March 21st, 2020
The Mauna Kea Challenge is a Running race in Hilo, Hawaii consisting of a 50 Mile Trail Run (Ultra) and 50K Trail Run (Ultra).
The course: will be a tough climbing heavy out and back, runnable 100% dirt course on 10jeep roads, that will make you wonder how the jeep made it up! The 50 mile will feature approximently 7500 feet of elevation gain, with the primary gain being the first half to the course, and the 50 k will feature around 5000 feet of elevation gain with the primary gain also being the first half of the course. Starting at 6000 feet it would be easy to underestimate these numbers, but the exposed style of jeep trail, and the intensity of relentless climbing will have you working hard all day.hawaiimountainrunning.com View Course Map
