Our 950th run will be at Trattenbach, which is 10km south of Gloggnitz,
in the Semmering Area, which is about an hours drive,
The theme for the run will be the Mad Cow.
Join us in seeing how much of the local livestock we can drive mad!
We have booked the entire Hubertushof Gasthof, with 50 beds. There is also an adjoining Pension, if the demand is greater than 50. If that Pension is full, then we will get a further Gasthof and provide transport on Saturday night to and from that Gasthof. The main Gasthof has a restaurant/party room for 130 people, which should be sufficient. Allocation of people to the Gasthof or Pension will be according to booking order. The general plan for the weekend is:

Tobogganing: For anyone who gets up early on Saturday, there is an opportunity to go tobogganing in Sankt Corona before the run.

Note: This only runs in dry conditions - we will phone beforehand to make sure that the tobogganning is operating. Those interested could go at on Saturday, and finish tobogganning at 11.30 to be back in time for the Hash. Please don't be late for the run.

In the evening, we have the Mad Hasher Ball starting at There will be a buffet, with music, dancing etc. Please think about a skit you and your Hash can perform which fits the Mad Cow theme. Everyone is expected to wear something which makes them look like a Cow, preferably slightly mad. This should be easy for Hashers. There will also be a Tombola, so bring something a bit Mad to donate.
