DaytimeR*n 7 »


What a wet, horrible day but the faithful band eventually gathered by the side of the River Kent (Hash Drunk and Pick Me Up had done a few circuits of the one way system, apparently unable to find the car park, but I bet they were hanging out of the car window trying to get a sneak glimpse of trail to save time later)

The Addams Family had done a valiant job, the flour survived the rain but a lot of the multi coloured chalk was washed away, so we will never know what choice words had been written by certain members of the family.

We set off, some at a brisker pace than others. At the last minute Lurch decided to be a true masochist and run with us - probably just as well, coz some of us didn't know Kendal very well!

So the guided tour of this fascinating town began with a trip up the ski slope, around the castle and back down, past the Telecom graveyard of poles and cable drums, and out by K Village ( at last a familiar site!).  Along the river Pick Me Up and I were grateful to be told "There was a wimp split here, but its disappeared" Quick to take a hint we took it and managed to get ahead of the pack just in time to follow an enthusiastic horn blowing hash virgin down a long wrong hill, so back up the hill we went (apparently the Rambo split covered a fast mile along the river) and on over a football pitch and through the alleyways, schools, washing lines, car parks,  fields, pitches and ginnels of South Cumbria.  I should have known that as soon as we made it up to the Monument, the front runners would set off down.

A while later we passed a garden centre - but no time to stop! - and through a park before eventually rejoining a smiling family of Hares who had stuffed themselves with cakes and Hot Chocolate.

The weather was not conducive to standing around supping ale, so after the obligatory down downs for hares and virgin Hornblower Bob. We trouped back along the disinfected 590 and headed for Lancashire.

Kendal was an excellent run location, I expect that we will be back.
