Concrete directions

Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1836, Saturday, August 20, 2016, 4:30 p.m.
Hare: Yardstick 
Misdirections: From Songkhla:  Take the Old Yala road for 11km to the the traffic lights at Ang Thong, (NYR / OYR intersection) and proceed south on the Old Yala Road (OYR) for another 8.3km then turn right just before the road to the new mosque on the west side of the OYR (just past the large microwave tower on the east side of the OYR). Proceed 1.9km along the concrete road through the village following hash signs or paper, to the runsite on the concrete road.

From Hatyai:  take Route 43 East for 20.6km from the Klong Wa intersection (7.8km beyond the Phichit Road junction). Turn left at the SH3 sign for 3.4km along the concrete road, to the runsite on the concrete road.

What is this thing with concrete?

Sunday's HH3 run is being set by Robocop (weally, weally this week) and the run site is: From the Keow Kloy end go 7.5k down Poonakan  and turn left (Ban Nai Lai) for 1.5k then right for 150m and left towards the quarry (do not try to drive up unless you have a monster truck or a Sherman tank). rom Hatyai go up Poonakan for about 5.5k and turn right into Ban Nai Lai etc.

Finally, for those who don't know, SH3/HH3 have been asked if we are willing to host a run in 2018 for about 400 people travelling from Bangkok  by special train to Kuala Lumpur for the Mother Hash 80th birthday run. This is a similar venture to that which happened in 2006 with varying degrees of success. There will be a meeting tonight at Thung Jaeng to which all with views they want to express are welcome as are those who just want to come along to drink beer and enjoy the food.


  1. Updated hare for the SH3 run above and also directions for HH3's run added.
    Big thanks to Crackwurst, Ram it in and Meals on Wheels who, along with the Egg family. were the only representatives of SH3 at yesterdays get together with HH3, marginally relieving the embarrassment of the dozen or so HH3'ers who turned up to meet us talking amongst themselves. What is it about getting elected to the SH3 committee that turns people into sociopaths?

  2. 'Sociopath' may be a bit strong. I'm sure you'd get more people if it were a bit closer than two years, and was about us rather than some people just passing through.
