Hello again Pan Philippine Nash Hashers,
We now have over 120 hashers signed up for this prestigious event and the rate of sign-ups is increasing rapidly as we approach the end of the year. We estimate that the final number will be around 200. Our policy for now is ‘the more the merrier’ so please encourage your friends to sign up too before the rate increases on 31 December and we have to commit to a final number for the catering contracts.
All of the venues associated with the event have now been finalized and are as follows:
Wed. Thur. Fri. 18/19/20 March
Brass Knob bar/restaurant, A.C.
Registration, information & goody bags
Thur. 19 March
Stotsenberg hotel, Clark Air Base
Fri. 20 March
Josefaville 2 Community Center* A.C.
Sat. 21 March
Clark Air Base*
On home for recovery run/walk brunch
*Both of these events will be catered out by Brettos restaurant & deli, Angeles.
A detailed timetable for these events will be issued a bit nearer the date.
Local hashers will be familiar with both the Stotsenberg hotel and Brettos restaurant & deli. The Stotsenberg is a large, quality hotel on the Base and we have negotiated a good deal with them to provide a buffet dinner for us on the Thursday evening. They have allocated us a large grassy area at the rear of the hotel which includes an obstacle course for those who have any energy left after the runs.
Brettos have been selected as the outside caterers for the Friday evening and Saturday lunchtime on-homes. They have an excellent reputation as a high-class deli and provided us with a good range of menus from which we have selected the food for these two days. Friday evening will be a BBQ meal by the pool in Josefaville 2 sub-div. community center and Saturday brunch will be from a selection of breakfast menus catered out at the Centennial Park on Base.
Transport will be available at regular intervals to take hashers back into the center of Angeles.
A lot of thought and effort has gone into the selection of items for the goody bags and these are now in production with a quality manufacturer in Dagupan, northern Luzon.
The trails for the Thursday runs will be in the hills around Malasa, a small village about 25 km north-west of Angeles and a satellite of barrio DapDap. There will be a ball-breaker run of around 20 km and then medium and short trails that will feed onto the ball-breaker trail, so that they all finish at the same point.
The Friday trails will be in the hills around Porac, a small town around 20 km south-west of Angeles. There will be long, medium and short trails which will all finish at the same location so that there can be a joint circle, as with Thursday’s run.
The recovery run/walk on Saturday morning will be on Base near the Parade Ground and will finish in Centennial Park where Brettos will be catering the brunch.
Jeepneys will be the main form of personnel transport for the event and Subic Bay H3 have kindly offered the use of their flat-bed truck and large cool boxes for transportation of beverages.
Red Dress Run
At the time of writing we already have 53 hashers signed up for the Red Dress Run, so we’ll probably end up with more than 80. No lesser hasher than Proposition has kindly volunteered to lead this event and I understand he can’t wait to show off his new 8”high-heel boots. We are now approaching a number of local bar owners seeking sponsorship for the two charities we are supporting with the proceeds of the run.
First, a correction to our last update, instead of the men-only, Wolf Pack run that was planned for the evening of Wednesday 18 March, Wild Wolf/Proposition is now arranging a 4-day hash bash in Puerto Galera the week after the Pan Philippines Nash Hash 2015. Full details may be found here: www.hash2015.com
For the hike to the top of Mount Arayat on Wednesday 18 March, Jeepneys will leave Angeles at 10 00 hrs. The departure location will be advised later. It takes about 45 minutes to get to the start point of the hike and about 2 hours to hike to the top. This is a fairly onerous hike and participants need to be reasonably fit.
On Sunday 22 March Angeles City Hash will be doing their normal run, start time 2:30 PM from Margarita Station, and on Monday 23 March Subic Bay Hash will be doing theirs, see here for info. http://subicbayhash.homestead.com/
A further update with a more detailed program will follow in the next couple of months. The details will also appear on the ACH3 website, which can be found here: http://angeles-hash.com/under the “2015 Pan Philippines Nash Hash” banner. Meanwhile encourage your friends to sign up before it’s too late to participate in this magnificent event!

Pure wilderness: Running in the land of Ghengis Khan
- The registration period for the 17th Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset 42km and 100km trail run, taking place on 5th August 2015, starts on 1 October 2014.
- Adventure seeking runners can now register for this unique experience on www.ms2s.org.
- Runners from no less than 13 countries participated in 2014; new race record set for 42km distance.
Mongolia (24 September 2014) – Wild horses, wild yaks and seas of wildflowers: The Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset 42km and 100km ultra marathon truly offers pure wilderness to the participants. “It is one of the most remote races worldwide. The untouched nature in the Hovsgol National Park is the main reason why many of our runners refer to the Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset as the most beautiful 100km run on the planet”, says race director Nicolas Musy. The course in the National Park in Northern Mongolia follows lake-side single tracks and horse trails. It includes steep hills, windblown lowlands, craggy mountains, marshy forests and spectacular views over mighty Lake Hovsgol and all the way to the Siberian Mountains in the far North.
The registration period for next year’s race starts on 1 October 2014. Runners with an appetite for a special adventure can now secure early bird rates for the race package online on www.ms2s.org. “This is not a one-day event. We offer a week full of discovery and adventure”, explains Musy. Participants gather in a picturesque camp at the lakeshore, sleep in traditional Mongolian yurts and get in touch with local nomads and their culture. In the days before and following the race, runners can enjoy a variety of leisure activities: horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, hiking, or mountain biking.
2014: New record for 42km
Runners from 13 countries gathered at the shores of Lake Hovsgol in August 2014 for the 16th edition of this spectacular race. French runner Alex Balson, who lives in Northern Mongolia and is familiar with the course, set a new record time for the 42km in 3:48 hours. An impressive time, especially considering the difficulty of the terrain and the accumulated elevation gain/loss of 2,255 meters in the marathon distance. For the 100km ultra distance, the accumulated elevation gain/loss is no less than 3,365 meters. Sean Smith from Australia managed to come in first in 13:37 hours. Especially remarkable was the breathtaking finish in the veteran category, where 69-year old Marc Progin from Switzerland and Hans Andersen from Denmark sprinted head-to-head through the finish line and shared the first place in 14:52 hours. The fastest female on 42km was Rose Kennedy from the United States, while her compatriot Rhonda Stricklett won the 100km ultra distance in strong 14:25 hours.
Preserving the National Park
The Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset is organised on a non-profit basis. All proceeds are used to keep Hovsgol National Park pristine and clean as well as to support the culture of the local nomads via the “ecoLeap foundation” registered in Geneva, Switzerland. “We want to keep this pristine mountain area as beautiful as it is now. That is why we fund a litter control project and its ongoing operation including hiring park rangers, providing eco-friendly garbage bags and raising awareness nation-wide through TV ads and education of local children and families”, explains race director Nicolas Musy. The ecoLeap foundation also supports the local culture, adds Musy: “It is not only the pristine nature that makes this part of the world so special. It is also the unique culture of the nomads and their way of life. The nomads should be proud of their abilities and culture.”

Registrations - executive decision time. NO MORE TRANSFERS. If you cannot come to the event then we will refund your registration fee using PayPal. We know that this move may be unpopular but the reason for this is simple; the event is oversubscribed and there have been people on the waiting list for over six months. It is only fair that we give those people a chance to come. So, registrations are no longer transferable to others. We will refund until one month before the event. If anyone has a problem with this policy, please click here to go to our customer service department.
