The Hare Lost in Planet was undecided - I'm Not Yet 50 run or What a Load of Old Bollocks run. 26 people arrived at Braemar Hill to find out
Down Braemar Hill Road past Choi Sai Woo Park we went. Not everybody though. Some of the late arrivals didn't even make it that far.... Into the country park at the check at Wiltshire Towers. Left where it joins Sir Cecil's Ride then a long traverse, past the Mt. Parker trail turnoff and some odd blobs of flour going down it? Hopeless leading the charge at this stage having got all the checks right.
A checkback regrouped the front of the pack to go up to the radio station. A short hop along Sir Cecil's Drive then left into the Shiggy Gaga shiggy. This eponymous shiggy didn't do her any favours though 'cos she missed a sharp right turn, leading yours truly to the top of the hill before having to retrace back down again. Out of the wilderness onto Sir Cecil's Drive towards the radio mast and left onto the man's Ride heading in the direction of Home.
But it was not to be; a checkback took us up the riverbed. We were back near the radio mast again and proceeded round some telecom, green railings then down the shiggy for the final decent down the riverbed heading north back onto the SC's Ride again. Left along the trail for the last k or so On Home.
A great run 'bout 7½k and just over the hour mark.
So we got the I'm Not Yet 50 and not the Load of Old Bollocks
Some brief showering under the hose then on to the basho at the Braemar Hill Shopping Centre
