What is R.O.T.T.?

From an Idea conceived while walking the Cleveland Way, Goldfinger and Bedsores came up with the concept of R.O.T.T. - Really Over The Top hash trail, but still for Hashers - not a challenge event.

Hashing in the UK consists of two important elements, A well laid trial in interesting country, and Good beer in a good pub.

ROTT attempts, to achieve both of these objectives on a grand, if not Over The Top scale.

The trails are A to B to C to D, over hill country, giving a wide variety of landscapes, allowing the Hashers to enjoy our native countryside and take in some stunning views. At each stop they can then enjoy a pint or two of good beer and even some food. And Yes even outdoors we still serve Real Ale!

We tell you only where point A is, where you meet up on Friday Evening, and where you will be transported back to on Sunday afternoon. Everywhere else is on the trail.

The main Run starts early Saturday morning and finishes in the afternoon at point C, having stopped for lunch at point B. There is then a Sunday morning Run with a live hare, culminating in Lunch, before setting of home in time for work on Monday morning. Points A and C are pubs, with camping facilities near by, and sometime B & B for the more sophisticated.

We have a support team for logistics, and catering, so you need to carry nothing, and just follow the trail.

The event started in the 1990's and was held every 2 years until thwarted by a fuel strike and Foot and mouth earlier this century. Resurrected in 2009, as a last fling by Toed and Goldfinger, but it happened again in 2011 and 2013, so, as an event refuses to die.

To give a flavour there are maps showing where the 2009 trail went and also some Photo's. There are even some pictures from the last Century
