The centerpiece of this week's double SH3/HFMH3 run is the disused abattoir in Poonakan Road, where the SH3 run will begin in broad daylight, and the HFMH3 run will end some time later when it's dark enough for the place to be spooky, following which for those with a taste for the macabre there will be a camp-out in a deserted mansion next to the abattoir where it is said the spirits of the dead still walk by moonlight.... etc. etc.
The logistics for the run are complex but are being organised by hare, Sex Sprinter. Basically you should just turn up as normal at the run site with your camping gear if you intend to spend the night there, and go with the flow. This may involve a white-knuckle ride on the back of a pick up to the end of the SH3 run if you want to guard the beer truck or do the short run, and if you don't wish to participate in the HFMH3 run, which will begin from the end-point of the SH3 run, then you get to experience the white knuckle ride in the downward direction! Sound like fun? Well you watch horror movies don't you? So now you get to experience one in the comfort of your very own body!
Details as far as we can reveal are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run#1781, Saturday August 1st, 2015, 4:30 p.m.
Hare: Sex Sprinter
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai road for 4.7k and turn left for 8k, then turn right (at Wat Keow Kloy into Poonakan) for 8k and turn right into Soi 10 just before the spooky abattoir. Woooooooooo! Look for a sign (probably a goats head mounted on a stick! ed.)
Hatyai Full Moon H3 run #120: all details as above except that the run itself will start from the end of the SH3 run, so anyone just wanting to come to the HFMH3 run should be at the SH3 runsite at 6:30 p.m. from whence they will be magically conveyed to the start of the run! Usual stuff applies: Bring a hand/head light and some food if you feel like it as well as some beer or whatever you will feel like drinking as there will probably only be limited supplies of Full Moon Special Brew on sale
Sunday's (2nd August) HH3 run will see a return to family values and the pleasant leafy pursuit of athletic excellence which we've all come to expect from HH3 (as well as copious quantities of food and beer to which all are welcome, indeed encouraged to contribute.) The occasion is the 30th birthday of Sex Phone, alias Yolk's Poke who is being specially bussed in for the occasion after being surgically removed from her job (who'd have thought that nice little zombie would turn into a raging workaholic?). The venue is Egg Towers:From the Ko Yo intersection, take the old Hatyai road for 4k and turn left for 5.2k, then turn right through the temple arch at Borogam and follow the signs for about 500 meters to the runsite. Traditional map below, anyone needing counselling about their directional frailties should call either Egghead (081 9691227) or for those of a vernacular inclination, Only a Yolk (089 6542351).
The Hares are his Eggness and canine acolytes.
