Scary concrete

With leg injuries to hashers an ever present risk, judging from the last couple of weeks, a timely reminder from this week's hare that concrete is a potentially life threatening substance, particularly if you happen to find your legs encased in it when you go for a swim. So do take care while you are on your way to the runsite this week particularly if your first name happens to begin with the letter 'J'.
Details are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1831, Saturday July 16, 2016, 4:30 p.m.
Hare: Yardstick
Misdirections: From the Khao Seng intersection take the Old Yala Road for 16km (5.3km from the NYR / OYR intersection at Ang Thong) and turn right just before Wat Kuhn Thong. Proceed along the concrete & bitumen road for 2.0km, then turn left and go 1.2km along the new concrete & dirt road to the runsite. The new concrete is a bit daunting with high drop-offs and is rather narrow – take care; but the dirt road does get better as you drive along it.  Runsite co-ordinates are:  7° 01.922' N  100° 38.514' E

Sunday is business as usual at HH3 after last weeks brief interlope, and the hare is Robocop, the runsite being the football field beyond Nern Pijit: from the OHR 4.7k junction turn left for about 12k - past Wat Nern Pijit - then turn right and follow the road for about 1k to the run site on the right at 6 59 16.88 N 100 34 17.84 E. Map below for the directionally imaginative.


  1. As the hare has noted, the misdirections above were not Hatyai friendly. So if you are traveling to the SH3 run on Saturday from Hatyai you should make your way to Tha Kham, then head East towards Sai Kao and at the big tree after 6k go straight ahead towards Khun Thong for a further 1.5k before turning right and following the scary concrete etc. for 1.2k to the run site. Hatyai residents on Sunday should also head for Tha Kham or better, Wat Keow Kloy which is 2k South and then head South for a further 4k before turning right for 1k.

  2. Hang on, wasn't last week business as usual for HH3? And the hare was some guy called Khai Jiao?

    1. Sadly a less than regular occurrence these days. At this rate it will take me another 5 years to reach my 100 lays at HH3.

  3. A slight reprieve for drivers on Saturday, the locals must have taken pity on us and the sides of the concrete have been packed in with dirt. Still dastardly narrow though and you would do a SI if you venture too close to the edges.

  4. Suggest do away with those monsters of the road and buy a more in-tune-with-nature Honda Wave. They go everywhere and you can still fit a kid, a bag of shreddy, a picnic hamper and an esky full of beer on the back. Just don't get a flat tyre!
