A 'Stick with what you know'
visit to Brittany

16th - 20th March 2012

 

HuelgoatSaturday at Huelgoat

Carnage Travel arrived at Huelgoat for the first hash of the weekend.

This has been a venue for previous L2H3 runs.

 

 

Hares had set off in advance to lay the trail.

Hashers waited on the coach for the heavy rain to ease up before setting out on the run...

... perfect timing by Tonto!

The run

The run started well, taking in the wonderful features of the Huelgoat National Park and the river Argent. But torrential rain saturated hashers' brains! The longs lost the trail, and many resorted to the 'escape route' - except for our heroes, Zebedee and Hornby. The shorts did much better, many completing the whole of their trail - except for Bronyon and Foo Foo who followed the leat in the wrong direction for several miles but were clever enough to find their own way back!

Sunday - Trevignon

The second run of the weekend was at Trevignon - sorry no photos - but it was a brilliant hash. Coast, beach, paths, woods, ancient font, thatched cottages, fields and plenty of brambles! Everyone arrived back pretty much together, with the last loop of the long trail around the peninsula completed in rain and hail - "good for cooling down at the end of a great run" declared Horby.
