Caine Road Garden
Hares: Dr. Evil, Hickey Slut, Verbal Diarrhoea, Melamine Girl
It's no what you expect was the phrase on the email. That left us all wondering where on earth are we gonna get sent - urban run, craggy high west, who knows?
With that said, we all set off up Kotewall Rd. in the direction of the University. The trail and the extra long on on took us round the contour path in the direction of queen Mary where we were to meet our first challenge. A fully locked barbed wire gate leading to a treacherous navigation of a concreted landslide. 'Well the gate was open when I reccied it' was the classic excuse from the hare. Needless to say we all scrambled over the gate slicing ourselves and severing several arteries on the barbed wire which the heartless hares had not thought about. It was really gory.
After leaving some members of the pack to bleed to death at the barbed wire gate we passed the landslide and the next check offered us two choices: carry on to Queen Mary (useful for those still reeling from the gate wounds) or up the steady inclined trail towards the Hong Kong trail and High West. The latter of which it was. (Sorry guys those with severed arteries could bleed to death slowly).
We then went around the countour path and made our way back up to the view point on the Hong Kong trail but didn't start ascending high west. The whole pack went back up to Harlech road and the morning trail where we found the rambos / wimps split.
Wimps headed back down the morning trail towards the A again and the rambos headed up over the Governor's path. At this point Hopeless was well out up front until he came to a an obvious T on the footpath and started to head back, where he met the next runners.
Insistent that the trail went off down a side road, he dragged four gullible runners including yours truly 500 m downhill until there was no more trail. We headed back up the steep path back to the T just to find that said runner had also missed the just as obvious arrow sending the trail on a diversionary route through the park and back down towards the peak tram. Needless to say someone spat their dummy out.
Round the back of the peak back to Harlech road, joining the wimps and down the morning path and on in.
Followed by some very suspiciously CHINESE looking and especially fatty 'THAI FOOD' and we song the bloody song .
