Run No 1817 ~ Thursday 22nd October ~ Harrow-on-the-Hill

Hare : Roadkill

Important-Pre-registration is required for all participants in West London Runs during the current Covid emergency, if you plan to come on this, or any other run, you must register in advance using This link which will be open for each week’s run by the evening of the Tuesday before the run.

This week’s run will start from outside Harrow-on-the-Hill Station (Metropolitan and Chiltern Lines) HA1 1BB Map Link. Trains from Baker Street take only 20 minutes and 15 minutes from London Marylebone. Exit the station via the Lowlands Road exit LHS – do not take the exit towards the town centre and bus station RHS.

There will be no bag drop, run with what you bring and do not hang around waiting for a pack to form. Set off as soon as you turn up, anytime between 18.30 and 19.00 hours. Early starters should not mark through checks ahead of the main runners.

The hare will follow our former hash tradition and re-run the trail from 19.00 hours, marking through the checks for late comers and walkers.
A torch is not essential but would be useful towards the end of the run.

There will be a drink stop towards the end of the run so stay on trail and do not short cut. The hare’s able assistant will be at the drink stop location from 19.15 onwards.

If you want to go for a drink afterwards nearby under Tier 2 rules The Junction and The Royal Oak have outside tables. Please make your own arrangements in groups of not more than six. There is also the Moon on the Hill, The George, O’Neill’s and the Trinity Bar but they have no outside area so follow the solo drinking rules if you choose these locations.

Run Number 1816 – Thursday 15th October – Twickenham Station

This week’s run will start from outside Twickenham station, Map Link . As has become the “new normal” in these dystopian times, there will be no bag drop, run with what you bring and don’t hang around waiting for a pack to form, set off on trail as soon as you turn up, anytime between 18.30 hours and 19.30 hours. There will be a drink stop on trail and if you want to go for a beer after the run, in one of the many local pubs, then make your own arrangements to do so in groups of not more than six. The Hare has hinted that the drink stop might be a lot closer to the Thames than the station and has suggested that pubs in the vicinity of Church street, Twickenham, see this This Map Link, such as The Fox, the The Eel Pie and The Barmy Arms will be conveniently located at the end of the trail, the Hare has also suggested that a torch might be useful, for some sections of the trail.

The Hare is Minge and Tonic

Note: Pre registration is mandatory for all Hashers participating in West London’s runs during the current time. If you plan to come on this run you must register via This Link preferably before lunch time of the day before the run, so the Hare can assess numbers for the drink stop.

Run Number 1815 – Thursday 8th October – Southwark (A to B)

Hare : Stayover

“A” is the exit from Southwark Tube Station Map Link. Anyone not liking the tube can walk to Southwark tube from Waterloo in 3 mins station.

There will not be a bag drop, run with what you bring. Do not wait for the pack to congregate but set off when you turn up, any time between 18.30 and 19.30

“B” is The Rose pub 123 Snowsfields SE1 3ST Map link . 0207 403 0168 Pub Web Site

The Rose is close to London Bridge station and tube.

At the Rose there are 2 options –

Option 1 – book a table in advance for a group of 6 or less, by phone or on their web site

Option 2 – purchase a pint (or whatever) from whatever is on tap, in a plastic glass as a takeaway and drink it on the street outside the pub. There are a few little booths set within park benches right opposite – which punters utilise for beer drinking purposes. So it’s a nice place to drink outside if wrapped up warm. No mingling beyond 6.

If people prefer to book their group of 6 elsewhere, there is also the Horseshoe Inn Map Link and web site nearby . It is more into track and trace apps and table service etc.

The Rose was the first in the locality to open (using the takeaway concept) after lockdown, so has become a favourite. NB this is not the Rose and Crown. It’s the Rose.

It West London H3 require pre registration for all their runs at this time, so if you are coming you should register using by this link.

Please observe all anti-covid social distancing rules and avoid gathering in groups of more than six throughout the evening.

You could also use this to find a team of 6 to join together for a pub.

Cyclists can leave their bike at Richmond Station and get public transport (local train or 33 bus) to Strawberry Hill.
I will try to make some allowance for anyone who wants to cycle the trail (Eg: More On?) with some markings to avoid bits that are not easy to ride through.
You can contact me on 07454 117474 on the run if further assistance is required.

Run Number 1813 -Thursday 24 September – Hampstead

Hare: Castrato

This weeks run starts at Hampstead tube station (northern line), Hampstead High Street, NW3 1QG map link . Start from 19.00 to 19.30.

Pending weather and the ongoing CV19 rules the hare is hoping to provide a combined bag drop and DS near the start/end of the run, but be prepared to run with your stuff.
No congregating so please start as soon as you arrive.
Do not mark checks through.
If you would like to go to a pub after the run book a pub of your choice in ad hoc groups of 6 or less, suggest through a nominated group leader.

Pre-registration is required for this run, please register via this link
Please observe strict social distancing rules throughout by keeping at least two metres apart.

The hare says;
“Please apply common sense and think about how we are seen by others.
Obviously if you are ill don’t turn up.
Keep at least two metres apart from each other and especially from the public when on trail.
Avoid clustering at choke points like checks and bag drops.
Bring a torch because it’s really difficult to run in the dark unless you’re close to someone with light.

STOP PRESS! The Hare has just reported that Hampstead Tube station will close at 7 P.M. There will therefore be a supplementary trail from Hampstead Heath overground. The bag drop will be about quarter of a mile from both stations. Hampstead Heath is probably more convenient from those coming from the direction of Richmond as both are on the Silverlink Line. From Belsize park underground station it is around six minutes walk to both Hampstead tube and Hampstead Heath overground stations. See map link

Run Number 1808-Thursday 20 August 2020

South Kenton (Bakerloo Line and London Overground)

The pub will be the Windermere. There will be no “P” trail but as the pub is next to the station and visible from the platform. For those coming from the Richmond clique vicinity there is an easy route via Willesden Junction with trains running every seven to fifteen minutes. 

The landlord will let hashers leave their bags at the pub. The landlord has agreed that the Hare will be the contact point for NHS track and trace purposes and pre-registration is required, see below for the registration link. On arrival hashers should tell the staff member who will greet them at the door they are from the hash and they will direct them to the function room which is being opened especially for the WLH3. The room is close to the front door and bar and is where hashers can leave bags safely. After leaving bags hashers should start the run or meet in small numbers outside. Start running any time between 1900 hours and 19.30 hours.

The pub will provide table service for drinks and encouraging as many people as possible to use the large beer garden though there are also tables available inside if the weather is cold or inclement. There will be real ale on draught. 

There will also be a drink stop close to the pub so we don’t have hot sweaty, heavy breathing hashers returning directly to the pub. The landlord can’t offer the usual food buffet because of Covid but he may (subject to confirmation nearer the time) offer a burger each if we can social distance the usual hash food grab. The Hare is Wacker.

Registration for this run is now open, please Click Here to register. The pub will do burgers after the run, if you want a vegetarian burger please indicate this in the comments box of the registration form.
