Songkhla in Hatyai, Hatyai in Songkhla

Our festive season runs are swapping home turf this weekend with the Christmas Eve SH3 run being down Poonakan way and the Sunday, Christmas Day HH3 run being at Egg Towers. Both runs are 'normal' runs (whatever that entails!) which means that the beer trucks will be in operation and selling beer at both runs and all contributions of food to eat after the runs are welcome although both sets of hosts will be providing something a little special. But as a special dispensation if  anyone thinks that they will want to carry on-on after the beer truck runs out, then extra beer is always welcome and bearing in mind that the hosts' food contribution on Sunday will be Christmas dinner, British style  contributions of mince pies and mulled wine would not go amiss and there will be a BBQ available for anyone one who wants to add to the meat pile although Cherie the goat and the cats are strictly off the menu!
The SH3 details are:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1853, Saturday December 24th 2016, 4:30 p.m.
Hares: Sex Sprinter and family
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 for 8k. Turn left into Soi 10 and go about 200m to the runsite in Superpig's auxiliary house on the left. From Hatyai take Poonakan for 3k from the Kanjanawanit road intersection and turn right into Soi 10.
Sunday's HH3 run is at Egg Towers. From the traffic lights at Kuan Hin on the OHR (Ko Yo intersection, 4k, Ko Hong intersection, 13k) turn left or right respectively and go 5.2 k (bearing right with the road at 4k not straight ahead) and turn left thru the temple arch at Wat Borogam. Go ahead 200m then turn right and go 200m keeping the temple wall on the left, then turn left at the T junction for 100m and turn right to the parking area. Park on solid ground i.e. the road or the newly filled area as there is a lot of water around!


  1. And this week's deliberate mistake ( no one picked it up - what's the matter with you people?) is as shown above in red, left into Soi 10 if you're coming from Wat Keow Kloy, not right.

  2. T'was the first thing I spotted. In fact, I picked it up before you posted the mis-directions, or got out of bed even... I just didn't want to come across as being pedantic. :P

    But we all know what you meant, headEgg!

  3. It's the new reality, we just assume you're speaking of the cuff, and you'll reverse your position within a tweet or two.

  4. Maybe I should run for president. Nah!Wuldn't fly!

  5. Esp if you can't spell wouldn't. Not even Trump effs that one up!
