Aloha Runners,

Many of you will start your HURT training in earnest this month -you will visit sections of the race course last seen in January during HURT VI.

While running in lower Nuuanu a few weeks ago, Patricia and I encountered numerous blue numbers spray-painted on the tall pines, lots of flagging tape, and hip-chain strings – all in the "Enchanted forest" area.  Needless to say, we were surprised at the extent of the spray-painting!

Inquiries were made to DLNR.  Apparently Forestry, OISC, and Wildlife were/are concurrently surveying the Honolulu Mauka Trail system.  Aaron of DLNR has reminded their workers to keep management markings to a minimum and to find more creative ways to meet their management objectives.

Good luck with your training!
