Hares - Anal Vice & Ethiopian Hijacker
Recent weather and an A to B run always makes for a nervous pack grabbing for "B" details. Especially as it started to rain as the hares briefed the pack under the roof of the impressive Hong Kong Design Institute Building.
Pack of 26 runners (less the two hares) sent on their way with warnings of "Rock climbing... River beds... Get wet... Slippery (no Edge)..." and, basically, encouragement for the likes of F3M and Plod to do the Wimps. Also along with a few other notable names - citing "a race at the weekend Hopeless". Isn’t LSWH3 a race nowadays? I failed to understand this previous statement. Especially as we completed the Rambo section abseiling, running across rubbish strewn beaches and scrambling on granite along the rising tide waterfront, like an adventure race. I said to Frank The Plank "perfect training for your Action Asia race at the weekend?"
"To be sure Hopeless. But only if I get through this evening unscathed. If so I’ll tip my hat and a pint of Guinness to ya".
So Rambos arrive back on the road in the cemetery with Cheesy Flying Fux being pursued by CUTR. The Wimps were ahead as they came to a Check on the Wilson Trail below the forts. Tequila Fuckwit was found to be grumbling. ... "didn't fancy the Rambos.. way too many fast and weird people up my bum for my liking".
A night of profound statements then....
"Oh... hello Hopeless" from Ms. Lo.... less profound……
Onto the main road, and a predictable Check Back. Down the steps. Check. Choose right... looks like Lei Yue Mun via the shiggy trails...
Another profound statement from CUTR... " ". Yup... no calling...
He comes back from a trail off the Open Check..... Hopeless piles back that way for 120 metres and finds trail... runs back to call on the pack.... as any good hasher should, leading them onto the village.
Here Ms Lo winds up the motor for the podium finish, CUTR in pursuit with a new Chinese guy and Hopeless chasing for a finish on the waterfront at Lei Yue Mun.
Great trail, pack all close finishing together... as a hash should be. Well done the hares! The map
