The ASH R*n 2016 ASHH

Date: Sunday June 12th 2016

Time: 1pm – 13:00

Location: San Agustín de Guadalix

GPS: 40.690758, -3.610082 OR 40°41’26.7″N 3°36’36.3″W

Directions by public transport:

As far as the Hare is aware…there should be a relative slew of 191 / 193 Buses out of the Plaza Castilla Station, with a Bus Stop located more or less adjacent to the Poligno Industrial…and a 100m walk back to the MH3 Car Park.

Some additional public transport information: 

Buses 191 and 193 both leave Plaza de Castilla on Sunday at 12:15 from dársenas 36/37 which are in Isla 3 on Nivel -1 and take 35-45 minutes.

The buses go through the pueblo and out the other side, over a bridge and then turn right at the roundabout at the start of the Poligono Industrial (Industrial Estate). The bus stop is almost immediately after the roundabout on the right. Get off there and walk back to the car park.

Driving directions:

A1 Burgos Hwy. and exit @ Km.36 (San Agustin de Guadalix Poligno Industrial).

3rd exit @ the Off-Ramp roundabout and crossover the A1.

The Rat R*n That Never Was ASHH

Run No.: 2170

Date: Sunday April 17th 2016

Time: 1pm – 13:00

Location: Rat access-friendly run site near Torrelaguna

GPS: 40.837429, -3.540774  OR 40°50’14.7″N 3°32’26.8″W

Note! Good enough for Government work…but you wouldn’t navigate Apollo 13.

Directions by public transport:

As usual, find somebody with wheels and buy them lunch, get them brahms, or, offer sexual favours.
In theory, there should be a whole slew of 197 Buses from Plaza Castilla to Torrelaguna, taking approx. 01hour 10mins.   From the Torrelaguna drop off point, find Calle San Sebastian which morphs into a dirt trail heading up the Arroyo Matachivos to the Car Park…approx.01Km.

Editor´s Note: The above are the hares´ directions. On doing research it appears that a 197 bus leaves Plaza de Castilla (from dársena 30) at 11:00 on Sunday and gets to Torrelaguna pueblo around 12:05. There are two stops in Torrelaguna. The first is at Calle Malacuera 1. The second is at Calle Soledad 2 near the Plaza Manuel María Martín. 

For the directions above you need to get off at the second stop. However, if you get off at the first stop and find Calle de la Cava you can head north(-ish) along it past Plaza de Montalban and join the M-131 (El Berrueco) which is the road that cars will be going up to get to the run site i.e. you will have more chance of getting a lift. 

Driving directions:

Exit Km.50 off the A1 Burgos Hwy ( N320 Torrelaguna / M608 Guadalix ).
Turn right at the off ramp roundabout ( N320 Torrelaguna ).
Travel approx. 07Kms to an iffy go right to turn left roundabout.
Crossover the N320 and enter Torrelaguna village.
Turn left at the T-Intersection.
Turn left at the almost immediate crossroads ( M131 El Berrueco ).
Travel under the mediaeval arch and travel on up the wibbly wobbly hill for approx.01Km.
Turn right…carefully…onto a car friendly dirt track…F.F.F.F.C.P.
