Informazioni H.U.R.T. 100 Mile Endurance Run

The Hawaiian Ultra Running Team’s Trail 100-Mile Endurance Run, referred to hereafter as the “HURT100”, is a very difficult event designed for the adventurous and well-prepared ultrarunner. It is conducted on trails within the jurisdiction of the State of Hawai‘i Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), Division of Forestry and Wildlife, Nā Ala Hele program. Nā Ala Hele has turned traces of pig trails through the rain forest into people-friendly, single-track paths. The event organizers are very grateful for the staff’s untiring year-round commitment to trail maintenance for all users, and help in preparing for this annual event.

The HURT 100 course consists almost exclusively of technical, single-track trail on surfaces that include roots,
rocks, and soil in a wide range of conditions, from sun-baked clay to mud of varying depth. Sudden hairpin turns
and steep inclines of up to approximately two miles in length are a common occurrence. Very few sections of the course can be run with a consistent stride for more than several hundred yards at a time.

Informazioni pratiche

Postazioni di Pronto Soccorso

There are three aid stations spaced from 5.2 to 7.4 miles apart: Hawai‘i Nature Center (hereafter “Nature Center”), Paradise Park, and Nu‘uanu. All aid stations will be stocked with bottled water, an electrolyte drink, and carbonated beverages. Hot and cold food will be available, with vegetarian options in each category. Food items will include the traditional fare that is provided at most 100-mile runs, as well as a local variation of the standard theme. Runners will be responsible for their own gels, energy bars, electrolyte supplements, medications (e.g., anti-inflammatory products), personal hygiene products (e.g., sunscreen, lip balm), and typical first-aid items (e.g., bandages, blister treatment). Those with strict dietary requirements or special medical conditions are advised to pack needed items in personal drop bags.

Medaglie

Awards (belt buckles) for all 100-mile finishers will be given immediately at the time of race completion. Five selected finishers will be awarded a custom-made / custom-fitted HURT belt to complement their new buckle. Recipients will be announced at the HURT banquet. Information on how to order a wooden finisher’s plaque will be provided at the finish line. 7 The first three finishers of each gender will receive event-specific trophies at a ceremony during the Post-Race Banquet. Runners unable to attend the banquet should note that awards will not be mailed and must be collected locally

Servizio di deposito

Runners may have personal supplies at any of the three aid stations. Each aid station will be visited five times, so attention to resource planning is important. Due to space limitations and to facilitate handling, the size of drop bags is limited, as detailed in Rules. Toward the end of the event, as aid stations close, race personnel will transfer drop bags from the peripheral aid stations (Paradise Park, Nu‘uanu) back to the Nature Center (Start / Finish). Bags of runners who dropped out may be transferred back earlier. Participants are responsible for gathering their drop bags following the event by 18:15 on Sunday, January 15. Any items not collected by then will be donated, recycled, or discarded.

Tempo massimo

36-hour time limit.

Parcheggio

Nature Center: Parking at the Nature Center (Start / Finish) and environs is limited; carpooling and arranging rides are recommended. Participants who wish to park at the Nature Center must do so along Makiki Heights Drive. The DLNR has advised race planners that only necessary traffic will be allowed to pass through the front gate after hours (typically sunset to sunrise), as the park needs to be secured. On race day, a parking attendant will direct drivers prior to the start. Paradise Park: The Paradise Park grounds, including the parking lot, are private property. A $5 parking fee (subject to change) applies per day. Free street parking is available around the end of Mānoa Road, 5 − 10 minutes by foot from the aid station. Parking at this aid station will not be allowed until after 09:00 on Saturday. Nu‘uanu: There is no parking lot at the Nu‘uanu Aid Station. Nu‘uanu Pali Drive is a narrow road adjacent to the aid station that offers extremely limited parking and is poorly lit at night. Visitors are asked to park at least 100 yards from the trailhead, so as not to interfere with access to the aid station.

Panoramica

The HURT 100 course consists of five identical 20-mile laps on trails connecting the Mānoa, Makiki, and
Nu‘uanu Valleys. A leg of this lap is defined as the connection between any two aid stations.

The route is marked with surveyor’s tape in three different colors (white, lime green, and orange), one for each of the three legs. On out and back sections of the course, runners will encounter ribbons in two different colors.
Blue tape indicates shortcuts and trails that are not part of the course. At night, glow sticks may be placed at
critical turns.

A brief description of the ordered sequence of trails that make up the HURT 100 course is given in the following
table; prominent natural or man-made landmarks are mentioned too.

At any time, the course may be altered at the race directorate’s discretion.
