H.U.R.T. 100 Mile

Aloha.

Got nothing to do on a Sunday? Go to the blog for the Hawaiian Ultra Running Team and check out the year's first 100 Mile race:

- H.U.R.T. Trail 100 Mile
- Course Map
- Elevation profile here

The race started at 6am Saturday (11am ET.) With a 36 hour time limit, all participants must finish no later than 6pm on Sunday local time. The first race updates were just posted.

The course, situated on the south end of Oahu, is reputed to put a HURTing on its participants with a gnarly 20 mile trail loop. Within its 5 loops, the course touts 25,000 feet of elevation gain on slippery and rooty terrain.

With a quick look at the entry list, one can see a slew of quality ultrarunners. Of special note: One of the entrants is Jody C. from Arizona, whom I had the honor of running (pacing) with, at her very first century run at the 2004 Mohican Trail 100. She's since turned into a seasoned 100 mile ultrarunner. Good luck Jody. Also racing is another blogger recently added to my sidebar, Krissy Moehl from Seattle.

Best wishes. It sounds like a tough run.
