Making a Hash of it!
This past weekend witnessed a considerable clutch of Harborough AC runners find a more novel way of tackling the post-Christmas, post-New Year hangover – over the notably challenging 10km course of the 2011 Huncote Hash! The race prides itself on offering a distinctly unique, cross-terrain event that tests sanity, senses and ability in equal measure; even more so on an inclement, grey January morning.
Boasting competitors donned in quintessential athletics kit, and fancy dress in equal numbers, ‘The Hash’ – as it is affectionately known – is renowned for the spirit generated amongst the runners, and this year’s race proved no different; and also yielded a successful outcome for the dozen Harborough AC members who took to its slopes. First across the line for the Club – and in ninth place overall, from a field of 253 – was Ady King, in a highly competitive time of 43:46. He was followed, just a little over two minutes later, by Adam Brooks (in 19th position, and with a time of 46:04), and Matt Driver (20th, in 46:30). Karen Brooks was the first HAC woman, in 87th overall, in 55:12.
