Hares - Castrato & bag lady Swine Sucker
The end of the HK MTR line Chai Wan did not deter runners from turning in. Between 18:45-19:15, the pack has swelled to over 25! All these nutheads just for a bit of torture. Not even Willy Wanker could resist a break from his factory.
After waiting for one latecomer to another to sort out their kits, we finally set off at 19:18 and were predictably at the bottom of the cemetery steps in no time. After a few cursing here and there, we got to a check which spread everyone on the road.
A few brave ones persevered the additional uphill steps and we were soon skirting on this flat concrete elevated pathway thru the cemetery for a few kilometers.
Thankfully, the flat bit ended and we were again going up more steps - more cursing from Indy. The split finally emerged which sent the Rambos up Mt. Pottinger - interestingly enough - a wild boar did manifest in his path. (being the FRB).
With Old Sock taking the Wimps - then I had to take the Wimps. More flat and flat running for 3 k's, a little up, then down 500 steps to Mt. Collinson Road.
A very tricky checkback allowed the Rambos to catch us - down the road to yet another pointless CB up the cemetery (again)! Front Running Catch of the Day just carried on downhill and guessed the concrete path down to civilization.
Hopeless, however, did a different set of steel steps and decided to find his own way back to the park.
The rest of the pack rolled in different times. And as of press time, Bear Arse was nowhere to be found. The last we heard, he was just about getting to the R/W split. Oh my….
