Hare Guide

Anyone Can Hare! Everyone Should Hare! But, if you are a virgin, find a nice experienced hare to help.
Hare Responsibilities

• Find a location, plan and set the run. CPH3 usually sets the day before, although “morning of” is possible. Live sets are also possible, but please, do not attempt this without adult supervision.
• Communicate the location of the start and finish to the bus driver and the beer van.
• Arrange the bash to follow the Down Downs.
• It is ultimately the responsibility of the Hares to make sure all Hashers make it back to the bus and to see that any lost or injured Hashers are rescued.
• 寻找一个地点并计划和设置路线。兔子通常应在hash的前一天设置路线,虽然早上也行,现场设置也可以,但是请不要试图在没有侦察前设置路线。
• 与大巴司机和负责送啤酒的师傅沟通出发地点和结束地点。
• 安排一个宽阔的场地作活动。
• 最终负责所有的hashers安全地回到大巴车上,并帮助那些走失或受伤的hashers。

Hare Rules and Markings

• We mark with flour or chalk, but in rainy weather, shredded paper may be a good choice.
• Blobs of flower or paper should be big enough to be easily seen. They don’t have to be on the ground, but can be on a wall or in a tree as long as they are conspicuous from some point on the trail.
• Chalk marks should be a line at least 30 cm long (if you don’t know how long this is, ask the GM to show you his). No arrowhead needed, but if used, use consistently. White chalk or yellow chalk only (one or the other please).
• Chalk marks can be on the pavement itself, on the curb, on a wall or on a pole or tree. On a pole or tree, make a vertical line visible to approaching runners or at least visible once abreast of the pole.
• Mark turns. With flower or paper, simply make an obvious curve or place a few blobs in an obvious way. With chalk, can use a double line to form an “elbow” pointing in the direction of the turn.
• On-On! marks should be frequent enough to leave no doubt as to direction. On a clearly defined trail without alternatives, marks should be no more than 50 meters apart. In open fields or in forest where the route is not obvious, marks should be closer – on really unclear terrain, (high grass, dense scrub, unusually rugged ground) a runner should be able to see the next mark from the previous one.
• Checks: A check is a circle, at least 30 cm in diameter (if you don’t know how long that is…) with an X (cross) in the middle. With flour, a full circle made around the bottom of a post, a small tree or even a rock works very well.
• After setting a check, Hares should begin marking within 100 meters of the check.
• Three marks out of the check is on trail! Although the first mark may be as far as 100 meters from the check, the second and third marks should follow the 50 meter or closer rule.
• After a check, you can put as many false trails as you like (in addition to the true trail) simply by going out two marks (100 meters, then 50). Only the true trail will go further than two marks. Hashers all know “three marks and you’re on!. Some hares choose to write “FT” (as in False Trail), but if you can’t find the third check, it is by definition a false trail.
• Hares should/may announce any special conditions or alternate markings at the beginning of the run.
• 我们用面粉或粉笔作记号,但在下雨天,碎纸片也是个不错的选择。
• 面粉和碎纸片必须足够大的容易看见。它们不必都标记在地上,墙上或树上只要足够引人注目就行.
• 粉笔画的箭头应至少30厘米(如果你不知道多长才行,让GM展示给你看)。请在设置中一直用同一颜色的粉笔。
• 粉笔标记可以作在人行道上,路边,墙上,电线杆或树上。当作在电线杆或树上时,请垂直标记接近跑步者或至少能看见一边。
• 作圆圈。用面粉或碎纸片只需圈出简单的曲线。用粉笔可以用两条线向一个方向转动就行。
• ON-ON(即正确路线)的标记应足够多以确保跑步者对前进方向没有疑问。在无岔道的线路上标志不应超过50米远。在空旷的田野间或树林中,当路线不明了时,标志应更近一些。在实在不清楚的地形(如在浓密的杂草、茂密的矮树或崎岖不平的地面)跑步者应该能从前一个标志看到后一个标志。
• 检查的标志是一个直径不小于30厘米的圆圈中间是一把叉(X)。用面粉在路边、树上或岩石上标记都行。
• 在设置完检查的标志后,兔子应开始在100米内作标记。
• 3个标志(on-on)才意味是正确的路线。虽然第一个标志可以有100米远,但第二个和第三个标志应在50米内。
• 设置完检查标志后,你也可以设置尽可能多的错误路线(除了真正的正确路线外)。只需简单的作两个标志(第一个100米内,第二个50米内),只有正确的路线才能超过两个标志。跑步者都知道3个以上的标志才意味者正确路线。有些兔子会选择写FT(即错误路线),但是如果你找不到第三个标志,即错误路线。
• 兔子应该宣布任何特殊情况或标志形状在开跑前。

Hare Tips

• It takes time to devise a good trail, often several visits to the area. The more time in preparation, the better you will make the run. Once you’ve laid out your route, run it and time it if possible. Better to find out that you are way too long or way too short before you do it with 30 of your best friends who may not be amused at Down Down time.
• A good trail takes care. It should be scenic and pleasant for both runners and walkers. It should be designed – here is where the checks come in – to bring the entire group, fast runners, slow runners and walkers, to the finish reasonably close together.
• Keep that purpose in mind when planning checks. They should be strategically placed to slow the Front Running Bastards down, or rather let them run in all directions, while the others start to catch up. Many checks bunched close together or long easy-to-run stretches with no checks don’t serve this purpose.
• A separate Runners Trail and Walkers/Wankers Trail is always to be preferred if Hares can be found. Separate trails can be formed by building in shortcuts for walkers/adding loops for runners.
• Terrain, weather and season can affect the length of the run, but somewhere between 6 and 9k is generally suitable.
• Walkers/Wankers Trail, especially on longer runs, should not be much greater than 60% of the runners trail.
• The end point must be suitable for the Down Downs. Since we drink beer, a perfect start and end point would be at or near a facility with toilets – a temple, a school, a community or cultural center, etc. A good row of trees or a hedge line works if necessary.
• Remember that the bus and the beer wagon must be able to get to both the start and the end point, or at least very close to both.
• The seasons: In winter it gets dark early. Runs should be set closer in to town and should be short enough to leave plenty of daylight for the circle. In summer, we can go as far as an hour’s bus ride out.
• Remember that is someone’s livelihood out in the field. Be aware of the crops as you set your trail, and remind runners to take care before the run.
• Carry enough flour/shreddie/chalk when setting trail. Not much is worse than running out of supplies far from the “On In”.
• 常常需花费一定的时间来设置一天好的路线,应前往该地区侦察多次。有更多的时间来准备,那么你设置的路线就越好。一旦你开始设置路线后最好计算跑步或漫步所需花的时间。
• 一条好的路线应在沿途有美丽的风景对于跑步者或漫步者来说。路线设计应使整个团队包括快跑者、慢跑者和漫步者尽量在同一时间内完成。
• 当设置检查标志时应记住:这些标志应然前面的快跑者慢下来或让他们向各个方向奔跑以保证后面的跑步者赶上。许多的检查标志靠的太近或太远但可以一直跑下去将达不到我们跑步的目的。
• 对跑步者或漫步者分开设置路线,或让漫步者抄捷径或让跑步者绕圈子。
• 地形,天气和季节都会影响跑步的长度。但是路线设置通常在6公里至9公里之间。
• 漫步者的路线,尤其是在一条很长的路线是应保证不大于跑步者距离的60﹪。
• 终点应适宜活动。因为我们会喝很多的啤酒,所以一个完美的起点和终点应靠近某个设施包括厕所。可以是寺庙、学校、社区或文化中心等等。如果有必要一排树木或篱笆也行。
• 记住大巴和啤酒货车应能到达起点和终点或者至少十分靠近。
• 在冬天黑的早,跑步地点应更靠近成都且在太阳落山前有足够时间活动。在夏天,我们可以前往一小时以内大巴可到达的地方。
• 记住如果在田野里有某人的菜地,设置路线时应注意那些蔬菜并在开跑前提醒跑步者。
• 设置路线时带上足够的面粉、碎纸片或粉笔。
