Saturday Training 5-20-06

Aloha Athletes !

Last Saturday’s HURT Trail Series race "Run With A View", was a blast, with 62 runners, many of which were the fastest I’ve seen at any HURT Trail Series race. "What a horse race !"  I’d like to thank everyone who volunteered…we couldn’t do it without you…especially co-race director Cheryl Loomis, Gordon Lau (who did all the trail maintenance), Rex Vlcek, Kat Tagaca, Joel Jenkins, and to HURT guru Big John Salmonson. Mahalo, everyone !

Saturday Training 5-20-06  "Kuliouou Ridge Trail"

As a special, rare treat, we will be doing the beautiful Kuliouou Ridge Trail.

Meeting time: 5:50 am

Starting time: 6:00 am

Meeting place: End of paved road (Kalaau Place) see directions below

Training: One or more out-and-back to the summit overlook

Distance: 5 miles per loop

Duration: 1 1/2 hours (ave.) per loop

**NOTE: Park on the street and PLEASE BE QUIET while in the neighborhood, as the homes are very close to the street. We will meet at the very end of the street to minimize noise. You may have to park a distance away, since street parking is limited.

Directions: Heading from town in the Koko Head direction, pass Aina Haina and continue past Niu Valley Shopping Center (approx. .8 mile) to the traffic light at Kuliouou Rd. Take a left on Kuliouou Rd. and head mauka for over a half-mile until you see Kalaau Pl., where you take a right. Go to the end of Kalaau Pl. and look for street parking.  See ya there !
