New Binjiang District running club!!!

Hey Folks,

At last someone, actually an old friend of mine and the original Hangzhou Hashers, has set up a Binjiang District running group every Tuesday night starting at 7.30pm!

It’s a bit of a pity that it’s on the same day as the Maya Bar “Even If It Rains” running group, but I guess we don’t get too many Binjiangers heading up to our side of the river to run and vice versa anyway. But, it would still have been good to have the option to do both each week.

In any case, more organised group running in Hangzhou is a good thing!   🙂

It starts and finishes at FX Outdoor store, which is very near a Starbucks, other cafes, restaurants and bars…

See map: http://j.map.baidu.com/hjAa5

It also looks like it’s about 500m walk away from the Hangzhou Metro Line 4 LianZhuang Station (construction still not completed???).

The organiser, a well-known Hangzhou runner, Xiping Luo, says:

Join us Tuesday, 19:30 @ FX Outdoor Store, Binjiang, provide place for change clothes shoes , and leave your stuff in the store when you go running
– 5k , 10K, 16K course

Address: 杭州市滨盛路4315号(星巴克旁)   No. 4315 Binsheng Road, Binjiang

Sounds good!

The Hangzhou International School “Dragon Run” – 5K Road Race and Fun Run – Sat, 30 May, 8am

Hey Everyone,

One of Hangzhou’s favourite (small) road runs is just around the corner.

Usually, about 250-300 people run the course. I think the 5km race record is somewhere under 18 minutes… (???) I know there are a few runners in the Maya Bar “Even If It Rains” group who could give that a good shake. What about in the Hangzhou Hash group?

After the event the school hosts a family fun fair and jumble sale (aka “bazaar”) and also a BBQ up to about 1pm and this year they are continuing those traditions. All proceeds will go to the Carnations School Charity to help students with autism in Hangzhou.

The Hangzhou International School “Dragons” 5K Road Race and Fun Run – Sat, 30 May, 8am

What:  5 km road race and fun run + Family fair day (fun and games) + Bazaar + BBQ – All profits donated to charity.

Where:  Start and finish at the Hangzhou International School gates just south of the QianTang river in Binjiang District.

Address: 滨江区, 东信大道78号, 杭州国际学校 – HIS, 78 DongXin DaDao, Binjiang Qu

You can go to the Fun Run in the morning and then go to the Hangzhou Hash #139 in the afternoon.  🙂   I’ll be doing both events for sure (if I’m in Hangzhou…)!!!

29 Mar 2014 – Moganshan Trail Run

Hi HZH3 Hashers and Friends,

In case you haven’t heard about this Moganshan Trail Run Series by “Transition Events”, I thought I’d pass it on. See details below.

I know some Shanghai Taiping and Drunken Dragon Hashers are going to do it.

Apparently, the 29 March run will be “the first of 4 trail runs in North Zhejiang”. I don’t think dates or places for the next 3 runs have been released yet. Although, the last should be back at Moganshan, where Transition Events seems to be based.

Cheers,

Sweet FA

Transition Events Trail Series

Stage 1 – Moganshan Trail Run

The first event takes place Saturday 29th March. The points race is 21km, however there are 3 x 7km relays for those that want a challenging shorter run.

Moganshan’s bamboo forests provide hilly trails, tracks, villages and streams to run through, and we aim to keep you off-road for 80% of the route!

More info and entry here
