On July 3, the H.U.R.T. Trail Series heads to end of the road and Kaena Point.
This race is a fast,
flat, out and back course that
parallels the ocean along jeep trails and an old sugar cane rail line.
Kaena Point Firecracker 10 Mile Trail
Race: Saturday July 3, 2010 7:00 a.m.
The course is typically hot on the way out,
along the Waianae side and there is usually a very nice in-your-face
breeze along the
return. The route is so simple that we will not even be marking the
course. Keep the ocean on your right side on the way out and keep the
ocean on your left side on your return.
As with all of our trail races, there is no pre-registration, just
up at least 30 minutes prior to the race start, pay the $10 entry
fee and you are all set.
We plan to have
a potluck after the race, so bring a dish to share, a
chair, and sunscreen.
The route goes from the end of the pavement past Dillingham
Airfield and Camp Erdman, to where the pavement begins again on the
Waianae coast side of Kaena Point. We will have an aid station set up
at the turnaround, however we encourage all runners to carry
adequate water (at least one 20 ounce bottle) during the run. It
is hot out there and there is not much shade. Don't forget a hat and
