Saturday Training: November 8, 2014 – Tantalus

Aloha Athletes: Work gang

First, I would like to say a big mahalo to those volunteers that worked hard last Sunday with Na Ala Hele to get the trail system into fantastic shape!  I was not there, but I know these folks worked very hard: Mike Cole, Augusto Decastro, Steve Clemons, Iris Oshiro, Sandi Kanemori, Jim Masterson, Jeff Fong, and Freddy Halmes. We are hoping for additional opportunities prior to race day in January. We get great pleasure and benefit from the use of these trails, and need to give back when we are able.

Speaking of giving back, HURT 100 is about 10 weeks away.  If you have not yet volunteered to help, there are three aid station looking for volunteers to work during the race.  To volunteer at the Nature Center, contact PJ.  To volunteer at Paradise Park, contact Marian or sign up here.  To volunteer at Nuuanu, contact Freddy or sign up at Runners HI. To volunteer for trail marking or safety patrol, contact Jeff.

This Saturday's training will be on Tantalus trails (get used to it). The plan is to do reverse Triple Trek loops beginning at the Nature Center at 6:00 a.m. Parking is recommended below the lot, as it may be a bit more secure; as always do not leave valuables in your vehicle.  Please be mindful of the residents nearby and keep voices and noises to a minimum. The group will do 2.5 to 3 loops and will use vehicles for resupply in between loops.  Bring your own water and nutrition. 

Enjoy your weekend and happy trails!
