2011 H.U.R.T. 100 Runner Selection Statement

Dear Runners,


It has been an
incredible 10-year run for the H.U.R.T. Trail 100 Mile Endurance Run. During
that time we have seen the run grow in popularity, and we have witnessed the
improvement in the quality of the run and the runner’s who participate in the
event. In an attempt to continue this improvement process we will be
implementing some new processes for the 2011 edition of the H.U.R.T. 100.


Beginning with the 2011 event
we will be utilizing the services of
for our race registration. The open date for registration will begin on July
31, 2010 at 8:00 (HST) and last for 5 days only. The application and credit
card payment will all be done electronically.


Beginning this year
(2011 event) we will institute the H.U.R.T. 100 lottery algorithm whereby applicants will be
awarded Kukui nuts in the lottery process to increase ones chances of being
selected. Kukui nuts will be awarded based upon various criteria including, but
not limited to the following:


·      Previous
H.U.R.T. 100 finishes

·      Previous
H.U.R.T. 100 starts

·      Previous
100 mile experience or lack thereof

·      Aloha
spirit and sportsmanship or lack thereof

·      Harmonious
mix of Hawaii, Mainland and International runners

·      Considerable
services to HURT or to trail maintenance of the HURT trails


It is our hopes that
these criteria will help us to achieve our objective of providing the


·      Homogenous
group of race entrants from the front of the pack to the back of the pack.

·      Opportunity
for both the first time 100 hundred-mile runners and the first time H.U.R.T.
100 mile runner to get into the run.

·      Reward
those runners who have supported the H.U.R.T. 100 over the years.

·      Reward
and develop the Aloha spirit and sportsmanship among the participants in order
to make the H.U.R.T. 100 truly unique.

·      Maintaining the high
quality of the event.

Much Aloha,

John, Jeff & PJ.
