ANNOUNCEMENT: GROUP PHOTO FOR HEATHER H. @ RACE START
Prior to the race start (about 6:50), we will gather as many people as possible for a group photo. This photo is for our trail friend, Heather Howells, who has covered roughly 700 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail solo, with about 1900 miles to go. The photo will be included in a re-supply box which she will retrieve in Bend, OR. around the end of August. She will be thrilled knowing that her Hawaii family is sending her love and aloha as she undertakes this tremendous feat. Marian Y. is coordinating this thoughtful gift for Heather. Thank you for contributing to this!
Finisher awards & a BBQ Potluck after the race, so please bring a dish to share, a beach chair, swimsuit – whatever you need to relax and enjoy the post-race festivities! Hotdogs, burgers, condiments, drinks, and fruit will be provided.
**SPECIAL AWARD FOR THE MOST PATRIOTIC RUNNING OUTFIT, SO COME DRESSED IN YOUR BEST RED, WHITE, & BLUES!!!!**
Firecracker Race Fine Print:
Kaena Point is a fast, flat, out-and-back course that parallels the ocean along jeep trails and an old sugar cane rail line. The course runs from the end of the pavement at Mokuleia 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 with water, Gatorade, and light snacks set up at the turnaround, however, we will require 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 sun protection! There will be course marshals out on the course, follows their instructions or you will be disqualified from the race. They are there for your safety and to ensure course compliance so that we can continue to offer this race in the future!
Directions: From the North Shore, follow the signs to Waialua/Mokuleia. Follow Farrington Highway past Dillingham Airfield and Camp Erdman. At the end of the paved road, you will come to Kaena Point State Park dirt parking lot on your right. There will be parking attendants directing you where to park.
Please contact one of the race directors below with any questions or if interested in volunteering – we always welcome fun-loving volunteers to help make our race an enjoyable experience for all the racers!
Aloha and see you all soon,
Julie T & Jeff F
