2020 HURT 100 & Legacy 20
The HURT Trail 100-Mile Endurance Run (HURT 100) is an extremely difficult event designed for the most adventurous and extremely prepared ultrarunners, who possess superior technical trail running skills. The run is conducted on trails located on the hills above Honolulu (O‘ahu, Hawai‘i) on the Makiki Trail System. The race is noted for its grueling terrain with a uniquely scenic course, offering views of the O‘ahu coastline as well as the Pacific Ocean. Participants for the event are chosen via a weighted lottery selection process. HURT 100 entry is limited to 125 participants, and the lottery is currently scheduled for August 11.
The Legacy 20 is a one-time event limited to 20 runners. See description below.
- 100 miles over 5 loops (partial our and backs) in a semi-tropical rain forest.
- 99% single-track trails, 1% asphalt.
- Nearly 25,000 feet of elevation gain and loss over the 100 miles.
- Moderately packed soil surface generously interspersed with roots, rocks, puddles, and mud wallows.
- Very narrow trails passing through forest, along exposed ridges, and past vertical embankments.
- 20 stream crossings (four per loop).
- Wide range of temperature and humidity, with a very high probability of rain.

Legacy 20 of the HURT 100
The purpose of the Legacy 20 is to celebrate the 20th year of the HURT 100. This event is being held to honor those people who helped make the HURT 100 what it is today.
Local time: 4:10 PM
The Legacy 20 will start at 9:00 am, and consist of one 20 mile loop of the HURT 100 course.
Entrants might be previous finishers, long time participants, early contributors, volunteers par excellence, or people who have become synonymous with the HURT spirit of Ohana. If you feel you’re one of these people, we want to hear from you.
Entry into the event will be based upon an essay that you must write explaining why you should be selected for the Legacy 20. Information on how to submit your essay will be available when registration opens on May 1. No essays will be accepted prior to the May 1 opening of registration. Legacy 20 runners will be announced at the HURT 100 lottery on August 11th.
HURT understands all the contributions and sacrifices you have made, and we would like to recognize you for all you have given to the HURT 100. While the slots are few, please send a compelling argument on why you should be part of this epic event as we check off the calendar at 20 years of the HURT 100.
Legacy 20 runners will be on the course with runners during the 2020 HURT 100. It is a must do event for those who want to connect with runners you have run with in the past.
