Great Hash run on 23rd November




One of the great things about a Hash run is the beautiful trail running route within 20-30 Kms of Bangalore. The trail runs that RFL does including Bellandur, Kanakpura road and even ONV have their origins in HASH runs. HASH runs are usually held on Sunday afternoons starting 3:45PM or so. They also provide a great opportunity to socialise and network. Checkout the Bangalorehash website and also the hash group on RFL. I greatly enjoyed the run on 23rd November which was in a trail beyond Yelahanka. It was very beautiful and the weather was ,once again, perfect for running. Did about 8.5Kms in 66 minutes of run/walk. I got rides from two wonderful Hashers: Vikram while going and Jayanth on the way back. While the average Hash runner may not run long distance there are a quite a few Hash runners who are RFL runners and run marathons/ultra marathons regularly. And of course a few serious RFL runners, like me, have started enjoying Hash runs - though I am not able to go as regularly as I would have liked to. Perhaps in 2009....
