Run 2055 Run: 2055 Date:13/03/2017 Location: Main Beach Hare: Sweat Hog Hashers:27 A St Patrick's Day pre-lube was the theme of this event. Even though there was no hash when St Patrick was around for his 106 years from 0387 to 17 March 0493, he probably would have made a great RA, being a saint and reptile remover.
