Walk­ing and run­ning of­fer nu­mer­ous ben­e­fits, rang­ing from in­creased phys­i­cal fit­ness to an en­hanced sense of well- be­ing. Ex­am­in­ing some of the pos­i­tive re­sults as­so­ci­ated with both ex­er­cises can help you de­ter­mine which ex­er­cise makes sense for your life­style.

Are you the type of per­son that’s not mo­ti­vated to train alone? Want­ing to find a walk­ing or run­ning col­lec­tive? Toko­roa Hash House Har­ri­ers could be just what you’re look­ing for! What to bring: You will need to have good walk­ing or run­ning shoes.

It is prefer­able for the kids to have soft shoes on. Trails can be pram friendly as well. Trail Types:

There is al­ways a shorter, eas­ier walk­ing trail, while the same trail is used for the run­ners but de­vi­ates in ex­tra loops.

But as al­ways, all trails are a mys­tery prior to each meet.

There are breaks or checks in the trail to search and de­fine what are false trails and which is the on-on!

You may be ask­ing what on-on is? Head along and find out.

The Toko­roa HHH use a lot of al­ley-ways and cross as many in town parks, re­serves and green belts as they can. The club some­times gets per­mis­sion to use a farmer’s prop­erty and hence there is the oc­ca­sional hill with a view. The trail does de­vi­ate quite of­ten from where you think it should go. The trail set­ter is the hare and he or she mod­er­ates the groups at the checks to en­sure no one is left be­hind. The Hare has a lot of fun help­ing bring some­one who thought they were smart, back onto the trail with ev­ery­one else!

Tonight the club is meet­ing at The Trees Tav­ern and head­ing through lovely coun­try views. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion con­tact Graeme Suther­land on 027-8438-573 or check out Toko­roa Hash House Har­ri­ers on Face­book for the up­dates. Happy walk­ing/run­ning South Waikato.
