Remember the deadline to sign up (www.ultrasignup.com) for the race is April 9, 11:59p. 33 slots remain!
Vi's Top of Tantalus run will start and finish at the Pu'u Ualakaa Park, about two miles up Tantalus Mountain on Round Top Drive. This race is conducted in memory of our dear HURT friend, Vi Medusky-Jones, who passed away from ALS three years ago.
According to our permit from the Division of State Parks, we are required to leave parking spaces open to other park users. Please park out on Round Top Drive, outside the entrance to the park, making sure your car is completely off the roadway. Carpooling to the race is encouraged. Otherwise, if you can get 4-5 people into your car at the gate, we'll let you through to park inside.
The race will start at the covered lookout, past the bathrooms, and finish in the upper parking lot. The route will be marked with our ribbons, which will be explained race morning when you check in. There will be two aid stations at the two road crossings, and light refreshments at the finish. The course is rugged and hot, and we urge you to carry a water bottle…our aid stations are only to supplement your water needs. This is a State Park, so alcohol is not permitted. If you have to drop out, it is mandatory for you to inform one of the race directors at the start-finish, before the race is over.
We all look forward to seeing you, and spending another raucous morning on the trails!
