Botton - A Run for Others

First up, a bit about our venue for this r*n. Lower House Sensory Farm offers a Dementia Friendly two hour outdoor sensory experience for people being cared for in their own home, who attend day-care or are in residential care. It is a space to explore and engage in outdoor activities based on the five senses of taste, sight, touch, smell, and sound. We experienced all those senses on this r*n.

We were also joined by visitors from 261 Fearless which is an organisation that uses running as a vehicle to empower and unite women. I suppose you could summarise today's r*n as a "collab" (a term I believe young folk use).

Following a very comprehensive briefing from the hares that detailed the finer points of hash etiquette, we were off! About 30 or so in number quickly experienced the touch of cold water lapping our ankles as the fields were sodden but so far the forecast heavy rain held off.

The sight of the stunning scenery that lead us to Lowgill was breathtaking. It was here the wimps and rambos split, with some confusion that led to some rambos doing their bit in reverse! Many parts of the trail were deep in shiggy topped up by the cows for good measure which no doubt explains the smell of my r*nning shoes.

At Stairend Bridge we found the beer stop minus rambos. As the wimps moved on we could see the rambos descending at speed for their beer, encouraged by the sound of the hash horn.

The trail now headed back toward a promise of hot food, and still the rain held off. Eventually, Lower House Sensory Farm came back into view. The smell of hot food soon greeted us with the welcome taste of chilli & rice or a vegetable cobbler. A tour of the farm followed as did an impromptu circle where the hosts received down downs for being hosts and having a hash crash.

    Bubbles Who needs sunshine when you’ve got rain… mud, sludge, hills, bared wire, locked gates, slippery stiles, more hills, woods, bridges, streams, a beerstop and 38 enthusiastic happy hashers!
    Hats off to the hares, how they managed to recce that route with a poor map, no compass and no sense of direction is beyond me – even the hare en-route had no idea where the trail went1
    By amazing coincidence, or exquisite planning, both the Rambo and Wimp packs all finished the route within a few minutes of each other. Was it long enough? Was it hard enough? Would you come again?
    Perfect facilities for the On Inn – roaring fires, nice and dry, more food than we were able to eat and the sound of laughter ringing in the air.
    A great turnout, a great run and superb hosts. Thank you, Becky and Tony, for the use of your amazing barn!
    Down downs to Hares of course, Baldrick’s 500th run, virgins and hash crash victims.
    Announcements – upcoming weekend has 3 places remaining – book in quick!
    Forever Blowing and Major Twit… can I come again?!
