The University of Hawai`i at Hilo women’s cross country team held their annual Vulcan 5K run on Saturday at the Naniloa Volcanoes Resort Golf Course Driving Range.

A total of 84 runners took part in the annual event. It featured participation from many of the East Hawai`i high schools, including Kamehameha-Hawai`i, Hilo, and Kea`au. Jaime Guerpo, head coach of the UH-Hilo cross country program, feels that having his squad and the local high schools together is beneficial for everyone.

“I think its good for them (the team) to showcase what the program is all about and to see that we can put up a good event,” said Guerpo. “It’s good for the kids to know that there is a women’s cross country program here and it’s still moving forward. It’s positive for us.”

The run served as a fundraiser for the program which, unlike the men’s team, has been able to stay afloat as a UH-Hilo sponsored program. Guerpo said that he is still trying to get the men’s prorgam back at the school.

“A lot of it is the budget,” Guerpo explained. “Hopefully in the future, we’ll get a men’s team back.”

Money raised from the fundraiser covers various expenses, such as travel. The Vulcans travel four times to Oahu to compete in various cross country meets. That does not include the PacWest Conference championship in November and, potentially, an NCAA regional.
