HURT 2016 Update
It is hard to believe but we are 2.5 months out from the 2016 HURT 100. While you folks are busy training, so too are the HURT organizers prepping for your epic adventure. A couple of housekeeping items are in order:
Drop date for a partial refund ($100.00) is fast approaching, the drop date with partial refund is 11/15/2015. We totally understand life circumstances and we have built it into the formula for future selection into the HURT 100 (via additional Kukui nuts). For those who have circumstance after the 11/15/15 date, we ask that you inform us if you won't be participating in HURT 2016. While we cannot make a refund we will once again add Kukui nuts for 2017. Failure to advise us that you won't participate / or failure to show at the start line will result in banishment for 3 years from entering the HURT 100. If you would like to withdraw from the 2016 HURT 100 please email Jeff at email@example.com
We still have dinner tickets available for the Monday evening gala. The link is https://ultrasignup.com/shopping.aspx?did=31744
Once again HURT 2016 is shaping up to be an incredible event. Keep training strong and be smart.
The HURT Trail 100-Mile Endurance Run (HURT 100) is a very difficult event designed for the adventurous and well-prepared ultrarunner. It is conducted on trails located in the mountains above the city of Honolulu (O‘ahu, Hawai‘i). The race is noted for its grueling terrain and for a uniquely scenic course, offering views of the O‘ahu coastline as well as the Pacific Ocean.
