Kaena Point Firecracker 10 Mile Race: Saturday July 5, 2008 7:00 a.m.

Aloha Athletes,

The Big Bang is Here!!Firecracker
Saturday, is the Kaena Point Firecracker 10 Mile Race.  This is always a popular race in the trail series and typically draws a big crowd from visiting fast road runners to dedicated trail runners and even those who just want a chance to hike Kaena Point.

As with all of our trail races, entry is just $10 and we ask that you show up 30 minutes prior to race start or by 6:30 a.m. There is no pre-registration. More details including driving instructions to the start can be found here.

Barbi and I checked out the course this past Sunday and it is in excellent shape. The washout plank is gone and there is a new trail cut above the old washout. Experienced runners will have to look for this trail before getting to the washout–it’s about 100 yards before the actual washout.

Remember, we always hang out a bit afterwards and have a potluck so bring something to share, a beach chair, your sunscreen and hat. There is a place where runners typically cool off in the ocean too.

See you bright and early on Saturday!

Bob and Barbi

P.S. No bathrooms available at start/finish and at Mokuleia Beach Park, porta potties only. Plan accordingly.
