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

Runners,

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.

Aloha,

Jeff

 

 


2015 HURT Lottery

Thank you all for the great 2015 HURT 100 lottery, special shout out to:

Jen and Bob for the fantastic facebook and twitter coverage of the event

Mark at Ultrasignup for his continous hard work and seamless transition from registration to kukui nut tabulation, then finally the waitlist and keeping us on track.

The runners who were brave enough to sign the dotted line and submit a registration form.

To those who did not get in, there is still the waitlist.

The numerous volunteers, aid station captains, trail safety folks, and public officials who make this event happen. Without your efforts this event would never get off the ground.

We selected 129 of our mandated 125-130 slots today. Before we can publish the wait list we need to clear the transactions of those 129. This could take 1-3 days depending upon circumstances. Please be patient as we move forward.

For those who are in book your ticket, for those who are in but vacillating think strongly if you really want to run the HURT 100 and keep in mind the deadlines to withdraw.

Great job all.
