Dogs are being kept in kennels inside the building - but by whom and why? Mad Dog poses with one.

Wonder what these brown weeds are?


Walking through a field of "What the f**k".

These little buggers stick to anything and everything , especially trainers and socks


Now we know where the idea for Velcro came from.

Just look at those strong little hooks.

Rim Job and Tender Vittles think a swim in the lake would be a good idea



Rim Job slides down the rock and jumps into the cold lake water


Tender Vittles closely follows. Note the flock of seagulls rising from the water due to the noise of the splash.


Tender Vittles dives in


Pussy Basher and the girls find an easier spot to enter the water. Pussy Basher strips off and dives in. The girls hesitate.


H'mm. Looks a bit murky. Lots of weed.


Rim Job has swum across to the platform followed by Tender Vittles who tries to encourage the girls to jump in.


Meanwhile Pussy Basher is enjoying the swim

The girls decide to enter the water from the platform.



Tender Vittles demonstrates how they should jump in.


Kiki goes in first


And then Evelyn follows


After the initial shock of the cold water they appear to enjoy the experience

Next AH3 [Athens Hash House Harriers] Hashing event:




DATE: 25 October 2020 (11:00 am)

RUN: 2121-ish

VENUE: Marathon Lake (Aghia Triada church)

HARE: Mad Dog

ON-INN: Picnic (bring your own food) or if you prefer, a Taverna in Stamata


There are 2 ways to get to the start: following the National Road northwards or following the main road [Kifisias Ave] coming North through Kifissia, Nea Erythrea, Drossia, Anoixi

From Anoixi, take the road to Marathon Lake (turn right 500m after the petrol station on the left)

In ALL CASES follow the road signs to Agios Stefanos.

Be careful: the exit on the National Road leading to Agios Stefanos is some kilometers AFTER the exit for Varibobi.

Then follow the signs to Marathon Lake.

Approx. 350 m after the point where the two roads meet (the one from Agios Stefanos - called Leoforos Marathonos (#83),
the other from Stamata - called Megalou Alexandrou) you will find a small sign pointing left towards the church of Agia Triada.
Follow this little dirt road (on the left) for about 1 km, until you reach the parking area just before the church.
The run will start from there.

For Sat Navvies:

38.157773, 23.887488 (Exact location of the church)

NOTE: Your GPS navigator may take you through dirt roads going through agricultural areas if you use the church location.

So use the following location (the turn-off to the church from the main road Leof. Marathonos leading to the Marathon dam)

38°09'02.6"N, 23°53'10.3"E ---OR---  38.150725, 23.886187     (Exact location of the turnoff to the church)

Then proceed down the dirt track for 1.1 km (4 mins) until you reach the church parking area.

NOTE: There is a small brown sign on the right on Leof. Marathonos pointing to the turn-off on the left (see photo).

Also, there are small flags hung between the trees enclosing the turn-off (not visible in the photo).

NOTE FOR PICNICKERS: Bring chairs (and table) if you can. There is a picnic table near the church but it may be taken.





1. MASKS IN CARS – If you are giving or getting a lift, you MUST wear your mask. Keeping car windows open may also help.

2. AT THE HASH – Hash Cash will be splashing on the sanitizer, and it will be available for hashers too.

There is a requirement to wear a mask outdoors, but only in the circle (groups of 9)

3. On-Sex – It has been a long time, but please refrain from grabbing, groping and snogging the other hashers. “Elbow bumps” will have to suffice.

4. Down-downs – The beer bitch and the RA will be thoroughly scrubbed, and the coolers sanitized. No re-use of mugs, (bring your own if you want).

5. Rubbish – dump your own rubbish in the bag. Don’t ask someone else to pick it up.

6. On-inn – We will probably be on tables of four.. If you prefer a plate of your own, that is fine. If you are happy to share in the normal hash style, please be extra aware of how food is shared.
