It's That Time Again, Mauna Kea 200!

There are only a few truly organized off-road races over here and they're generally run in a Hare and Hound format.

Labor Day has the Hardcore on Kauai:

Around Thanksgiving there's the Turkey Trot on Oahu:

And here we have the Mauna Kea 200 on Memorial Day



This year’s event will be both Saturday and Sunday for ’street legal’ bikes. Unlicensed bikes and ATVs will run just Sunday. Saturday will be 100-120 miles in Kulani forest. Sunday will be around the mountain. Long day Saturday, quick ride on Sunday. The start Saturday will be at the parking area at the Upper Waiakea ATV/Dirt Bike Park on Stainback Highway, finish will be along Saddle Road, same place as last year. Sunday will start and finish at Mauna Kea State Park.

So who's in? I'm probably going to shoot video and fotos since I'm not going to be 100% by then. Last year folks came from the East and the West coasts.
