Where are we going to run this weekend?

A good question. Spoiled for choice aren't we? How can we scale the sheer limestone cast to the eastern side of the valley while also taking in the majestic 500 meter mountains to the west? Or maybe we should just head for the glacier tipped peaks to the north. Either way the hare will be setting off tomorrow in quest of new trails to run, new peaks to conquer and all being well you can experience the results of his quest on Saturday.
Directions to the resort as below and if you haven't booked but decide at the last minute you want to, call either Only a Yolk (089 6542351) or Eggperson (081 9691277) before Saturday, or better still just turn up on Friday and demand accommodation.
If by any chance you are not able to join us this weekend but fancy a run, Hatyai H3 will be running on Sunday afternoon, when Sex Star will lay a run from the football field at Tungnai (from the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4.6k and turn left for 8k, then right for 4.5k. Run site on the left).
On boldly on!

Strange times on Punnakan Rd.

Yesterday's run: about 8km total, including false trails; maximum elevation just 167m, total ascent around 250m. First in was Safe Sex in, I dunno, about 1:15? Bringing up the rear was Wet Spot, in well before dark despite arriving entirely on his own at the near-impossible last check and finding it still unbroken.

Apparently there was an anonymous complaint about "too much running". Given the nature of this event (a hash, er, run), we would have thought that this would be like saying there was "too much beer" in the beer truck or "too many bubbles" in your tub at the Pink Lady. But the hare in fact had considered that possibility, which was one reason for the number and difficulty of the checks.

The other reason of course was to confuse and lose Mongolian Sex Rat. This proved so successful that he didn't even show up. A moral victory, if not quite as satisfying as seeing him slink in from the wrong direction half an hour after everyone else.

The previous change of location for the Beer truck

As has been pointed out, the SH3 Web site still suggests that visitors to Songkhla Hash should go to the Parlang in Songkhla to find the beer truck on Saturday afternoons, but in case any one checks here for updated information, the beer truck now starts its journey to the run site at the Hot Bread Shop in Sisuda Road, 1 hour before the start of the run (3:30 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. between October and February). Visitors are very welcome to join our runs and a call to 081 9691277 for information in English or 089 6542351 for information in Thai will always get details of either the SH3 run on Saturday or the HH3 run on Sunday.

Nov. 2012 UPDATE: The beer truck now leaves from Bai Meang Restaurant on Sadao Rd. (across from the Governor's Residence) at the times shown above. As always, all are welcome!

Next week's outstation run: the map

Here is a map to next week's outstation run at Wang Wen Resort. OK so it's not to scale and it would probably help to have a multilingual navigator, but it should get you there. Hard copies will be available at this weekend's runs, but the pdf will be e mailed today if you want to print it yourself.

If you haven't already booked please let Only a Yolk know by Sunday if you are going. And also Please let her know if you are intending to go down on Friday so that we can negotiate a price for accommodation and some food.

Beaver's Excellent Punnakan Adventure

Good likeness huh? The distinguished receding hairline, the leery grin, the crazed bloodshot eyes, the buck teeth... Oh no that's the beaver!

But Beaver has been out scouting and a run which promises to appeal to the sensibilities of the running elite (who are they? Shouldn't they be handicapped in some way?) is promised. Details are:

Songkhla Hash House Harriers run #1572, Saturday July 23rd, 4:30 p.m.
Hare: Beavershot
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the Old Hatyai road for 4.7k. Turn left for 8k then right at Wat Keow Kloy for 1.2k, then turn left and go 500m to the run site near the sala on the left.

Sunday's (July 24th, 4:30 p.m.) HH3 run is another Punnakan adventure, but is rather further from Wat Keow Kloy - about 8k further, in the vicinity of Gam Ling Reservoir. Follow the same misdirections as for Saturday, keep going down Punnakan and look for the sign on the left somewhere around the abattoir, before the Conference Center. The hare is Nicheow and there are rumors that there may be some kind of an on-on after chez Toyboy - but it's only a rumor at this stage.

Finally, don't forget that this is the last week before the outstation run at Wan Wen Resort in Satun, so if you haven't already booked, speak to Only a Yolk this weekend. Members are 400 Baht, guests are 1000 Baht, which includes accommodation in discretely companionable (i.e. you may have to share with someone else!) chalets, food, all the beer you could possibly want to drink, a run on Saturday and Kayaking on Sunday morning, with some raucous and distasteful entertainment planned for Saturday evening. A number of people are already planning a pre-binge warm-up on Friday for which accommodation etc. will be extra but not too much!) and directions to the resort will be distributed at this weekend's runs.

Wound-lickin' good!

Just what was needed after Saturday's pussy monster. 9k'ish for the long run and 5k for the short run laid live by the exhausted hare who was caught on several occasions by the pack, and who at one point had to have first aid rendered to him by front runners, Sagai and 4-wheel after he slipped down a bank and gashed his elbow.

The long run looked likely to claim two victims as well, as two almost-virgins wandered beyond the confines of the short run and 2 hours later had not been seen or heard of since. Happily they had done the sensible thing and when the paper ran out at the unbroken 3rd check, turned round and followed it homewards, being located and 'rescued' by Nicheow as the search parties were just being organised.

Sex Ao Ao alias Mongolian Fuckrat was home first in about 1h 13m but it was almost 2 hours before all the runners drifted in. Knackerwurst (a.k.a. I want my wife) meritoriously completed the short run in about one and a half hours accompanied by a team of nurses who mopped his brow as he sprang lightly across... etc. Only a Yolk, disguised as Moo Sahb, evaded being iced for a completely gratuitous short cut with Sexy Girl which had them scrambling down rocky cliffs instead of enjoying the verdant orchards on the descent. Praise for the run was muted, possibly because none of the beer stops materialised.

But next week it will all be different, as Beavershot and Nicheow respectively explore the verdant pastures of Poonakan from opposite ends on Saturday and Sunday. More details later in the week when the pain has become a distant throb.

Where pussies dare

Click on the image to LARGE it!

Who's going to set the monster next year? The pussies put in an early bid for consideration this afternoon with a run that put this years civilized monster, 3 runs back, to shame in the length department with this sanitized, de-F'd version clocking in at between 9.5 and 10k. The GPS-that-never-lies records that the hares put in 5 hours and 8 minutes in laying the run, of which less than 2 hours was spent resting. They went up 434 meters although only reaching a maximum elevation of 187 meters and the pack (or those members of it whose memory did not became hazy when confronted with the fact that they missed out the final hill - Sex Sprinter and Phuk!) devoted a minumum of 1 hour 45 minutes to negotiating the trail, and Buk Toy took considerably more than that!
Tomorrow's HH3 run is promised as being completely pussy-free and will consist of wide shady trails through softly undulating countryside with a single modest ascent up a small hill and a considerate descent through verdant orchards to a gentle trail home in time for tea. Comely maidens will be on hand to mop our mildly perspiring brows as we spring lightly across the forgiving turf and the run will boast at least 3 beer stops. Well, ok that last bit is a slight exaggeration, but the hare is promising a less demanding Sunday excursion than we enjoyed today!

Drifting Moon

The run site for this Thursday's (July 14th 2011, 7:00 p.m.) full moon run has drifted slightly, making it slightly easier to get there by the beaten track (or the tarmaced road for that matter) and the run directions now stand as:

From Songkhla: Take the Old Hatyai road for 4.6k and turn left then go 6k and turn left at the crossroads, then go 1.8k and turn right for 350 meters to the run site by the sala on the left.
The hare is Sex Printer and the usual stuff applies: Beer will be on sale at 3 cans for 100 Baht but if you want to take along a few extra cans to share with yer mates, feel free! Bring a handlight to trip the light fantastic by and some food to add to the communal trough.

While we're at it, Saturday's SH3 run will be courtesy of Les Chats, otherwise known as the pussies.
Details are:

Songkhla Hash House Harriers run #1571: Saturday 16th July 2011, 4:30 p.m.
Hares from: Crackwurst, Only a Yolk, Ram It In, Meals on Wheels, Temporary Relief and Handjob.
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo Intersection take the new Yala road for 7k and turn right into the run site.

And finally, HH3's run this Sunday (July 17, 4:10 p.m.) will be set by Kai Jeow from the football field behind Ban Sai Kao: From Songkhla, take the old Yala road for 16k and turn right then go 3.5k and turn left just after the big tree and follow the road ahead for about 1k to the run site. (From Hatyai turn right at the Nam Noi traffic lights for about 11.5k and turn right just before the big tree)

So now that you're enhanced

OK, you've just had your Phuk or other enhancement product, and you're ready to boogie. What do you do next? You put an ad in the newspaper, of course. Here's a splendid example from Phnom Penh's Bayon Pearnik.

Are you man enough for...

Just as we were feeling as if we needed a bit of a lift, along comes Phuk to help us get it on.
  • All Natural
  • Effects last 72 hours
  • Maximum potency
  • Works in just 45 minutes
  • Can be taken with alcohol
  • May cause bisexuality, whatever that is.
But can he deliver on all this hype? We shall see on Saturday at:

Songkhla Hash House Harriers run # 1570, Satyrday July 9th, 2011: 4:30 p.m.
Hare: Phuk
Missederections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the new Yala road for 7k to the run site on the left.

Sunday's (July 10th 4:10 p.m.) HH3 run is being set by Moo Sahb who is actively seeking partners for a pleasurable laying experience, although the doggies will be in attendance as well to make sure that the boasted 72-hour-phuk-effect doesn't get in the way of things, as it were.
Probable run site is at the foot of Khao Ron: from Songkhla, take the old Hatyai road for 4.6k turn left for 6k then left for 5k and left into the Khao Ron road and bear left at the Y junction in 500m, then straight on for about 1k to the run site on the right. (From Hatyai turn right at the Nam Noi traffic lights and go 10.5 k, then turn into the Khao Ron road etc.)

On On On On On On On On On On On!
