LSW 1571 Sai Kung
Hares: Pissperfect & Gunpowder Plod
We haven’t had a Sai Kung village start since the Scrimgeour and Posford runs in the late 90’s. It still takes just over an hour to get there but people don’t get out as early as they did, so a 7:30 kick off it was. From Steamers it was across Fuk Man (phnarr phnarr) Road past the stadium on Wai Man Road and doubling back onto the waterfront then a bit/lot of milling around before going across Tai Mong Tsai Road and the check that took us towards the hills of Ma On Shan Country Park. Up through the last houses on Chuk Yeung Road and to the Wimps Rambos split that had the Rambos going right towards stage 3 of the Maclehose and the Wimps continuing left along Chuk Yeung Road on stage 4.
The Wimps followed the Maclehose trail till meeting up with rambos trail at the Nam Shan Village turn off.
The Rambos meanwhile continued round the hill with the trail dropping down to a checkback to go back up the hill to another check that was only solved when Sweaty stepped off the chalk marking saying ‘CB’. Up to an abandoned village Wong Chuk Yeung at the end of Chuk Yeung Road. According to Gunpowder, the concrete paths in the middle of nowhere are the remnants of a former farming community dating back to the 50's and 60's. When the British opened the gate to Commonwealth migrants a lot of the blokes moved to the UK to open Chinese restaurants etc.. and left their wives behind. There was no one left to work the farms so they were eventually abandoned with the paths being one of the few remaining signs of infrastructure.
The trail went back down to rejoin the Wimps on Maclehose stage 4 at the steps up to Ma On Shan. The check took us down through the long shiggy trail to Po Lo Che Road, down through Kak Han Tun village with one further shiggy down to Nam Shan Village and on home.
Showers in the stadium then On on at Steamers - $80 all in for the run and curry buffet with great big vats of Hoegarden for $28 – what more could you want.
