Hare - Hopeless
So Wednesday started out with a black rainstorm warning and lots of people got a lie in. Then by 10am it was down to an amber and then by evening it had stopped. A big pack turned out for the 1900th LSW run in Quarry Bay Park. Instructions were given. Flour, paper money, no shiggy, no stormwater drains or rivers. No split, the rambos is an optional extra loop that is not marked, but is obvious.
Out the QB Park mk. II to the first check near the funeral home. Left or right along King's Rd or Java Rd.? Not likely. Too congested. Head for the hills. Overpass and past MTR exit C and up steps to Pak Fuk Rd. We normally go straight up the long flight between Safety Town and Healthy Village Playground - WTF - yes it really is called that. In fairness, the HK Federation of Youth Groups building is nearby so maybe some under 5s got to name it after watching Bob the Builder. Well this time we went left up the elevated road then a check into some shiggy and up the steps to the end of Tin Hau Temple Rd. Up past Wiltshire Towers and onto Sir Cecil's Ride. Nice fast contour round Braemar Hill with the wimps taking the first turnoff left down to Mt Parker Rd.
The rambos carried on further round Sir Cecil's/Jogging Trail/Wilson Trail stage 2, call it what you want. "Are you ?" came the cry from some rambos who'd already forgotten the hares instructions that there were no markings on the extra loop. Traverse round to Mt Parker Rd and down left to the rejoin, then all right onto the Wilson stage 2/Quarry Bay Tree Walk towards Kornhill. Across the stormwater bridge onto the HK Country Park Trail and loop round to exit at Greig Rd. Left down the road to King's Rd and left on home. A good fast run 'bout 8k and 50 mins for the front On on to the Thai where the kitchen swung into production. Singha beers $25 each or 4 for $100. Cool.
