HURT 100 Mile
This was my experience running the 2013 HURT 100 in Oahu Hawaii.
The event and course is spectacularly amazing in so many ways. It’s as equally a slice of hell and horribly endless at times. The jungle running is SO technical to run over. I loved and hated the event with equal passion, much like what one would expect in the sport of ultra running – yet this race takes it to a whole new level. Next time I plan on being more emotionally prepared for the difficulty of the course. Running loads of vertical would help too… I do not recommend this race for anyone who hasn’t run at least 5+ 100 mile races on moderate to difficult courses. HURT will destroy you, it’s guaranteed.
