Club member, Anji Close, introduces us to the world of Aqua Running.

Hashing in Vietnam!!

Deka and I have just returned from our trip to Vietnam. We were hoping to run out there but having looked on You Tube before we went, there are almost 3 million motorbikes in Hanoi, the capital, and there are few traffic lights or road lanes. Walking across the road would prove difficult, never mind running. Anyway a bit more research online I came across the Hanoi Hash House Harriers.

The 12 Dave’s Of Christmas #8 – Dave Rowe

I started running when I was at school doing x- country and 1500m, as I got older the distances became shorter until I was running no further than 400m. When I was old enough to enter public houses the running stopped, I did do 5 GNR in my late teens/early twenties with little or no training….

The 12 Dave’s Of Christmas #7 – Dave Appleby

Unlike some other Dave’s my running history goes back quite a few years. I was one of those who were bitten by the first Great North Run Bug back in 1981. I was 17 and it was something new and a bit different. The running boom was just beginning to gather a bit of momentum and we were going to have a massive race in our own back yard and I thought I could be part of it.
