An absolutely marvellous run (note: the purpose of this comment is solely so that Hopeless will now be embarrassed to disparage my forthcoming effort). Hopeless has already given us the route details, we were off at high speed along the waterfront, but slowing down for the crowds, only to have our pictures taken as we passed between dozens of cameras and people having their photos snapped with the harbour and HK island in the background.
The run took a bridge over Salisbury road and towards a large square resembling a Malaysian or Singaporean food centre. Britney and I searched the three far corners in detail, only the find the run had turned up a walkway and never actually went into the square at all. Next back over Salisbury road and all around the outside of Hung Hom station. No throngs around there to slow us down. But turning back across the harbour tunnel toll plaza, we were into the thick of commuters returning home. Across the north end of TST, mainly on paths but some unavoidable roads until Kowloon Park. Straight through with no diversions, as for the last umpteen years, and back to the clock tower via Canton Road. The braver members of the hash battling with taxis and Lamborghinis for road space, the pavement being almost impassable.
Generally a very well marked run, thanks to the decency of the FRBs filling in the gaps most likely ... except whoever marked the run into a lift ... which was extremely slow ... and after an eternity ... opened into a detour, not even on trail.
A few drinks and Indy called a Circle to try and stop our virile male members from ogling the gorgeous Harbour Runners contorting fit their bodies alongside us ... or was it our nubile harriettes gorging on the male Harbour Runner eye candy ...
The Hare - for being the hare
Back to Indy:
Thingy in Your Bottom's Downdown:
We then trundled off to the Marco Polo Hotel Oktoberfest party, $120 for the first beer and $150 ish for food. Lots of fun but the venue isn't what it used to be ... when hashers Polka'd around the dance floor together (except the drunk ones who fell over and tripped up their partner too). For next year why don't we try the Victoria Park version? Oh dear... did I just volunteer myself?
Last night's hare's trail around Tsim Sha Tsui.
Out along "Avenue of the Stars" on the waterfront, diversion into TST East before heading to The Coliseum and around it. Back into Hung Hom station and across towards Austin Road and a CB to cut behind Gun Club Barracks and then around KCC back to Austin Road.
Over Nathan Road and into Kowloon Park, out the other side, right turn for the sprint for home back to the clocktower via the hordes of mainland tourists on Cameron Road.
20 attended with about 14 onto the Oktoberfest.
