Run 2682 – Run for a Reason 2021

Run for a Reason 2021
This year’s hares were West Coast for the real hash and Bullsbrook for the walkers. A larger than anticipated Perth contingent assembled at Britannia reserve in Mount Hawthorn. I counted about 30 of our boys plus the strange one. All in all a big turnout of about 120 hashers from 8 clubs came to support this year’s charity, HELPING MINDS. Perth’s contribution totalled over $350 so a very good, kind, effort.
The run was expected to be tough, and it was. The trail took us up to the Mt Hawthorn shopping carpark and beyond towards Charles Very-hard (aka Veryard) park in North Perth for a drink stop and then almost directly back downhill to the On On. The hares made good use of the local backlanes and drive throughs with many switchbacks and false trails. In fact the trail and the FRBs pace proved too difficult for the slower runners that a split occurred within 3km. The run was clocked at 7.5km and an hour for the FRBs.
After taking refreshments, the circle was called and as is regularly, it was chaotic but thankfully short despite H4’s best off-key efforts. Before we knew it, the hamper raffle was drawn (SIR KNOB won the main prize), and each club sang their anthem before closing the proceedings.
Our dinner was organised by CRAYFISH who negotiated a deal with the local Subway manager, whose descendants were from the subcontinent. To Crayfish’s surprise, we got what we asked and paid for! Plenty of food!
Too bad the grog ran out, once again, so we couldn’t wash it down. Why is it so difficult to overcater our grog requirements, so often?
