§  Marking one section of our 100km trail

If you can help please either call me on 08 9262 8205 or email

How to not stuff things up

Just a note to remind Hashers that run details can and (sometimes) do change.  So please do check the website on Sunday to be sure you will be where everyone else will be, so we can all be there together.

Also, if you happen to notice an error, such as a wrong map, or the nominated street being slightly adjacent to the actual street, do please let me know, rather than turn up at the run and mention how wrong it was (which is fine, except that won’t help others find the right spot). I would suggest that the Hare for each week double-check the details on the website once they are up.

My email and phone number are in the contact section if anyone needs to check/amend run details. Everyone should also have a green sheet with everyone else’s contact details on it. Sometimes, the sheet is not green, but more often it is.

Wunderbar, and On On,
El Keeno

Oxfam Trailwalker Volunteering

Hi Hashers, here is so info sent to us by Oxfam Trailwalk:


Walk in the bush and Challenge Poverty at the same time!


We are looking for volunteers to help us mark and sweep sections of the

Oxfam Trailwalker Perth trail in the Perth Hills from

Thursday 8 October to Sunday 11 October.


Can you help? Click here to register as a volunteer.


Oxfam Trailwalker is one of the toughest team challenges in the world. Oxfam Trailwalker Perth is on 9 – 11 October

and will see over 400 teams of four walk (or run) 100km in under 48 hours or 50km in under 24 hours through the beautiful Perth Hills.

Oxfam Trailwalker is a huge logistical exercise, and we couldn’t do it without the support of our amazing volunteers – people just like you.

Volunteering at Oxfam Trailwalker is a fantastic way to meet people, bond with colleagues and friends, share in the excitement of

Oxfam’s biggest fundraising event and most importantly, make a difference to the lives of people living in poverty.


We need people to help us mark and sweep the trail in sections ranging from 7km – 18km. Shifts are approximately 4 – 5 hours in

duration and we have shifts available around the clock from Thursday 8 October afternoon to Sunday 11 October morning.

Volunteers walk the trail in groups of four, so this is a great opportunity to volunteer with friends, family and club members, or to meet new people.


To find out more, check out the Trail Marker and Sweep Team volunteer roles and click here for information on what to expect on Oxfam Trailwalker weekend.

For more information about the trail, click here.


Register now to volunteer! We hope you’ll be able to join our amazing team of volunteers and help support

Oxfam in making a difference to people living in poverty around the world.

Hacker away

Just a quick note: I am away for about a week…so hopefully should be back before we run out of run info on the web.

Any enquiries for run info to Dripper.

Mount Helena (and info on Ride the Railz)

Hares: Dripper/Pink Bits
On On: Pioneer Park, Mt Helena

It was an amazing run and both hares ( Pink Bits and Dripper ) set magnificent run/walk In fact it was probably the bestest run ever……really ! There was a lot of bushy bits and wildflowers and walkers and runners crossed paths. The GM turned up on a wonderous steed (Binky)……All red mane flashing and the horse too ! (Difficult to tell the two apart..they do say you start to look like your pets) However, one of the hares forgot that GM would be on horseback and there were teeny weeny gates to get through so horse and rider had to do “alternative” route and ended up losing track of time. (No sense of time that pony) Usual circle with down downs and other nonesense…then about 12 of us descended on the somewhat quiet and less than busy pub but we all had a nice meal and a few laughs !

Also, we received a flyer for “Ride the Railz”: a bike ride from Parky Pub to Swan View on October 2. Keen walkers/runners/bikers/volunteers might want to respond directly to Anabelle. (It mentions ages 12-20, but not sure if that means only that age group can participate, or just if it is aimed at them and anyone can join in…I think the latter)

Here is the info:

I am writing to you to see if your group would be interested in coming along to Seen and Heard’s ‘Ride the Rails’ or if some of your members would be interested in volunteering at the event. This Community bike ride will be held along the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail, starting in Parkerville and finishing at the Railways Reserves Heritage Trails Swan View Station on Thursday, 2 October, during the October School Holidays, from 11.00 am until 2.00 pm. Walkers or cyclists are welcome.  This is a free event which will include a free BBQ, music and some fun activities for all to enjoy.

The Seen and Heard Program aims to enhance the well-being of all young people aged 12 – 20 years who reside within the Shire of Mundaring through utilising the principles of community development.  We run free or low cost school holiday activities, dance parties, musical festivals and various other events for young people.

I have attached the event poster for your information, please feel free to pass this on to any other walking lovers you think maybe interested in the event.

If you would like more information you are welcome to contact me on Monday-Tuesday from 9-5 at the office on 9255 2570.

It was a nice red brassiere, the idea being if one fall’s over, one’s fall is cushion by the cushions, so to speak.

Ah…what else. We have soup, food and dessert. A few drinks were had, but we were utterly well behaved. There was some talk of blowing off, but I cast that from my mind.
