(Sunday 20 March 2011)
The keenest hashers' award has to go to Confusion,Virgin Mouth and Supermarket Trolley, who arrived a good 30 minutes before anyone else and consequently had the choice of which poubelle to park next to. We were greeted by the extremely organized Hares; Dancing Srubber and Moya, who had already finished with their preparations and were sat down having croissants and coffee. This was in spite of being landed with acting as Bier Meisters on the last minute, as our ever present Bier Meister / Haberdashery / Co-hare and general dog's body; Pedo, had dared to take a weekend off. Gradually the other hashers arrived in dribs and drabs. With the bright blue sky above and advent of Spring the next day, we were all leaping around like spring-lambs but jumping around like mountain goats may have been more appropriate for the terrain we were about to face. Just as Perpetual Motion was about to set us off on our merry way, in the distant we could see this blue flash hurtling towards us, it was Dingus and Sudsucker, who had already run the Monaco 10k as a warm up. They were able to give us news of the sterling efforts of Never Cums, who for once had a good excuse for living up to her name, had completed the 10k course in an splendid time of 57 minutes, whilst raising lots of money for Cancer Research. Without further ado we were off. Not surprising the runners were heading in a generally upward direction, at one point Prestressed looked up to the highest point in the far distance and said "I bet we are going all the way to Gourdon" in a jocular fashion. Perpetual Motion certainly thought this was the correct trail and in true military style marched us up to the top of the hill (to a cross) and promptly marched us down again. Dancing Scrubber had very thoughtfully reminded us to bring along a spare pair of shoes as they would be needed after traversing the raging torrent which lay in store for us, what she failed to mention was that a pair of crampons wouldn't go amiss either. Having negotiated another 30 minutes of "undulating terrain", we finally came to a plateau which would have been perfect for running if it wasn't for the fact that the path we were running on was approximately 1 metre wide with a sheer drop on one side, this certainly wasn't the run for those suffering from vertigo. Eventually we started our steep descent to the beer stop, where the walkers had arrived 2 minutes before us, well done hares for getting the timing spot on. After adequate refreshment we started our return to base, which seemed quite a timid affaire compared to the first half, but we still had the raging torrent to look forward to. Just as Sudsucker and myself were in sight of the car park we came across a bunch of walkers including the hares, who directed us back into the woods away from the car park, a loop that Dingus, Perpetual Motion and Sadist decided to ignore, probably because they couldn't facing tackling the river crossing. They needn't have worried as Sudsucker and I were able to tip toe across the raging torrent, leaping from stone to stone without a drop of water touching our shoes. Then it was back to the start and the circle.

Winner by a mile was Road Runner.
On On was in a local restaurant in nearby Bar-sur-Loup, where we were treated to a Line Dancing display, ably performed by Cum Cum and Dancing Scrubber, incredibly to the music of Ricky Martin!
Thanks to the hares for setting such good trails despite the short notice.
