Run 1809

Easter Bunnies

Run 1809

16/04/17

 

This weeks run was all about Easter treats and chocolate – lots of chocolate.

A big pack of rabbit eared hasher gathered for the annual bunny run, at the end of Moola road. We even had a cute group of bunny eared dogs who posed, in style, for the Hash Flash.

The run was a typical Puki M. hill-a-thon with almost no flat bits, except the bit where an excitable horse decided to jump it’s fence and join in.

The after run chocfest was tucked in by all, thanks Thumper for the delicious profiteroles, Light My Fire for her lovely savoury goodies and Leapfrog for the now traditional choc eggs filled with Baileys for Down Downs.

We congratulated Nameless on his recent wedding in New Zealand and look forward to a full report of the event from Pink Bits on her return next week.

Leapfrog reminded everyone to wear Red for the Ruby Red Dress Run on Sunday the 30th of April.

A $5.00 donation for the run and nosh will be going to the Heart Foundation. Mini hashers are $2.00. BYO eating irons

Hare: Passiona

 

This time last year a big group of us spent a wonderful week hashing around the Cocos Keeling Islands. Leapfrogs photo albums (yes real printed pictures), were passed around to share the delights of jungle and beach runs in the tropics.

In stark contrast, this weeks run was pure Hills Bush, set by Passiona from Grevillea Mycumbene.

Leapfrog stood in as acting GM as both GM and Vice were off holidaying. She welcomed a big pack of younger runners and a surprise visit from Meaty Bites, who last ran with us about 15 years ago.

The runners and walkers started off together but soon diverged along the relatively flat bush tracks.  The hare must have done something right as both packs came back almost together to share after run snacks from Thumper and Leapfrog.

Dosh performed the Monks duties as GPS was also absent (lost perhaps?), she even fined herself for wearing, what must be the brightest fluoro orange and pink running shoes on the planet!

Next week is the Easter Bunny run so remember to bring along your bunny ears and tails.

The last run of the month (April 30th) is a special “Red dress Run” to celebrate Leapfrog and Passiona’s Ruby wedding anniversary, so dust off your best red dress, we expect to see everyone dazzling in red.

 

On On

A run of the year

Hares: Sheep Shunter and Light my Fire

 

Everyone remembered the 4:00pm start time and a large pack headed off in all directions to start what can only be described as the “Steepest run of the year”

We all enjoyed the glorious unseasonal river rapids from the Bells Bridge and then it was a hard slog up and up and up.

Runners and walkers were rewarded with beautiful views from the top of the hill side with the added interest of  two long goods trains snaking their way down the valley.

A big pack of mini hashers did well not to fall over on the stony steep tracks, unfortunately Free Beer was not so lucky, coming to grief in full view of the much needed drink stop The circle had many more lame ducks with knee injuries, joining her in the circle.

We all enjoyed nibbles, fruit and drinks on another splendid afternoon of hashing.

Leapfrog reminded everyone to look out for Red Dresses in the Op Shops, for the special Ruby Red Dress Run on the 30/4/17.
