Pocket Rocket, 80 and still goinig strong.
The first indications for Hahscamp 2017 are here:
Don Benito. Km26. A-374, Ronda. http://www.hoteldonbenito.com/es - Monday 11th-Wednesday 13th September.
One of our Axarquia Hash House Harriers Heroes, Del Boy:
Anyone wishing to take part this year in the VII Carrera Rural at Benamargosa needs to pay the entry fee at one of the banks in the village and then take the receipt up to the gym.
A couple of observations I have made while hashing are:
1. For every downhill, there is an uphill twice as long, and twice as steep.
2. The difference between running uphill and walking uphill is that you take shorter steps while running, the speed remains the same.
And a piece of free advice - never check downhill.
35 Hashers, Six Virgins, Two Easter Eggs, One Birthday Boy and a 10K Run
Axarquia Hash House Harriers were out in force on Easter Sunday for Run 291 which took place in the Vinuela area. Seasoned hares Bunyan and Routemaster set a 10K-plus trail that was mainly on good track but they threw in a few hundred olive groves, some steep-ish valleys and a couple of ploughed fields to stop us getting too comfortable! At the end of the hash Jammy Git and F Troop, who had both just completed their 200thrun, were each awarded a Cadbury’s Crème Egg. A post-hash curry put back all the calories we’d burned off, after which we celebrated Routemaster’s 68th birthday with an excellent carrot-and-other-healthy-things cake made by our very own Null Points.
With good weather here to stay and minimal chance of rain for the coming months now is a good time to join Axarquia Hash Harriers and get fit for the summer. Just click on Next Run for location and directions. All you need is suitable footwear and €4 per person to cover water, soft drinks, beer and crisps. There’s always a post-hash meal, so you might also want to bring something to change into.
(Article by Dim)
The colour run will be on Sunday 2nd April at 10.30
We will run as the hash that week.
Registration is open now and can be carried out at Base Sports in Torre or Velez Malaga. It is €10 each with profits going to charity shown in the link.
You will get a "goodies bag" but not from Base: the place and date/time for collection of the goody bag is still to be advised.
As this is more expensive than the usual Hash, Hashers doing the Colour Run will not be required to pay for Run 291 so that will effectively be AH3 contribution to the charity.
MUY IMPORTANTE! Hasher doing this and wishing to go an on on afterwards PLEASE let me know by next Wednesday as there will be thousands of people wanting to eat and restaurant reservations will very hard to come.
Hasher uniforms in the shape of a cheap Chinese shop TuTu will be compulsory: team colour to be advised!
Meeting time/place etc to be advised.
Riders Running 10K champion and first overall female: Miss Toned.
We can speak for all that where present: a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge thank you to Zulu and Plummet for organising the perfect Hash Camp, setting two beautiful Runs amd just being 2 Hash heroes!!!.
Fellow hashers at the Benamamargosa run (Bunion and Routemaster both won their categories, competitive running?).
Hola Happy Hash Campers,
The final recce has been completed by Camp Hares (no jokes please) and the runs are in place.
Deposits have been handed over to Hotel and are now non- refundable unless the places can be sold on.
All you Ah3 Hashers.
We are a Hashing club and enjoy a Hash every other weekend. To do this we always need Hares to lay trails for each Hash.
If all our regular Hashers (we have 20 to 25 right now), were to Hare, whether it be shared or on their own, for a minimum of TWO Hashes per year, then we would never run out of Hares for the 25 Hashes per year.
Please think about becoming a Hare and put your name down. It's not that difficult.
The history of the Hash film:
Miss Toned (GM) and Zulu (replacement RA) have given hasher Liz her well earned new Hashname: Footfault.
All you Ah3 Hashers. Camp 2016 will be, by popular demand, set at the same locationas last year!! Mecina/Fondales in the Alpujarra's.
The dates are Monday 12th Sept. 2016, to Wednesday14th. Sept.2016 hence two nights three days.This years cost is €50.00 per person per night which includes,Dinner, bed and breakfast, with some drinks, two Hash Runs with the water/beer/softdrinks/crisps included, and is based on two sharing.
This is only €5.00 more than last year and is being subsidised by Hash Cash, (well strictly speaking the Hash funds!!!)
We have negotiated a favourable price with the hotel apart from the subsidybut do need Hashers to commit to attending.
The Hash Runs will be different to last year and the main Hash Run has already be recce'd and, though I say it myself, it is good!!!
Can I ask you to reserve your places via me, email@example.com, and to pay a €50.00 per person deposit A.S.A.P at the next available Hash or by other arrangements. Balance not required until the Camp.
The hotel require 50% deposit due to the booking being so far ahead and onlytwo nights. Once the deposit is paid to the Hotel it becomes non-refundableunless the places can be sold on.
There will be set menu's, as last year, and I will forward these on when I receivethem.
PLEASE let me know with your reservation if you are vegetarian.Dogs are not prohibited but there is a €6.00 supplement per medium sized dog and of course they are not allowed in the restaurant or in the pool area.
Cannot think of anything else but knowing Hashers someone will have a questionso just ask and if I can answer it I will or I know a man/woman who will!!!
Our Hasher and replacement religious advisor F. Troop did not only take part in the 10 km run in Marbella but bloody well won his category! His time: 43.59. Well done from all of us!
Yes folks it is coming up to that time of year again (well in about 5 months anyway).
CAMP '16 IS LOOMING LARGE ON THE HORIZON.
Zulu is on the case looking at venues and trails. Possibly the same venue as Camp '15, different trail.
The dates will be as laid down in tablets of beer, put it in your diaries: the second Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in September.
Arrive Camp '16 on Monday 12th.
Main run on Tuesday 13th.
Recovery run on Wednesady 14th.
Watch this space for more news.
Bye for now: BE THERE OR BE SQUARE
Just a quick heads up as I know that there are a few of you who like to stay in Spain for the Festive season and last year stayed in hotels on the coast.
We went to Torremolinos for a few days over Christmas and we were very pleasantly surprised ( bearing in mind that we haven't been there for about 15 years ). We stayed at the Rui Belplaya, Torremolinos on an all inclusive package ( hmmm , drinks as well ! ) and can highly recommend the hotel, we thought extremely good value for money hence we are returning again this year.
Anyway to cut a long story short, alpharooms.co.uk ( the only website that currently is taking bookings for Xmas at the Belplaya ) have now published prices for Xmas 2016, there has been a £2 per night increase but still a very good deal. We recommend booking a room with a sea view for just a few pounds more but well worth it. They also have single rooms where you are not charged a double occupancy which for my mother was a bonus. Deposit for bookings are only £1 at the moment.
Anyway just thought we would let you know incase people are thinking of staying on the coast, might see you there for a drink or two ? Might even be able to arrange a hash or at least a long walk , if anyone is interested ?
Here is the link:
ON ON ! Lindsey and Jim

In the download there are overview maps, gps tracks and a short description.
Our Grandmaster Miss Toned made a lovely gesture with the presentation of the Hash awards.
