Mountain Goat gives the low-down on the trail




The Run and Walk


The walkers set off in a different direction from the runners


Mountain Goat kicks a check to show the way in case a runner turns up late



MG points out a check - and it seems a good opportunity for a photo with Fair Cop


Rear Entry returns from checking


Mad Dog and Rear Entry on trail


Into the shiggy







Oops! Who slipped and fell in the brush


For some reason this tree in the forest gets decorated and re-decorated for Christmas. Nice idea!


The hare stops to tighten his laces


We come across an old tortoise


Rear Entry poses with it


On On!

The Taverna

The Aris Taverna in Varibobi

Lots of meat and good value at 15 euros each

The Pork Shank (Kotsi Hirinou) and sausage (Loukaniko) were particularly delicious

Complimentary dessert at the end of the meal...






The directions to the hash - for the record

Hare: Mountain Goat

Venue: Varibobi

From wherever you come:

Follow the road signs to Varibobi, cross the Varibobi Bridge (Flyover) the National Road to Lamia, continue on this windy road, that after a while becomes a long straight road going slightly uphill, at the junction with the road coming from Tatoi Airport turn right [watch the STOP sign!] do not turn left towards Varibobi village - and continue straight.

At the end of this road you will be forced to turn left (because straight on leads to the closed gate to the ex- King’s residence).

Follow this road for about 1 km, until you will see the usual parking spot on your right. This will be our meeting place.

If you pass the group of taverns (Thea, Panorama and Aghios Mercourios on your right hand side of the road, where the Fire Squad normally is stationed on the left side, this will mean that you have gone too far. Turn around and drive back for some meters and then turn left (as you will be coming now down the hill) into the parking lot.

The run will start here.
