After travelling halfway around the world to be with us at the hash on Saturday, and cancelling an important prior engagement, our GM was forgotten by our anonymous front runner (SS, no not the one in Blighty), and left waiting at the door at her home in Hatyai. Jumping on her steed and racing to be at the circle for the start of the run, meanwhile being rescued and escorted to the runsite by YS, our beloved GM, All Black, made a tumultuous return, to once again lead the flock through the valleys of horror.
Well actually more like the horrible hills, if one was
to listen to the complaints of the back-checked long (& short) runners.
The long run was in fact only 4.8km long and only a
mere 175m in ascent, so it should have been one of the easiest runs of the
year. Admittedly there were the 3 check-backs & 7 false trails which may
have added a little bit to the length, if anyone, and quite a few of the long
runners did, venture down, or up, most of them. Luckily due to the tight
confines of the surrounding hills, no-one was lost and everyone returned to the
runsite for a rather long & boisterous circle.
