We have hammered out the details. There will be a HURT 100 Lottery Slection Show that goes live on 8/7/11 at 2 p.m. (HST) from the Huff house. Mark will have the kukui nuts loaded in the computer and ready for selection.
All entered runners and significant others are invited to this potluck event. Huff will provide, beer, soda, juice, water, teri and vege burgers and some sort of hot dog.
We are currently working with ESPN to simulcast the event on ESPN 2 opposite the Yankee / Red Sox game. Our thought is we can pull down a larger viewership than the game can, they think otherwise. Such fools!
What you need to do to attend:
1. Be registered for the HURT 100 at Ultrasignup or be a significant other for one who is registered. Kids always welcome, I have a small yard out back with a dog that loves to run.
2. Get to my place at 1 p.m. on 8/7/11, lottery starts at 2 p.m. My address is 1639 Ala Makani Place in Moanalua Valley. Need directions..... Google it.
3. Bring a salad or other dish to share.
4. Be a good sport, if you're not selected, no crying. There is no crying in Ultrarunning. Instead, offer to help with the safety patrol or at an aid station.
5. It may be worth your while to be at the lottery selection show. (Hint)
Things to remember when registering at Ultrasignup:
1. Please upload a picture file, we would like to see the real you or similar likeness.
2. Order your dinner tickets before checkout.
3. Use a credit card to check out. If using debit card those funds will be frozen during the pre authorization until the date of selection. Credit card will only be billed if selected. No credit card? Work with a friend to figure it out. The system is set up to not take cash.
4. Answer the questions. Most of the questions pertain to 100 mile finishes not credit for 100 km completed.
5. We can only select 125 runners. The slots are highly coveted, if you feel you cannot commit the time to train wait until next year and save the slot for someone who wants to run.
If you need any questions answered shoot me an e mail at email@example.com.
We are @ 13 days out from going live with the race application for the 2012 HURT 100. For those of you who are interested in securing a spot in the weighted lottery for 1 of the 125 entry slots you need to do the following.
Read "The Book of HURT, A.D. 2012" at HURT 100. The book which includes all you need to know about the event has undergone major revisions. Mahalo to AJ Tauber and Harald Ebeling for the task that consumed the last 4 months of their spare time. For those who have run HURT before, you must still read this book. At race signup you will be asked to certify that you have read the booklet in its entirety. You will also want to peruse the new maps on the site. Many man hours were put into these to make the course easier to understand, and more accurate in our race measurements.
Register for the run. The application goes live on 7/31/11 at 12:00 a.m. (HST). The application will be pulled as the clock strikes midnight on 8/6/11. You need to register for the run here. We ask that you upload a picture of yourself on the site, or a photo that you feel best represents you.
Please note then when you register for the run, you will also have the option of purchasing your banquet tickets at checkout. We strongly urge you to purchase your banquet tickets at the this time.
Watch for the lottery, which we anticipate to occur on 8/7/11. More details on the lottery and possible lottery bash will be posted at a later date.
If you have questions / concerns please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, but do so after reading the booklet.
On behalf of the HURT 100, thank you for your continued interest in our event.
We are less than 30 days from the application going live for the 2012 running of the H.U.R.T. 100. Several changes are being made to this year's event. Most noticeably you will find an updated and edited race booklet courtesy of AJ Tauber and Harald Ebeling which will soon be posted on this site. You will want to read the booklet in it's entirety before committing to the race. Many of the sections have been streamlined and the rules section revamped.
Similar to last year we will be employing the services of Mark Gilligan as our race registrar at www.ultrasignup.com to make for a smooth and easy application / lottery process.
As an added bonus we will be selling post race (January 16,2012) banquet tickets when you register on line for the race, making your one stop shopping much easier.
We are still contemplating a live lottery selection party at the Huff residence (August 14,2011) as we select the entrants for the 2012 event. We aren't certain if it is something the local runners would want to participate in. If you think its a good idea please feel free to comment to this post and we will gauge your interest that way.
Be sure to check back at this in mid July as the information will be coming fast and furious.
It is starting to get spring-like on the mainland. We hope all of you have enjoyed the first quarter of 2011.
The process for entering an application to participate in the 2010 H.U.R.T. 100 will be very similar to the 2011 process. The application will go live on July 31, 2011 (7/31/11) at 12:01 a.m. HST. The application will stay up until 11:59 p.m. on August 6, 2011 (8/6/11). At that point, application to the 2012 H.U.R.T. 100 will closed.
The countdown timer to the left is also a link to this site.
We will again be holding a lottery/drawing process drawing to fill the slots for the race. Again, details will be similar to the 2011 process. The drawing will take place on August 14th. More details will be coming out over the next several weeks.
Just a reminder that the HURT 100 is again a qualifying entry race for The North Face Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc. This would be for the 2012 race as the 2011 entry has already taken place and I believe the race is full.
The logo and link for this race is located on the lower left side of our site. I think there are four different races that are included in this event. Nick Kaiser has participated in the CCC version the last few years if you want to talk with someone locally who has been there.
Gary Robbins and Tracy Garneau as well as other top runners were at the 2010 race but it was somewhat stormed out. Both are planning to be at the 2011 race.
Andrea Stout took a lot of really great photos (600+) throughout the race starting with the pre-race briefing all the way to the finish. I have taken these photos and broke them into 7 slideshows. If there is a photo that you see that you would like to have, feel free to download it directly from the Flickr site. Since she was here to support Sarah, Marian, and Ashley, there might be a few more photos of them, however, there are lots of other great photos here. Thank you Andrea for sharing your work and making the photos available for others.
