SIR THOMARSE and a Virgin
I have been Hashing regularly for 49 years and cannot remember a run start from this location .Happy to be wrong but I reckon it was VIRGIN start celebrating all that is Scottish .We even ran in St Andrews Way, Carlyle Crescent and Aberfedy Way
Sir Tom handed out a 3 page map showing 21 FTs and 6 checks .A Phantom’s delight !
The trail used numerous FTs before crossing the Freeway by a footbridge , then Warwick Rd ,thru Warwick station and onto a drink stop ,where walkers and the fitter fellows (runners ) arrived together after being kept together by many FTs and checks .
At the drink stop Elbows tried , without success ,to use his wiles on a young mother with small son and babe in arms – failed again !!
It was then that the front runners took off leaving their slower counterparts to TRY AND KEEP UP ! Some Mates ?? A check at end of a walkway saw runners check everywhere but the obvious but the map holders ,with only Scummy in tow ,found the right way home
Back at the shiny new Bucket we noted Antman and dog ,lost and tired in that order , arrive back by HAGGIS Ambulance .
After a traditional address to the Haggis (both ) a tasty serve or two of Shepherd’s Pie was quickly devoured and we retired to search for GALLILEO ‘s Star of Bethlehem .
A good run ,good location ,good food and Goodbye !!
ON ON Phantom
