Saturday Training – October 18, 2014: Reverse Trek Loop – UPDATED 10/17

Aloha Athletes:

The Saturday training run will be a ROAD loop of Tantalus, starting from the Nature Center at 5:30 a.m.

This is from Department of Land and Natural Resources:




>> All state parks will be closed Saturday, until further notice. There will be no Friday night camping in park campgrounds. All state forest areas, hiking trails and public hunting areas will be closed Saturday until further notice.

Stay safe this weekend!


Congratulations to all that competed in one or more of the epic events last weekend.  I am sure that some are still feeling the impact of hard efforts and may want to do a mellow run, and there are some hard-chargers that will want to put the pedal to the metal again this weekend.

For the first category, there will be a group run starting at 6:00 a.m. at the Makiki Nature Center for a reverse Trek Loop.  You can ease into your HURT 100 training by doing this relaxed 10-mile course, or leap in head-first by going for a second repeat and higher mileage.  Plan to carry fluids and nutrition sufficient for a minimum of 2-3 hours on the trail per loop. 

For the latter category, there is also the Gunstock 5K and Half Marathon is starting at 7:00 a.m. at Kualoa Ranch. (I believe the registration is closed for this event now.)

Of course, if the tropical storm/hurricane becomes a threat for Saturday, and plans need to be changed, I will post here on Friday early evening.

Have a great weekend!
