A double Hatyai weekend
What do we know?
There will be a car rally to the run site starting from Hatyai Park at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday with lunch to follow. The run itself is intended to start at 3:30 p.m. but that may slip a little to accommodate latecomers including anyone who can't join the car rally. Following the run, all the beer and food will be included in the price which is 100 Baht for named Hatyai H3 runners, 500 Baht for guests and non-HH3-named runners. Those who want to stay should take camping gear and there will be ample space for tents etc. The location of the run site, which is currently a closely guarded secret, is not the same as the 900th run but is in the same general area. More information will be passed on as soon as it is released.
Sunday's run, which will be a regular HH3 run (i.e., 60 Baht for adults, 30 Baht for kids), will be set by Kai Jeow (alias Egghead) and will be from the football field behind Wat Khokpayomsukaram at Nern Pijit. SH3 runners who can't make the HH3 run on Saturday or who don't qualify for the members' rate are recommended to come to the Sunday run, where they will be made very welcome.
From the Ko Yo intersection take the Old Hatyai road for 4.7k and turn left. follow the road ahead through Tha Kham and past Wat Keow Kloy, then at 11k follow the road as it bends right at Wat Nern Pijit for a further 1k then turn right for 1k to the run site at 6.988001°100.571269°
