BEFORE THE RUN
The air is chilly but we are happy to have a sunny day after the rain.
Hare Mad Dog describes his trail
OK, the description is deliberatly inaccurate as is the hashers tradition
AND OFF THEY GO...
"That way" sent the hashers off to a false trail. A good start!
Here Harold and Alex return to the parking area to search for true trail
So do Fair Cop followed by Jacket Off and Codpiece and his dog Alice
Finally on trail
Some puddles left over from the rain
Someone had been removing some of the trail marks and covering the checks with stones.
Our hashers found the trail despite this.
Another check covered with stones.
The trail ascends
Lots of scenic woodland
Mad Dog poses by a check
The runners pause for a group photo at a view point
Fair Cop takes the camera for this one
Jacket Off checks uphill
Mountain Goat correctly checks downhill
Mountain Goat gets it wrong this time
Fair Cop is pleased with himself after jumping the barrier
