RUN NO. 2379 DIPLO 25MAR2014

RUN NO. 2379
DATE: 25MAR2014

At Diplo

Look at Diplo, see the trees
Watch the forest in the breeze
Things won't be like this in a year or two
If building new embassies is the thing to do
Seize the night
Seize the day
Things won't always be this way

Going up to Diplo is like visiting an old friend – lovely and familiar in parts, but with plenty more to explore together. Last week’s trail was a combination of known and new, with lots of water crossings to keep the mudlarks amongst us happy. A road run at the end made the trail just under 5 km (I did see Hash Hound run up and down the road a bit more to try to make the 5k mark).

The food was worth a special mention – there’s something very satisfying about thick soup and homemade bread – followed by cake! Delicious – thanks Hares! 

This week’s run is at Diplo again – another delightful mix of old and new (or ‘so old it has become new again!!’). Enjoy the site while it’s available – on our last recce we saw workers putting in some things that look very much like building markers….

Some insight into tonight’s run:

fresh air and jungle peaks
sky inked with pale blue
the green leaves, hashers cheerfully pass
the hens on reaching the top of the HILL
are heard muttering threats
red, rash and blue
all seem to have some kind of power
as the trail is almost at an end
and all seems to be reliant on just the next bend
hash is so intoxicating
that away from it you cannot be pulled

come along and join the fun

there’s something here for everyone.
