LSW 1860 Tin Hau


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.
A little after 7 and we were off, up Dragon Terrace behind the temple to where we normally have a check at the hole in the fence.
While we were queueing single file, we were entertained by the nutter who was singing and dancing with his iPod plugged in, presumable at full volume 'cos he was oblivious of the crowd watching from the steps above.
We lost trail on the other side of the fence until a call came from up the CEDD hill and everyone took the nearest route up - rope, stormwater drain, green mesh retainer, onto the shiggy trail coming out at the bus depot on Lai Tak Tsuen Road.

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.
The Wimps went left along Sir Cecil's Ride and the Rambos past the radio mast and down the steps to Sir Cecil's Ride on the other side. By this stage the peloton was long gone and the pack spreading out.

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.
