Show Questions Only
Q What is ROTT?.
 A slightly or `Really` Over The Top A to B to C to D hash trail (i.e. it meanders for15-25 miles) run over a weekend. You will be told where A ( a good pub) is and need to get there on Friday Evening. Accommodation is basic camping, and there are Catering and Logistic backup teams, so you do not need food or backpacks. To find out where B,C and D are you must be on the run
Q Has this been done before
 Yes, we started in 1992 and followed every 2 years until thwarted by a fuel strike then foot and mouth. the fourth ROTT finally happened in 2009 and went back to the North York Moors. Previous ROTT trails have been on the North York Moors, Derbyshire and Shropshire.
Q Do I need to be Fit?
 Reasonably. This is a Hash NOT an Iron Man contest. As with all Hashes we have walkers and athletes. The Hares pride themselves on being able to keep a pack together even over this distance, with a wide range of abilities. We do have a logistics team if anyone gets into trouble.
Q How is the trail laid?
 A. Just like a normal CH3 run, complete with Checks, false trails, turn backs, Check backs and even short cuts, allowing you to thoroughly explore the country side while others catch up.
Q How far is point A from Cambridge?
 About 145 Miles. You should be able to drive there after work on Friday.
Q Can I get a lift?
 A Mini Bus has been booked from Cambridge.- If you want to be on it, please get an update code and tick the box to be on it
Q How much does it cost?.
 We don`t know. When you Register we ask for a
£20.00 deposit , (but you do need to Register first). After the event we add all the costs and divide by participants. Support crew do not pay the deposit , The Camping works out at £7.50pp/pn, but you will need money to pay for beer and food in the pubs in the evenings.
So far the organisers have paid out £596.50 for deposits, minibus etc, and we are committed for food and beer.

 A backup team of Hash caterers and Logistics will feed you and supply Beer when we are not in a Pub. Otherwise you will be able to purchase food in the pub.
Q Where is it
 The Run starts at Hulme End, Staffordshire (see where does it start?). Where it ends ????.
