Hares – Smart Arse and Kebab
Registration is required for all participants in West London runs during the current pandemic. If you plan to come on this run please register ASAP by using This Link.
This week’s run will start from The Prince of Wales Townhouse, 73 Dalling Road, Hammersmith, W6 0JD map link. The nearest underground station is Ravenscourt Park and a ‘p-trail’ will be marked from this station to help you find the pub.
The usual anti-Covid protocols will apply, no bag drop, run with what you bring and a staggered start in groups of up to six. The trail of 9 km will have two options for short cutting, to suit all tastes. The hares have a map to illustrate this and will meet you at the start of the trail. Walkers leave from 18.30 hours, runners should start by 19.00. There will be a beer stop towards the end of the trail and tables are booked at the pub from 20.00 until 22.00, seating arrangements will be decided by the Hares when the number of attendees is known.
The pub is a member of The Big Smoke group and has a large number of beers on tap. Order your drinks by scanning the QR code at the bottom of the food menu. The ‘collect a stamp’ system is not running at present but they will honour a free beer for completed cards, from The Express Tavern, and any others in the group, if you have one. Also, Thursday night is Steak Night, if any of you are interested. You will need the NHS Covid app to check in to the venue, or you can do this manually as you enter.
Pyles and Hands On are in a Brandenburg Christmas concert online on 16th and 17th December via Zoom there are concerts at 2pm and 5.30 on the 16th and 2pm and 7.30 on the 17th. They will bee singing Berlioz The Shepherds Farewell, and one or two other pieces as well as carols for choir and audience.
The pre-recorded musical content will include familiar audience carols singing along with the Brandenburg Camino Choir as well as Christmas-related music and a few more unusual carol settings by the professional choir of St Bartholomew the Great. Instrumental support will include the organ, piano, harp and trumpet. The programme will be interspersed with seasonal readings.
Delivery will be via Zoom. (no technical knowledge required – just click on the link supplied).
A pdf programme will be supplied to be printed at home together with tips to enhance the quality of audio delivery in the home.
In the interval concert-goers can come off mute, mingle, drink a mulled wine (recipe supplied) and nibble a mince pie. This will take place in small breakout rooms, each hosted by a member of the Brandenburg Team to create a genuine social event.

Advance registration is mandatory for all participants in West London Runs during the current Covid emergency, if you plan to come on this run please register using This Link. The hare has requested that you register as early as possible so that she can gauge numbers for drink stops.
The trail for this week’s run will start from Richmond Gate of Richmond Park map link and the run will end at the same location. Richmond Gate is around 20 minutes walk from Richmond station and can also be reached by taking the 371 bus from outside the station and disembarking at The American University on Queens road.
The following GM’s instructions for all runs under Tier 2 restrictions will apply:-The start time for the run is 6.30 pm to 7pm from the gate, however, faster runners should leave closer to 7pm. If you have a group ready to leave just before 7pm please wait a few minutes for any late comers so they do not need to run on their own. DO NOT start before 6.30pm as the trail won’t be ready and the drink stops will not be operational. Hashers leaving the start point after 6.50pm are requested to start marking through the checks, which will all be in flour this week, so no chalk needed, but please consider bringing some to future runs.
The Hare is Casting Slouch
This will be our Halloween Trick or Treat run and the Hare says that it will be completely in Richmond Park so will be spooky, scary and dark, a torch will be essential and the Hare suggests Hashers run in groups. Fancy dress is encouraged for all participants, as well as saying “trick-or-treat” to receive their provisions. She has also promised that the run will be short and and sociable, please observe social distancing and the Rule of Six at drink stops. There are a few pubs with gardens near Richmond Gate, where groups of up to six can meet outdoors after the run: The Lass of Richmond Hill and The Marlborough are at the top of the hill, and of course the ever hash friendly Dukes Head is in the Vineyard, a bit nearer to the station.
