Buddha's Birthday Public Holiday run
It was a pleasant day with low UV, mild cloud cover and moments of sunshine. Perfect conditions for a daytime hash. The Anaemic LSWs were so excited to run in the sun. They arrived in eager anticipation of the run having high expectations from the last minute stand in hare Lost in Space and co-hare Indy.
A good crowd of around 30 were gathered at Braemer Hill with plenty of cute babies of hashers for people to coo and admire, also some visitors from Kowloon Hash, Canada and the U.K. The only people missing at the start were the hares.. with just a note stating that the hares may be late.. 4 pm came and the hares had not arrived but at 4:05 they straggled in writing down names putting hash markings for the briefing. By 4:15 we were off!
The trail turned right towards Choi Sai Woo, through the park and onto the familiar steps up to Braemar Hill. These familiar steps usually a mild cardio workout became a hard struggle as I regretted having eaten the delicious Pakistani curry so soon before running.. at the top we ran onto Sir Cecil's ride and around the circuit. Just as I was feeling really unwell as I was still attempting to run with undigested curry close to being regurgitated the trail went into the first rambos wimps split.
This was the shiggy trail that the hare said the rambos would face. He said it was a fun shiggy I don't know what that means.. but I do remember there being lots of long grass which caught out Anal Invitation, Southside Hash Toy and Dogsh&t as they made a wrong turn. Then there was some low hanging bamboo forest which was tough to navigate if over a certain height that even SST behind me was caught in it. However at one point we reached a beautiful view of the harbour and Kowloon and I kindly let AI, SSHT and WCK run past me so I could savour the view and take it easy. I thought of Kannot Finish and Freerider and hoped that they had brought their phones and would take photos! Afterwards we headed down and onto a streambed. I was with Tight Lips who was hesitant about whether to do the riverbed or the wimps trail.. Being a trooper she came onto the rambos. With the perfect weather our shoes gripped well on the dry rock and we could glide up the stream. Somebody even spotted AFWD hauling his son up the stream. I was surprised to see a mini waterfall and thought this maybe virgin trail for me.. but later others said that we had done this many times but at night but maybe at night we are just too busy running crazily to finish and not enjoying the moment.
At the end of the stream I found Camel driver jumping out of the bush as she had gone the wrong way as the On On pointed towards the left.. TL and CD did the check and then SST caught up and spotted the Trail on the right.. and we ran alongside the small streams.
Then we ended up on concrete trail where I saw AFWD with his baby, Cyclops and Wheelbarrow. I ran past them and onto another mountainous trail which was before the checkback.. after coming down and back onto the path I was surprised to see the three of them again.. how could they be so fast! Inside information?
Finally we we turned onto a contour trail which had great views of HK Island but minimal markings.. maybe the hares ran out of time or chalk?.. but we logically followed the trail to the end and came back to the stairs leading to A.
At A we were welcomed with not enough beers or softies... groan.. however it was a fantastic trail enjoyed by all. With many options and interesting variety of terrains and amazing views! Well done to the hares!
