The HURT 100 is a pre-registration event with a lottery. There are no charges incurred to the runner to enter the lottery.
Annually the HURT 100 receives in excess of 500 plus applicants for the 136 slots. Selection of the entrants is via a weighted lottery based upon the questions posed on UltraSignup.
Please read the Book of HURT to determine if this event is for you.
HURT Entry and Lottery Changes
As interest in the HURT100 continues to grow year over year, we have decided to make some changes to the entry requirements and lottery process.
We have a new requirement for a qualifying event. All entrants must complete a 50 mile or longer event within the two years prior to registration. There are three opportunities in Hawaii to achieve the 50-mile minimum requirement for the HURT 2021 application:
April 18 – Mauna Kea Challenge 50 Mile
June 6 – Under the Moon 100K
July 18 – Hawaii Kai Ultra Run
There will be three separate lottery categories, with three separate lotteries.
* HURT Veterans
* Wait Listed / Never HURTers
* Everyone Else
We feel these categories continue to give our long-term veterans an opportunity to run, while making sure those who are perennially stuck on the Wait List get an increased opportunity.
Please read the full description of the new requirements here.
HURT Trail Work Requirement
HURT will require eight (8) hours of volunteer trail work service from each participant.
Local time: 9:38 AM
Trail work service must be performed between September 1 of the year prior and November 15 of the year preceding the event, a 14-month window. Those not submitting an approved trail work form by the deadline will be removed from the event and a partial refund given, as described in the Book of HURT.
For the 2021 HURT100 event, the service window will be from 9/1/19-11/15/20.
Guidelines for completing the trail work are listed on the HURT 100 website, available here.
