The run was started at Lucky Gardens and we all set off from the Hash House on the trail. The trail was laid by Squeak and Twinkle Toes and a few other NZ Committee members including Nancy , Duchess of Cambridge, Paula and The Recruiter. ( there may have been others) After a slow and steady ditch crossing we were off with a sharp up hill start to the jungle trail.There were two trails , one long and one short. The front runners charged ahead and found the checks with Sarah P finding the first and Hash Hound finding the second.
The run was fab, up and down and round and round and through the jungle we went. On arrival back to the Shout up we were all treated to vibrant purple Waitangi Day T-shirts courtesy of the NZ committee. After the usual proceeds the feast was upon us and sausage rolls and fish and chips were some of the NZ delicacies to savor. A great run and a fun shout up so congratulations to the NZ committee of which there are 13 this year!!! Go Kiwi’s!
Next weeks run is at Kapok Kanan and is a Valentines Day run. Feel free to dress up in you’re your most “romantic” attire and look for roses on the trail. Treats will await you if you find them. The hares say to stick to the trail as some traditional tracks have been blocked with fallen trees due to recent rainy conditions, and what may appear a short cut may actually leave you arriving late! On ON
NEXT RUN: KAPOK KANAN
