Saturday Training: 7-9-05

Ho’omaluhia Botanical Park Entrance to Waimanalo (via Maunawili Trail) and Back

This Saturday starts a series of longer runs, however we are offering options for those runners who want to run less distance.

Total Distance: Approximately 30 miles

Meet time: 5:50 a.m. outside the entrance of Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden (Kaneohe). Please be quiet as we are parking on the street in the neighborhood.

Start time: 6:00 a.m.

Alternative or Shorter Distance Start Option: 6:45 a.m. meet us at Hairpin Turn Lookout on the Pali Highway. Approximately 20 miles if running to Waimanalo and back or any lessor distance by turning around earlier. Starting at the Waimanolo end is an option too (9:00 a.m.).

Total Time: 6-1/2 to 7-1/2+ hours

Please bring plenty of water/sports drink and your own nutritional needs. Don’t forget electrolytes-it is summer time and very hot. We will have water and limited aid stashed at the Hairpin turn and in Waimanalo.
