Hash Run Thursday 19 September 2019

As Elaine mentioned in her recent Newsletter, the club will be holding a Hash Run (now on Thursday 19 September). Designed as a fun event, we hope that lots of you can make it along to the Run. Here are some details in order to give you an idea what it will involve:-

Aim of the run: For everyone to finish the course as close together as possible. The task of the speedy runners at the front is to figure out the route for the runners behind.

Shortest route: 6km (if you take no incorrect turns) Longest route: 12.3km (you've taken every wrong turn!)

Meeting point: car park on Links Rd North/near Foodmek in Tayport at 6.30

We will then jog 1km to the start with a view to starting as a group at 6.45

The run should take around 45minutes to complete.

Finding your way around the course:

The route will not be shown to you before you run.

You will be set off down a path. There are three choices at each junction: 1. No marking - just keep running straight! 2. One arrow - follow it! 3. Two arrows - this will give you choices. The runners at the front can choose which way to go, you can separate or stay together - it's up to you!

Once you've chosen your route you will either come to another arrow (congratulations you've gone the right way!) or a cross (X) (oops you've gone the wrong way). You do not need to all stay as a group, the idea is that the faster runners run ahead to work out the route.

If you have gone the correct way you must somehow get the message back to the runners behind you, either by running back or shouting back. Please ensure that the message regarding the right route is passed back to everyone so this is everyone's responsibility - leave no (wo)man behind!

If you've chosen the incorrect route then you must run back to the junction and choose another route.

Hint: a good way of making sure that everyone picks the right route is to scuff out the incorrect arrow at the junction so that only one remains.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there, and making it round the course as a true DRR team!
