Selecting a Run-Site

Choose a location which has a car park, with easy access, enough space for about 60 (or more) cars and is not on a narrow street and preferably not in a residential area. You will also need an open, and fairly flat, area very nearby for the children's games and tug-of-war.

Try and select a run-site which has some varied ground (hills and streams are always good fun), preferably with some jungle/wooded areas. The children get disheartened and take short-cuts on open ground.

Setting a Run

Ideally set two runs. The first (short) run should be about 30 to 35 minutes of easy walking. The other (long) run should be 40 to 45 minutes of fast walking/jogging. For the short run please remember parents may be carrying small children and so should be able to negotiate the trail fairly easily. Both runs can use the same trail and it is often easier just to add an extra loop for the long run. In both cases please do not place the children in any situation which may compromise their safety.

Please use flour and chalk as a marker to set the trail. On very wet days toilet or shredded paper is acceptable, but, please keep this to a minimum and have the sweepers gather the paper after all participants are through. We are environmentally friendly!

You should set 1 to 3 checks on the short run and at least 3 to 5 on the long run (short run checks can be included). Remember, the point of a check is to allow the rear of the pack to catch up with the front. There are two types of check:

T-check : shown by a large T on the ground and marks a dead-end. Runners have followed a false trail and must "check back" to find the correct trail.

Circle-check : shown by a large circle on the ground and instructs the runners to "look around" to pick up the trail again. Used when there is more than one or two possible routes ahead. Trail should resume no more than 100 metres from the circle....though it doesn't need to be obvious.

A check should not be so difficult that the children cannot break it. Adults may discreetly help to find the trail, however, it is customary to allow the children to "find" it and issue the traditional, and very loud, ON ON!


Arrange two sets of games to take place after the circle. One set for 6 year-olds and under and one set for older children. We suggest two games per age group. A bag of sweets/candies is generally adequate as give away prizes for the end of the games. The hares may distribute treats to each child after the games.

It is your responsibility to collect the HHH signs and rope from the preceding hares. Please do not rely on anyone else to do this for you.

Please advise the Hareline/webhash 24 weeks in advance of the details of both your run-site and meal choice so it gets into the newsletter.

It is the responsibility of the hares to clear trash from the run-site and ensure it is disposed of properly.... not left for someone else to look after. Large black plastic bags are always available; just ask if more are required.

Finally, relax, enjoy yourself and ON ON.
