 Hotdogs, burgers, condiments, drinks, and some fruit will be provided. We

This run is dedicated to Matt Leathers,
Navy SEAL and HURT runner, was lost at sea off Kaena Point while participating
in open water swim training this past February. Matt ran in the 2012 and 2013
editions of the HURT 100 as well as numerous of the HURT trail series run. It
was not uncommon for one to be running the Tantalus trails in the early morning
and to suddenly encounter him stealthily running out there as well. As this is
H.U.R.T.'s Independence Weekend event and due to its location, please also
think of not only Matt but also all of the service members that we have had the
distinct honor to have shared dirt and mud with.

See you there!
