Saturday Training: June 15, 2013 Peacock Flats

Aloha Athletes: This weekend features more than one opportunity to run great trails with great folks. 

On Saturday, Peacock Flats is on the menu.  Meet at the Dillingham Airfield at 5:45 a.m. for a 6:00 start.  Distance will be around 17 miles; go shorter or longer if you like.  Be prepared for some heat!

On Sunday, a handful of crazed fathers (and non-fathers) will be doing the Tantalus Father’s Day Fat Ass 12-Hour.  Here are the details:

  • Start/Finish at the Nature Center in Makiki (park in the lower lot or in the neighborhood before the Nature Center)
  • June 16, 2012 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. (or when we are all tired of running any more)
  • Easy 2-1/2 Mile Loop—you know it as up Hogsback, Crossover and back down Center trail.
  • Provide your own support – you should be able to safely stash it at the Nature Center

This is be open to any one—not just fathers. If you had a father, you’re
eligible! It can be a family event as anyone (even kids), can do a 2-1/2
mile loop at least once. Have your family bring a picnic lunch or we
can do a potluck/barbeque. Just keep it all low key.

Be sure to tell Dad that you love him!  Have a great weekend and Happy Running!

  1. There’s a beehive on Hogsback about 2/3 of the way up. It’s in a rock wall on the left where the trail is kind of narrow so you will get swarmed a little. I went through it twice today and no problem. Quickly and quietly. Just don’t let it surprise you on Sunday if they’re still there. You’ll see them in the air once the sun is up.
