21 entries, 20 made it to the start line in the Blue Ball in Grantchester, the finish line of the St Radegund on Kings Street. Adorned with a luminous running number and a list of ten pubs in travelling salesman order each with a half pint awaiting them the competitors set off.
- The Blue Ball
- The Green Man
- The Red Bull
- The Mill
- The Pickerel
- The Maypole
- The Haymakers
- The Hopbine
- The Champion of the Thames
- The St Radegund
Two hashers took that alternative longer route, travelling straight from The Mill to the Haymakers, coming back via the Pickerel/Maypole. Polygobbler – the fastest woman and therefore overall winner travelled straight from the Pickerel to the Haymakers and back via the Maypole. Timing to the nearest half minute by Crabbo.

An honourable mention goes to Erica who cruised into the finish looking like she’d had a lovely jog and could do with a nice refreshing pint. Beer Gnome set a new personal worst on the final half pint before lying on the ground wishing he could do the much easier Spartan Race again. The male winner – Jack – rated it as much harder than the Chunder Mile. Cum for Lunch had every half pint out of old running shoes that had been auctioned off in aid of the Childrens society. She’s disqualified from the competition due to wearing most of the beer, but gets to keep the scarf.

Master of Vice departed from the traditional beer stop plying us all with Pimms, Strawberries and cream. Congratulations on his three score and ten.

||Mufti reports that hashers left the following cheek prints at the beer stop. Anyone who can explain why the hasher on the right was sitting backwards may win a pint.

||The annual river run is from Grantchester to Cambridge
(or vice versa, depending on the oddity of the year), with half-pint
beer stops at 10 pubs along the way. Er, leakage of any sort is
This year the race saw a star performance from Gosia, who proved
to have not only the speed but the drinking ability to fend off
her male competitors. Never has the circle chant of “beaten
by a woman” been so richly deserved.
Admittedly, her navigational system did break down after the
race and her route home that night was somewhat unconventional.
But that’s another story…
|Incidentally, there is of course a choice as to whether
to race as fast as possible, or to take a more leisurely approach
and savour the beer on offer. The photos above are of the first
four home, the ones below took rather longer. As for who is having
the most fun, judge for yourselves.

|Ah, what an impressive collection of running and drinking
Here are the stats for the Cantabrigensis Hash House Harriers:
Number of runners: 66
Number of teams: :11
Number of teams in the top 7 who finished in less than an hour:
Number of teams in the top 25 out of 363: Four
Money raised and handed over to Hewitsons: £1485
Money donated to charity as a result: Nil. Moral: never trust
a lawyer with your money (apart from Abi, of course).
||On the left, we have the fastest mixed team, a.k.a the Cantab
Whippets. Unfortunately they didn’t actually win, as Hewitsons decided
at the last minute that having a fair mix of females and males wasn’t
a requirement for a mixed team (Duh?)
On the right, we have the speedy old gits of the Cantab Hash Old
Masters team. They didn’t win either, for the simple reason that
another team of even speedier old gits did.
||And so it was left to the senior ladies to show the club’s running
prowess and claim the “fastest old biddies” prize.
Well done to the team of Kate (Capt), Alison, Josie, Lemons, Cecile,
||Two more of our esteemed entrants:
On the left, “Cantab Hash The Baron’s Wieners”
On the right, “Cantab Hash Trailblazers”

||Well, there was all this beer left over from Grunty Fen…
Amazing how many people you can fit into a garden. Scared the crap
out of the cat, though.
