Hash House Harriers 1545
The Tyne, Newcastle
Due to a lack of camerawork on my part, I have instead included an image demonstrating the hash negotiating the Byker section of the trail. ( Minus the fancy dress – although the lycra/utility belt isn’t far off)
The Tyne bar was this week’s venue, and despite a day with all the seasons rolled into one, remained dry and light if not a little nippy in places. The evening saw a good turnout of hashers for the first hash sans torches, although we were in the main well wrapped up against the chill.
The hare issued such brief instructions before we all set off on the trail that the hash erroneously headed off on a previous trail instead of the freshly floured offering of the evening. Confusion was quickly removed by the hare as the hash headed off into the Byker Wall, where we had some considerable success in avoiding house breakers, dodgy individuals and dog poo in our quest to follow the labyrinth like trail through the estate.Emerging unscathed, the hash, headed through cunning trails back to the cycle path (and a cracking riverside ramble) before dropping down to St Peters basin for a slightly dodgy horse racing beer stop, and back to the pub for a rowdy circle consisting mainly of the hare receiving all the down down’s before turning into the pub for a final drink.
Thanks to the hare for a lovely evening and a great pub ( even Pimp was moved to praise Pop’s choice).
Sunday is Inncon’s run from Seaham and I’m hoping he might do a Brexit punned write up for it so I don’t have too. Check the hareline as it will be a cracker!
Next week BM will be making his debut haring return of 2019 for his annual Beer Festival Run from Habita, the SU at Northumbria University. Please be aware the trail will be incredibly short as the run is just an excuse to go to the Beer Festival. You have been notified.
