The Hare DOSH, was quick to point in the direction of the run start and gave comprehensive instructions for both runners and walkers. So off we trudged (never a truer word !) over an EXTREMELY rocky trail, that although so well marked you could not get lost, was, nevertheless, tough as …… Hmm I was wondering if this was a pre-cursor to one of those *Mudder* runs that I was thinking of joining ! (NOT !) It started by mostly going down but that meant, at some point, it would have to go up !
We skipped and twirled with excitement didn’t we…RUNNERS I meant as you all came back with bloodied limbs that invoked visions of twirling …. ??? Mostly falling and scratching but who am I to comment on that.

Dripping from the roof of the shelter hastened the end of the circle and, although the chips beckoned for some, others went for the yummy curry….
Hash Nosh next week folks
