The hares - Gary Glitter & Quiche Lorraine
Always get a big turnout for this start (43 today), especially new runners. They never come back, but it's a start.
Some of us went left 'cos some others were shouting 'Are you?' while standing on the flour and On On markings that pointed right. We turned round when we hit the On Home going down to Shu Fai Terrace. That would have made the second shortest LSW run ever. I think the honours still go to Squirrel Nuts and Slippery for a run from Ap Lei Chau that was meant to go across the bridge round Aberdeen Reservoir and back. At the first check at the start of the bridge someone saw markings on the other side of the road and we were back on in within 15mins. Bang bang.
So back it was then on behind Bowen Rd Park and up the river bed. I don't think I have ever done this before, probably because it is not really a thing. Then nearer the top there was even less of a thing which was apparently the Super Rambos. Apparently, because not many people knew this and went on to the check that was next to it on the steep Wanchai Gap path. Nobody did the check - we just T'd the downward route and went up Wanchai Gap, did a bit of false checking along Hollandse Laan then up to Stubbs Road. Gobi Lo & Hopeless were coming up Stubbs Rd from SRs to the left waxing poetic about the enchanting overhead growth and soft, wet, moss-covered rock underfoot.
Black's Link had already been T'd so it was on home along Middle Gap Rd, HK Trail IV, Black's Link, Wong Nai Chung Gap Rd, Bowen Rd, down to Shu Fai Terrace and on in over Kennedy Rd. 'Bout 10k & 73mins. Good run.
