An epic hash. Think of a standard Saturday trail and add 5k. Think of standard hills and double them. Think of a standard beer stop and double it.
Why? Sometimes the stars align and an idea just has to be seen through.
- Hashers are fit after the Sola.
- Weather will be good.
- We have lots of daylight.
- The hare is temporarily without wife and children, and has found some interesting places.
A to B(eer) trail, exploring places rarely sullied by hashers. B is a long way from A so bring a zone 110 ticket or money to buy one. Bag drop at the restaurant.
Most of the trail will be doable by a buggy and driver in good condition, with workarounds for some difficult bits. Walkers will have maps with suggested short cuts. Runners will also be able to short cut if they don't feel able to complete true trail.
Hare is Saddam, author of the September 2013 Saturday trail, 666, SNH 2013 Saturday trail and other evil deeds.
If you have not hashed before, a Saturday true trail is typically 8-10km, and there are all speeds in the group, including walkers who normally do a shorter route. If you are a slow runner, you will do something close to true trail distance, as there are places where the trail disappears, and the front runners have to find it - while they are looking, the rest of us have a chance to catch up. If you are a quick runner you will go further, probably around 10k.The hare (person who lays the trail) is really aiming for everyone to get to the end at about the same time in order to take part in the more social side of the run.
There will be a charge of CHF5 to cover beer and snacks If you would like to know more about Zürich Hash House Harriers, check out also www.zh3.ch If you would like regular newsletter updates, please send a blank mail to [masked] with one of the following titles:- 'RUNS', for news of r*ns and social events 'NEWS', for news of everything else 'BOTH', if you want both
