LSW 1786 Cinco de Mayo run
Hares - Lost in Space, The Virgin Mary
A fractious pack of on time arrivals started haranguing the hares as to why we didn't start at the other Quarry Bay Park that we had to walk past from the MTR (er... covered stands?), or alternatively why the start should have been from Taikoo MTR as it was much closer. With that cleared up we were told to run back to the other Quarry Bay Park whence we came and find the first markings. Collective groan. However we had a huge advantage over the late arrivals who missed the park discussion so didn't know where to run back to to find the first flour. They did 3kms before even finding it LOL.
From thereon is was a good, fairly straight forward, mostly runners run. Over the tram lines then up that long flight of stairs up Braemar Hill. Kin says that Pak Fuk was in there somewhere, then into the country park at Willshire Towers. Up to Morning Walker Garden - over Mount Butler - Quarry Gap - down Mount Parker Road. We followed a few of Dr. Evil's markings down to the country park management office then back up onto the Hong Pak Country Trail before resuming our descent down Mt. Parker Rd. We took the next trail off the road (Wilson Trail/Quarry Bay Tree Walk?) round to Kornhole and down Greig Road on home. A good, well marked run which kept most of the pack quite well together, and it was only after 3 or 4 beers that the late arrivals drifted on in. The taco truck arrived with mountains of food which was then all washed down with Corona.
