Run 1913, 17 April, Yuen Long

Strange Encounters


Swearing at campus I run down the hill to the MTR. The school buses always decide to take a half-hour break just when you need them. Getting to Shatin I take the bus assuming I will be setting off at least half an hour after everyone. Dashing into the park – to my surprise we still have not started running. Liberace is lost as usual, struggling to find the starting location, but we set off running without him. Stripping into my running clothes, I set off quickly, catching up with Golden Balls and Stingray. However I quickly realise I’ve put my shorts on the wrong way. Stopping, hiding from One Eyed Jack’s creepy stares, I reverse my shorts. Clothes in the right direction, the running commences in earnest.

Following the nullah on the right hand side we come across a check. Going left I hear what I can only describe as the most vicious canine that ever existed. I ask Stingray to come check with me. He quickly pushes No Rough Stuff under the bus and runs away in the opposite direction. Turns out the vicious canine is chained up and it’s a dead end anyway. Finding the correct trail we weave through the village, pissing of locals with cries of Trail and On On!! Eventually the village endes and the shiggy begins. The trail leads us through a typical New Territories area of tall grass, graves, small houses and dogs. At the base of the hill I look upwards to see some light shining on the side of the hill. I ask One Eyed Jack whether it’s a hasher or some lost sod. He informs me Catch Of The Day had left early and is doing the run on her crutches. The group splits up with Stingray, One Eyed Jack, Radio One, and myself going for the full run and the rest turning back. Passing the mad Japanese woman, attempting to penetrate the hill with her crutches, we get to the top of the ridge line. Unencumbered by dogs and checks I run ahead and lose everyone.

The run continues along the top of the hill. The view down into the city is fantastic. One could almost call it breathtaking, assuming one had been punched in the stomach and lost one’s breath while looking at the view. Abiding by the laws of physics (Fuck you Newton!) the trail eventually goes down. One final check in a village sends me left. Wandering through the maze of houses, the trail spits us out by the nullah once again. Predictably the trail leads us to the loving embrace of cold beer, hot food and above-room-temperature wine (Fuck you Gibbs!). Next rambos in are One Eyed Jack, Stingray, Radio One and Liberace, roughly in order of arrival. Liberace tells us to pick up the Mad Kamikaze Cripple at the base of the hill. He and the Walky Talky set off in the van to try and get the Bloody Minded One.

So a quick review of the wimps misadventure. Golden Balls did a short walk around because he cannot get wet. Something about being Frankenstein’s monster and the glue will fail causing his limbs to fall off. Side note to the side note: GB also saved the day and got beer due to Eunuch not being able to make it. Velcro Lips and No Rough Stuff walked a fair way up the hill before saying fuck this and going back. Not entirely sure what Dram and T-Bird did but it did involve not going up the hill. So at the precise time of “bloody late” we recovered the Grand Mattress. Holding to the Bushido code she refused liberace’s van, safe choice, and finished the run. Liberace went home due to it being officially “bloody late”. The circle was completed like a 10-year-old completes his homework, without desire or care.

Run 1911, 3 April, Fanling

Running for Office

NRS curtsey

This week’s hare was Golden Balls again. The run started at Fanling Recreation round. The hare, hash beer Eunuch, GM Catch of the day, Dingaling, One Eyed Jack, Geriatric and Penile Dementia had already arrived when Liberace carried the ice in. Then we had No Rough Stuff, Radio 1 and Golden Jelly turning up late.
The GM waited some time for No Rough Stuff to change into her hash gear, but she seemed to have no intention of getting changed. After 10 minutes she just asked why didn’t she start the run as she still had no rough stuff. She decided to do the hash in executive dressing.
After GB gave a bullshit briefing, we started chasing the trail to the footbridge across San Wan Road in the direction of Salesman’s house direction – except Eunuch he cannot run because he got the outbreaking measles, which he claimed is actually syphilis. Running went somewhere through Fanling Lau village then direct to the industrial area. Only One Eyed Jack and No Rough Stuff took the wimps, the others took the rambo when met the first R-W split.
Liberace, Dingaling and Radio 1 met the open open check somewhere beside the nullah. When they checked to the left and met somebody made a mark to indicate there was a T in front. So they checked the other ways everywhere but can’t find out any trail. Finally they checked back to the mark indicating there was T. No longer than 10 metres, trail was found up some steps on the right up the hill to shiggy beside Cow Pat. When in the shiggy, Liberace and Dingaling ran in the front. They kept hearing a very scared voice yelling “Are you! Are you!” anywhere in the whole shiggy trail behind far away by Radio 1.
After the shiggy we met the concrete to the lift up to a footbridge on over Tolo Highway to the opposite side. Turn right to Wo Hop Shek direction. Ran about 5 minutes then met the pagoda beside PTU which was the location of GB’s run couple of months ago.
Past the pagoda I could see no marking any more anywhere. One Eyed Jack still did his own way when the others try everywhere to find out trail. Dingaling and Penile Dementia found out the trail up to the second hill after seeing the second R W split. But I decided short cutting from PaK Wo Road back to the railway station. Radio 1 and No Rough Stuff decided following One Eyed Jack back on their own trail.
They were the first three running back to the circle. Next back was Liberace, then Dingaling and Penile Dementia. As they were so silly not to follow Liberace at the hashing, so they did a total 9 kms distance. Golden Jelly was the second last back. And Geriatric was the red lantern.
Conclusion, it was a very great run. Especially the shiggy that l never done. Thanks so much to Golden balls. – Liberace

Call For Hares

We have hares confirmed until the end of May (see hareline) and now need to fill in the second half of the committee year plus a little further to give the new committee in November some leeway. This is a volunteer call for hares – you can choose a date that suits you. First come first served. We’ll keep this open until Saturday 13 April, when we’ll allocate names to unclaimed dates. The table below shows all the run dates until the end of the year, including Saturday runs.

From the last AGM to the end of May, 21 hashers will have set runs, some of them more than once. Others have helped with things like the pub run and the 1900th run. And of course it goes without saying that some have not pulled their weight, possibly for good reason. We’re looking forward to seeing you guys back on the hareline! Those who have set runs are:
