Bouboulina holds onto her hat

Extremely windy so we had to park & shelter behind the rocks.

Equal numbers of runners ( Mountain Goat, Stress Cow & Mad Dog)
& walkers ( Bouboulina, Doggie Style & Clitoria):


One more quick photo before we set off.

Explanation....The following photos were taken while setting the trail the previous day.
The weather was sunny and not too cold (15 degC).
Sunday was not a day to be taking photos on the run unless one had a ruggedized, underwater camera

This way to the start of the run

>>>>>> Panoramic view : A slip road leading off from the mountain road


>>>>>>> Panoramic view of the great view we would have had if we could have parked where should have parked...... (huh?)


At the first check.
The sign for the church of Αγιοι Ασωματοι (Agii Asomati - both words plural)
... meaning The Incorporeal Saints (or Saints Without Bodies) (So no problem dieting!)


>>>>> Panoramic view - Climbing up a dry river bed - on the trail


Warning! Do not sit under this rock!


Climbing up the (almost) dry river bed


The spring at the ancient little church of Agii Asomati built up on the mountainside


View of the church from just above the spring


Another view of the church with the rooms for shelter in the foreground


Views inside the church. Candles are available for lighting here at no charge.

Where else in the world could you have an unattended church open to the public & nothing stolen?


View towards the entrance door



Remains of frescos can be seen on these old walls




>>>>> Panoramic view: Leaving the church and continuing the run


Soil erosion on the road leading to the church

The loss of the pine trees and undergrowth in the forest fire now allows rainwater
to gush down the mountainside and rip-away the soil.


Don't try driving up this road!


Just a matter of time before this piece of road disappears down the mountainside


>>>>> One final Panoramic on the mountain road back from the church to the hasher's cars

The white house In the foreground belongs to Doggie Style's godmother & used to be surrounded
by pine trees before the forest fire. By some miracle the house was almost untouched except for melted window shutters.

By now it was not only cold & windy but pouring with rain.
The harriettes sensibly sat in MD's car with the heater running
until the last runners MD & MG arrived.
This was going to be a fast circle. No time for hash tankards.

The hare's (& GM's) DIO


A quick down-down


Mountain Goat's DIO for watering the trail (amazing he didn't get a chilly willy)

Notice the wind has caught Bouboulina's umbrella




Mountain Goat


Cheers! from the hashers
