We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, bet you need to run some pounds off. Just a couple administrative things and we will let you get back to your training.

Are you having trouble getting motivated for H.U.R.T.? We have just what you need. We have produced a high quality Patagonia training shirt to keep you reminded on a daily basis. It would also make a great Xmas gift for your crew members. Click this link and place your order. Like all our HURT shirts we are just trying to recoup the cost of the shirt, screening and shipping to Hawaii. Hurry because we have only 100 shirts in stock.

The deadline to withdraw from the race with a partial refund has come and gone. However, if you would still like to opt out of the run we may be able to find a wait listed runner who still might be interested. Contact me directly if you would like to give up your spot.

Speaking of the runner list and wait list, if you want to see the most updated HIRT 100 entry list visit If you haven’t already uploaded a photo please do so as we might be able to use it during our live web updates during the event.

A no host post race dinner will be held at Mid Pacific Country Club ( same place as past 2 years) on January 17,2011 beginning at 5 p.m. We are attempting to keep the same menu and pricing as last year. We have limited slots (200) and once again we will be selling banquet tickets at the pre race brief on January 14, 2011. There will not be any walk up sales at the event as we need a hard head count by January 15,2011. In years past the banquet has turned into quite an event, you won’t want to miss it.
