Line Break - On-On Feet

I arrived with my passengers in tow. Drove down a narrow road which descended to an area I have never seen before. Saw the ocean on my right and what looked to me to be a sub-station of some sort on my left. At this time I was ready to run as I haven’t ran in a few weeks due to injury, So I was rearing to get into it. But apparently, the “getting into it” part was going to be difficult as parking was at a premium. But, I have a very small SUV(Suzuki Swift) so I wasn’t worried and one of my passengers (Harperman) scouted a parking spot fit for me.

This hash had quite a big turnout, the bar was setup in a good area. People were laughing and it was time to go! After the instructions were read it was “On On!!” The pack went down the hill….I was doing my pre-run preparations…..stretching….looking at the ladies as they passed by……heckling Doon about his slow running style……asking Taz where Ache……reminding Ache that I brought the rum for us to drink and letting Mahashma know that I am here to run. So I have now started my trot……”On Back!!!” Hmmmm……I guess I will run into the forest as I see some paper…..”On Back!!” With now a steupssss I proceeded to run back to the “facility” I am now striding getting into my “where is Harperman!!??” Mode…..”On Back!!” AGAIN!! We eh start no running yet and iz three X we find! Well now I looking for trail…..I ran the way we drove in to hear a faint “On On” in the opposite direction…..with fear of another X I just kept going a bit till it was confirmed we were on… the spot I parked!! Now the area was so narrow that we can only go down one at a time…..and because I went on a wild goose chase I was late. So I had to stand and wait for this procession to go down the narrow pathway! At this time I am sweating and waiting patiently saying in my mind….”Harperman and Doon done gone already, to catch them will be a task!” So I did what any hasher would do in this situation…..went to the bar and ordered a “STIFF” rum and coke! After all….if I am going to wait…..lemme do it in style! So in the 15th minute and two rum and cokes later I am now going down this hill saying to myself…..I will overtake where I can and catch Harperman and Dune! But I was caught basically behind the walkers it became a walk and talk session. Overtook some people….but it was a little slippery and muddy so hard running wasn’t an option as the trails were too narrow for me to really stretch my legs. After coming down the first hill I stretched past a few people and then came to a point where I was running alone, made one check, it was another X….steupsed to myself cause I knew I should have gone the other way, but I think I just wanted to run. Ran past the some people congregating awkwardly and asked, “Is this a beer stop, rum stop or a water stop!!??” Got no answer so I kept moving. A few more turns uphill I saw another group gathered. At this time I am assuming that this is a beer stop, a rum stop or some kind of water stop cause more people are gathered, but apparently they were catching their breaths. This would be a solid 30mins into the hash. At the top of the hill was…….and I still couldn’t believe it….the On In!!! Already!!! At this time I said to myself, “Harperman and Doon must be drinking beers already….I am late!!” Ran in…..and proceeded to rehydrate with an ice cold Stag! Then Shawna came in begging for a breath, which I couldn’t spare. But unfortunately, it was the beginnings of an asthma attack and she didn’t have an inhaler. I made announcements looking for an inhaler but no one had. This meant that we had to take her for either an inhaler or emergency assistance. It ended up she needed both, so I wasn’t present for down-downs, but happy to report that Shawna is well and will be present at the next hash with her inhaler!! I would like to nominate Shawna for Poofter at the next hash……for leaving home without an inhaler and making me miss Down-Downs! According to Allan…..I could have received a free beer!!!

Hash Lingo

Virgins take note of the meaning of these signs!!!

  1. While on the trail CALL “ON ON” when you see bits of shredded paper/flour! It helps those behind/possibly lost hashers.
  2. “O” – check for the correct trail!
  3. “X” – you’re on the wrong trail! Go back to the check point and start again.
  4. “ON PASS” – to pass someone on the trail.
  5. “ON BACK” – on the wrong trail, you may have reached an “X“….turn back to the check point “O“.
  6. “On OFF” – you’re off the correct trail.
  7. When you are almost in you would see: “ON IN” pointing to the correct direction.
  8. For those who can’t keep up with the ‘3F’s’ (FIT, FAST AND FURIOUS) pack then just go with the ‘3S’s’ (SMART, SLOW AND SAFE) Pack who just let them do all the work.

Journey Management

Approx drive time from Uriah Butler Intersection, Grand Bazaar: 2hr 30mins. Please exercise caution! Car-pooling is recommended. Designate a driver.

There’s road works along the CRH & usual traffic on EMR heading into Valencia junction, so allocate sufficient time in your journey plan.

Important: Please arrive on time so that all hashers leave as one pack. Late comers should refrain from beginning the run due to the significant risk posed by the Trinidad dense green forests to the lone individual. Also there is the added inconvenience of having to organize a search party for lost hashers. Take note!

Food/ On-On-On

Local food will be on sale at run site. Chicken/ Fish dinners. Home-made Ice-cream on sale also.


Remember the Hash Run is not a race. Have fun!. Enjoy the total experience – the village, people, environment, trail, down-downs and after activities.

On On to L’anse Noire!
