For this week, were heading back to the N. shore, up to the Dillingham/Peacock area. This is a great training area and has worked out really well for those training for Run to the Sun and also other longer runs on the mainland. Hope you can make it!
Meeting time: 6:45 am (Please be on time–allow an hour drive from Honolulu/Windward.)
Starting time: 7:00 am
Meeting place: Dillingham Airfield (drive to the far end of
Dillingham Airfield and turn left into the last gate…circle around
back and park in the parking lot.)
Training: One loop followed by an optional reverse
loop. Up Kealia Trail, across on the Kuaokala Access Road and down the
Mokule’ia Access Road and back to the parking area at Dillingham
Airfield using Farrington Highway. Reverse this for the second loop.
Distance: Approximately 14+ miles per loop
Time: Ave-2-1/2 hrs per loop
IMPORTANT !! Bring plenty of water and carry minimum of 50-70 oz. per loop.
Plan ahead and bring all the water/sports drink/food
that you will need to survive, as there will only be one water re-fill
area. This can be a very dry, hot area and you will most-likely consume
more fluids than normal. A hat and sunscreen are a must !
