Before the run
The Run and Walk
Two of the walkers - Doggy Style with Clitoria
The runners set off to find the trail
Hare Fair Cop poses on his trail.
He set the trail in the sunshine the previous day while it was pouring with rain in the
northern suburbs of Athens and we were feeling sorry for him having to set the trail in the rain.
On On! We jog around the area near the coast where a lot of summer houses are located.
Running along the beach - the arrow shows the runners
The sunbathers seemed to be puzzled by our appearance.
The church built on the beach (Could it be that the priest likes sunbathing?)
At this point black rain clouds were rapidly approaching
Looking back across the aby at the bathing beach
The on-in is a run along the edge of the rocky coast
Rocky inlets provide secluded bathing spots
We run past the little marina filled with fishing and leasure boats
We continue the run along more of Loutsa's scenic and rugged coastline
GM Mad Dog calls the hare into the circle for the hare's traditional down-down

Heading to the Christina taverna (about 100m walk from the end of the run) and arriving just before it poured with rain.
The directions to the hash - for the record
Sunday 7TH September – 11am
FIRST HASH OF THE SEASON
Hare: Fair Cop’s special beginning of season BEACH hash J
Venue: LOUTSA – meet at FC’s pad and then convoy to beach start
On Inn: Christina Taverna
Those who are sun worshippers can stay at the beach all day.
From Attiki Odos, exit 16 (Rafina) . at the end of the motorway, turn right past Smart Park and Attica Zoo, head for Spata.. Turn left at the lights, over the hill and down the other side. Across the lights, pass AB on your right, then turn left at the next lights. Follow this road for several km, past the back gate of the airport, through the outskirts of Loutsa, and down to the coast.
... When you reach the sea, turn right at the lights.
Follow this road , past SPAR and another couple of kilometres. You are looking for the REVOIL petrol station on your left. From the garage, about 500m , a couple of bends, a few shops and then scrubland on your right. Turn sharp right at the bicycle shop (PODHLATA GT DYNO). FC’s house is the yellow one with the red roofed balconies.
Avoiding Attiki Odos?
Coming out of Athens on Mesogeion, immediately after passing under the Attiki Odos, take the right turn to Spata. Follow the signage all the way into Spata, , where there are signs for Artemis/Loutsa. From there, follow directions as above.
From the South
Get to the Airport, go past the turnings for arrivals and departures, and head for the exhibition centre and technical area. Keep going past the speed bumps, past the sign that says “No access beyond this point”, and drive confidently out through the checkpoint. It will open.
At the traffic lights, turn right, and you are on the main road into Loutsa. Stay on this road down to the sea and follow the directions above.
If you need to ask directions, ask for “Stasi 6, Vravronas”
It will take you at least 30 minutes from Mesogeion, 20 minutes from the Attiki Odos exit , or at least 15 from the Airport
