for the HURT100 and plan to use Periscope to take live videos? If you are interested to share your videos to HURT100 fans, click the Live Video Feed link.

Saturday January 10th: Annual Week before H.U.R.T. 100 Trek Loop @ 7am

Aloha Athletes and Happy New Year! Photo by Rob Lahoe, Scot flying over the roots in Pauoa flats

For those running, pacing, and volunteering at the H.U.R.T. 100 we are less than 2 weeks away!

This Saturday, as per tradition, we are planning to run a reverse Trek loop (~10 miles) at an easy pace this Saturday starting at 7:00 a.m. from the Nature Center. Meet at the picnic tables and invite your pacer's and let's get a bunch of people out there on the trails. In years past, we have even had some early arrivals from the mainland join us.

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


Pace Calculator for HURT 100


Frank Schnekenburger has added the past 3 years of HURT data to his race analyzer at Ultra Splits. The site has some incredible historical data and will serve useful in preparation for the HURT 100. Thank you Frank for the fantastic work.

To those entered in the HURT, I would encourage you to look at the site and take advantage of the many attributes.
