Other Details: It is Halloween, but not only that if you look up in the sky at night you see that its another full moon. You know what that means, another Full mOOn H3 trail!! This month’s Full mOOn trail is hosted by Hangover Hash House Harriers. The year 2020 has been so lucky so far, so let’s keep that luck going. Details below: This is the second Full mOOn for October, which makes it one of the rare blue moons. Even more rare is that there are 13 full mOOn’s this year, and you know 13 is such a lucky number. There are hills, rocks, hills, roots, hills, beautiful fall colors, and did we mention there might be some hills? Bring yourself to the trail, but leave your soul behind.. or perhaps one of those cute miniature pumpkins which the hares ask you to leave in random spots on trail, perhaps with a carving made into it.
The hares also recommend everyone bring a face mask on trail, there are several spots where you’d be expected to cross path with others, and its halloween for after all.
