Granny Lays Trail, No Wait She IS THE TRAIL –

Fellow Wankers, even for Hashers this news has got to be wierd.

Running club gran’s ashes to provide trail for jogging route


Fun-loving gran Stevie Wood’s family scattered her ashes – to provide the trail for a five-mile jog.

Dozens of Hardy Hash House Harriers, who describe themselves as “a drinking club with a running problem”, normally follow a line of flour across the countryside.

But when members’ friend Stevie – real name Gladys – died aged 84 in Weymouth, Dorset, relatives decided that mixing in her remains would be a fitting send-off.

Son-in-law Geoff Kirby, 68, is one of the social set who meet every Sunday as part of an international network of nearly 2,000 groups of Hash House Harriers.

They were founded in the 30s by English expats in Malaysia who liked to run off weekend hangovers.

And Geoff said: “Stevie would have approved fully. She was always the last to leave a party.”

Daughter Sandy, 58, added: “We suggested the Stevie Wood Memorial Hash as mum loved Dorset even though she was a Geordie by birth. She was simply great fun.”
