DaytimeR*n 470 »


A free carpark with a tempting view of sailing boats on Windermere - but that was the last we were to see of the lake for the next 2 hours.  We took our lives in our hands as we ran with the traffic down the A592, but quickly made it to the haven of Great Tower wood, somewhere I have spent many weeks over the last few years - but normally with a group of children, surviving in the woods without their mums and Dads, trying to find their way round and being pushed out of their comfort zone to try new things – so not much different to LVH3, surviving without our Mummies and Daddies, trying to find a way out of the woods and being pushed out of our comfort zone – as we actually had to look for the flour – now that makes pleasant change STT!

The concept of a double headed arrow worked for all of us except Upperskirt who wanted to head back down to the start – not realising which way she had come – er UP the hill? Making our way through a children’s playground we were up on the fell – but after that my sense of direction became as good as Upperskirt’s– I managed to pick all of the wrong checks – and they were long ones too!

There were some very tempting woodland paths – with lots of streams to wade through – but we were aiming for higher things – and a beer stop too – complete with mystery wild life which kept Footloose happy for a while as he tried to pick up a snake/worm with his Fruit Shoot bottle.  Just as OfficeTrolley and WhiteNoise caught up with us – we were off again – don’t you just hate it when that happens?!– but with a cunning checkback which meant that they had at least a 2minute breather.

Beautiful parkland for the 2nd half of the r*n, some blind checking from Bubbles, dodgy horn blowing from Baldbrick, slow running from not so speedy Speedbump and we eventually made it back into Great Tower wood to be reunited with our double headed arrows.

As the front runners made it back to the lake we were told that the pub stopped serving in 10 minutes – and so the advance party were dispatched to hold the table.  Our services were needed elsewhere that afternoon – so I hope you had a good meal – The Brown Horse??- of course you did!  And that we didn’t miss too many down downs!

Thanks Highway – an excellent trail – on virgin Hashing territory – with good long checks to keep us all together and an ecologically sound use of flour.
