Run 2088 - Oktoberfukup
A decidedly old school approach from this week's hare. Run start location sent via the world wide web, from a device capable of receiving coordinates bounced from geostationary satellites; a digital photograph of an actual map!
Next week, in a bid to regress the hash yet further in time, we'll be sending start point coordinates using Morse Code and send run notices via carrier pigeon. Expect to see only Dram and Geriatric at that one...

Hare's Comments: "Start where the sinister scissor blade points"
Webshite's Comments: I think we're all well aware that there's some seriously weird shit going on in Hong Kong, and it just gets weirder the nearer you get to the border. Golden Balls and Catch of the Day have clearly drunk too much of the local river water, because not only has Catch of the Day mysteriously vanished, along with the promise of Oktoberfest, but Golden Balls will set a run whilst simultaneously doing buckets! Bizarre!
