Hare - Thingy in my Bottom
A big pack of 32 runners gathered at the sitting out area opposite the Happy Valley tram terminus
That pretty much brought every one together again. Up a new (well new for me) trail up the side of Mt Cameron then down the slippery wooden steps to rejoin Blacks Link. Around Blacks Link to go down the steps to the Mt Nicholson Gap flats. The rain was getting heavier as we followed the shiggy trail looping round Mt Nicholson all the way back towards Wong Nai Chung Gap and out at the petrol station.
Still some flour left as we went down Wong Nai Chung Gap Road, then crossed the road where the pavement ran out. Apparently this was wrong as the markings continued down the left side of the road and into Bowen Road at the Tai Hang Rd roundabout. Different groups of runners took various options at the stage. Some carried on down Stubbs Rd while others headed right along Tai Hang and on home down Blue Pool.
The real trail went along Bowen then right up the steps and onto Tung Shan Terrace then down through Lingnan Primary School. Across Stubbs Rd and back into Happy Valley via a shortcut to Village Terrace.
Ivana was the only person to do this route. Looking at the map, Gobi Lo carried on to the bottom of Stubbs Rd then back into Happy Valley via the Sikh temple and Xin Hua News Agency giving her a 13.5km run compared with the mortals at only 10.5 km.
A great run with lashing of beer, showers at the sports centre and on on at the 'posh' dai pai dong (it is air conditioned).
Down Down's by Indy
The Hare ... Thingy in my Bottom - Great run despite the rain!
TIMB - The A run for all!! ..or many runs for many hashers!!
Octopussy - the longest runner ...did Rambo trail and up the mountain then on Black's Link decided to turn left and do the HK trail loop ..!! ..on no markings!!....
Yours truly Indy - Up mountain etc but on Black's link, did not turn left as Octo, and missed the turn right down the shiggy path (due to rain washout!)...instead kept running to end Black's Link, then back down Stubbs to rejoin the trail!
Rainer - did the same as Indy, but on Stubbs Rd decided that it was 'dangerous' running, so a taxi was the only answer!!!
Bobbledick - started 10 mins after runners off and back in 20 minutes after last R.....what was he doing?
Ivana Nuc*ck - only runner who ALMOST did all the correct R trail.... back home via Bowen Rd, Shui Fai Terrace ...then missed the construction steps to HV...
Lost In Space - Almost did all the correct W trail, finding the construction steps to HV, but missed the Bowen Rd/Shui Fai Terrace bit!!!!
