Visit to Hangzhou by the Shanghai Taiping Hash on Sat, 18 Jan

UPDATE: See photos and a short report of the event here (click link). In summary, it was a great Hash and a fine circle and Bash. On! On!

Hey Folks,

The HZH3 board has been quiet for a LONG time, but stay tuned because some BIG news for the HZH3 is just around the corner! Prepare for more regular On Ons! and Down downs! than Hangzhou has seen in many a moon!   ;)

Anyhoo, for now, I’m just posting a quick message about a visit to Hangzhou by the Shanghai Taiping Hash this Saturday (18 Jan 2014). Yes, you’re right, it’s pretty late notice, but I just heard about it this morning too.

TIME: The meeting time will be 12.30/12.45pm this Saturday (18 Jan) afternoon. The hares set off at 1pm, so make sure you arrive before then. It can be very crowded with traffic on your way there going south of West Lake and along the river on Zhijiang Road, so make sure you allow for that!

PLACE: The start meeting point is in the carpark below the Six Harmonies Pagoda (六和塔 LiuHe Ta) which is down on Zhijiang Road near the Qiantang River.

See this Google Map link for the location of the start point:  http://goo.gl/maps/GT9M6

COSTS: The Shanghai Taiping Hash is charging 200rmb for Shanghainese participants, but they’ve said we can join them for 50rmb for the Hash or 100rmb for the Hash plus the Bash (the dinner and drinks – Confirm Bash booking by email. See below! The Bash should be finished by or before 7.30pm.). The Bash will actually be just about 1 or 2 kms away from the start point as the crow flies, but many twisty trails and hilly ascents and descents as the runner/walker travels… i.e. about 10kms for runners/joggers.

WHO: This Hash is open to both Runners/Joggers and also Walkers. The walkers will have a shorter, slightly less scenic route.

BRING: Water and a full change of warm clothes (including shoes and socks) for after the run/jog/walk.  The Shanghai guys and girls will allow us to store a bag on their bus.

So, that’s about it, for now…

Finally, they need to book seats/tables for the Bash dinner, so if you plan to go to the Bash, please let us (HZH3) know today or tomorrow. See our Email address below.

On! On!

    PS. A guy who knows the trails inside and outside of Hangzhou better than anybody (No. It’s not me. :)) is also organising a hike this Saturday morning, if that’s more your speed.

    It’s technically possible to do the hike then the Hash run… ;)

    Unfortunately, the hike has just been cancelled by the organiser.
