Beers: Banks’s mild, Banks’s Bitter, Cocker Hoop, StrongbowHares: Who’s the Daddy & Tough Love (although Tough Love’s sister helped instead)
Trail: Bring on Wyre Forest H3’s very own mud runner oblivion marathon number 2! Who’s the Daddy has obviously been taking tips from Hash Quack. 18 adults, 3 kids and 5 dogs set off for what was advertised as a 5 mile run. (Copulation clocked up 8.5…) Starting out along the canal and up through the lanes where Doggy Fashion soon had to retire due to a pulled muscle (from kiting in flip flops) and it wasn’t long before one of the gents went back to keep her company… The rest of us squelched through fields of mud, avoiding cattle, horses, thistles and electric fences. More fields of rotting crops, marshland, muddy trails and a spectacularly waterlogged false trail in Trench Woods. We’ll all end up with trench foot at this rate! A lovely, lengthy run and it was almost dark by the time we got back to the on-inn!
Despite ducking out of tonight’s hash, Doggy Fashion met us back at the Bridge and awarded down-downs to Who’s the Daddy and Tough Love for the muddiest hash ever (was it cruel to give Tough Love an empty glass?) - there might be some competition between theirs and Hash Quack’s hashes – watch out everyone! Penelope Pitstop and Lost Skywalker for needing to be carried across one particular puddle; Trenchfoot not only for his dashing suit but also for dropping chilli sauce onto Doggy Fashion’s foot; and finally for Game Bird after hearing that she was chased by a herd of cows, causing her to run into the smelly stuff!
This Sunday: Hash Quack is meeting with the Triathlon juniors for a cycle through the woods. Meet at the Wyre Forest visitor centre at 11am, all welcome!
Next week: The Sun & Slipper, Mamble
