On July 2nd the H.U.R.T. Trail Series heads to end of the road and Kaena Point on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu.
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 2, 2011 @ 7:00 a.m.
No pre-registration, just show up at least 45 minutes prior to the race start (6.15am), pay the $10 entry fee and be ready to run.
There will be Awards, Theme Prizes, and a BBQ Potluck after the race, so bring a snack or dish to share, a beach chair, swimsuit, sunscreen – to relax and enjoy the post-race festivities! Hotdogs, burgers, condiments, drinks, and fruit will be provided.
Theme, what theme…!?! Yes indeed, this is an American holiday, so runners that show up in the spirit of this FUN holiday event will be eligible for prizes, as deemed by the Race Day Theme Judges…. So don’t be shy, have some fun… Prize categories may include but are not limited to: Most Patriotic Runner…. Brightest Running Shorts (or shoes)…. Silliest Running Hat….Weirdest Running Outfit, etc.
The course runs from the end of the pavement past Dillingham Airfield and Camp Erdman, to where the pavement begins again on the Waianae coast side at Yokohama Bay. 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 sunscreen.
Driving Instructions? From the North Shore, follow the signs to Mokuleia or Waialua. Follow Farrington Highway past Dillingham Airfield and Camp Erdman. After that, you will come to Kaena Point State Park on your right.
