Hares: Backdraft (& Hopeless)
Big ole pack of 42 runners - well there were some proper runners, some not so proper runners, visitors returnees and assorted riff-raff.
This check worked because most of the front went the 'normal route' left up Yee King Street. The actual trail went right along Lai Tak Tsuen to Tai Hang Road and towards Jardines Lookout.
On to Mt. Butler Rd. and past the quarry up towards the radio masts.
Traverse round like the previous week to come out at Wiltshire Towers then along Braemar Hill Rd past Choi Sai Woo Park to the rejoin and the steps down to Tin Hau Temple Rd and on home. Garmin readings of about 7 to 9 km and most in by the hour and a half mark.
A delegation got into the 'no paddling' ponds but it was okay 'cos no one paddled, just lay in the water and drank beer. It'll be a sad day when they get a sign banning that too. We leisurely drifted off the to Thai basho while the hare and a few others waited for the last of the pack to arrive and some cramps and injuries to subside.
