Good to see a new face (Ines) some new faces returned and some old faces we haven’t seen for a little while making up a large group of runners on a beautiful evening. 

The trail was lovely, passing round Paradise Wood on the way out (good haring as everyone expected it to go through the wood) and catching a good view of the 3 cooling towers which will not be a feature of any more hashes as they are coming down on Sunday!  We continued through woods where there was definitely some shortcutting and scrumping and on through the Earth Trust before reaching the clumps.  The walkers branched off here while the runners staggered up Round Hill – speaking for myself there, some of the others looked pretty professional according to the group from Harwell Harriers who were there too.  We went round and up and down the hill in various directions at various checks.  Julie Andrews checked down hill – amateur mistake – but took the hare’s daughter with him so he was called back pretty quickly – very professional hashing skulduggery.  We continued through the woods, coming out in Little Wittenham where we followed the road (who shut that footpath?) before cutting into Paradise Wood for a final run through the trees before re-joining the track to go back into the village.

A great trail with masses of flour. 

The red pants went to Julie Andrews for leading a young lady astray.
