MARKING A HASH RUN
A Hash Run should normally be A to A. Remember not everyone comes on the bus and some arrive late. A to B Runs should be avoided unless it has a special feature (eg runs that start at Lamma Pier and then end up on a Junk)
The intention is that the Hash runs together, not to lose people! The purpose of the marks apart from indicating the direction of the run is keep the pack together. The checks are not meant to lose/confuse the Hash. Also try to anticipate what may look simple and obvious in daylight may become complex or even dangerous in darkness.
Use plenty of flour and chalk and at regular intervals.
Marks are made in flour, chalk or toilet paper tied to trees (esp if rain is expected). Try to make regular and clearly visible marks to avoid anyone getting lost. Don’t forget it’s a run not a game!
