Saturday Training November 3, 2012: HURT100 Training Starts, Paradise to Nuuanu and Back

Aloha Athletes,

With Peacock behind us, it is time to look ahead. For many, it is time to start thinking HURT 100. Of course not everyone that reads this site or comes here for running opportunities is entered into the HURT 100. 

Others out there might be focused on the Xterra Trail World Championships at Kualoa (a tough half marathon) in December and/or the Honolulu Marathon a week later. Feel free to join in on any of the upcoming training runs. You always have the option to run shorter or longer. Some of you may just want to get out and enjoy running on the trails. Jump on in.

So this Saturday we are meeting in the back of Manoa Valley just before the road narrows going up to the Paradise Park. We recommed parking out on this street. Please keep quite to not disturb the neighbors. 

Cheryl says start time is 6:00 a.m. Yes, that means you will need a light for the first 15 minutes or so. 

Going over to Nuuanu and back is around 11-1/2 to 12 miles roundtrip. Time wise, this run can take 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours.

For the next couple of months, HURT 100 runners will be running 20, 40 and longer miles (including night runs) as they prep for the January race. If you are not in the race, there are always opportunities to help at the aid stations, safety patrol, or even pace a runner. If you are interested, ask some of the other runners or click on one of the links on the right side of this page to volunteer. 

One last reminder,
