Full Moon Run and NY Marathon contest
- This Monday, we will join the Hash House Harriers for a full moon run.
The run starts at the Wheat Ridge Rec Center, @ 41st & Kipling.
According the the Hashers web site, "There will be mixes of road and
trail, so bring the flashlights." "Bring $5."
Hashers have been described as drinkers with a running problem. At the
runs, someone (or several) will go out early and set a course. They
mark turns and intersections, usually with flour, but not the turn
direction. The trailing runners work as a group, sending out people in
different directions to find the next mark. They then call back to the
group, with everyone following in the correct direction, hopefully.
It's not that hard. There will be experienced hashers to run with.
Drinking is optional.
For info and directions, go to the site below, and scroll down to the
Denver Full Moon Hash.
