Saturday Training 3/24/07: Top of Tantalus Preview Run

Aloha Athletes,

This Saturday many of the usual HURT running group will be off to Maui to participate in the Run to the Sun. We wish all the runners good luck in this great event.

However for those of you who are interested in doing something here on Oahu, a small group will be gathering up at Puu Ualakaa Park. From here we will run the route of the first race in the HURT Trail Series, Top of Tantalus. So if you are interested in checking out this course and/or want to practice for the race, please join us.

Meeting time: 6:50 am

The road is closed on the short way to Puu Ualakaa Park. This is due to the mudslides during the heavy rains of 2006 and continuing road work.

Please go the other way (the long way) to get to the park.  It’s 7.5
miles vs. 2.5 miles.  Turn at the pumping station and go left up and
around Tantalus.

Training: One loop on the course

Distance: 7 +  miles

Duration: 1.5 – 2 hours

Bring: Water-at least one bottle and snacks to get yourself through one loop.
