Madrid HHH

The “ASH has a Birth Certificate!!” R*n ASHH

Run No.: 2135

Date: Sunday 15th November 2015
Time: 1pm – 13:00
Location: Olmeda de las Fuentes
Directions by public transport:
-Recommended to bribe wheels with offers of unlimited drink, or sexual favours, or both.
-261 Bus from Avenida de America arrives in the village, Olmeda de las Fuentes, but the Sunday timings
are very iffy? (Note from the Editor: In fact, the only 261 bus gets there at 10:40am which is a tad early!)
– However (the Editor continues) if you wanted to you could get the 321 bus which goes from Ctra. Loeches/Dr. Escribano Orti around 11:50 on Sunday and arrives in the pueblo around 12:30. The bus stop is 400 metres walk from Arganda del Rey metro (end of line 9) and it will leave you in the Plaza Mayor of the pueblo. From there it´s approx. 400 metres walk to the run site – you will probably need to use GPS – no guarantee that there will be flour!! (In fact, the bus may stop even closer to the r*n site but it´s not clear but see the other bus stop shown on the map below – ask the driver!)
Driving Directions:
One way of getting there:
Take the A2 Hwy.and exit @ Km.23 (M300 Alcala de Henares).
1st roundabout, 1st exit (M203 Torres de Alameda)

Major FRB Run through the golden, autumn foliage of the Arroyo de la Vega, with a Wimps Run thrown in for good measure…plus, extended mega-beer stop.
Restaurant cobbled together, along with the possibility of a vague birthday libation at ASH’s pied-a-terra.

Traumatised in Torrelaguna ASHH

A1 Burgos Hwy and exit @ Km.50 (N320 Torrelaguna).
Approx.7Kms and do that iffy right to go left thing, cross the N320, and head into Torrelaguna.
Approx. 700m and turn left at the T-Intersection.
Almost immediately, turn left at the village crossroads (M131 El Berrueco).
Go under the cute arch and follow the M131 for 1.2Kms.
Carefully turn right onto a dirt track…F.F.F.C.P.
Coordinates: 40.83707 -3.54008

Without Wheels:

There are a whole slew of 197 Buses, originating from Plaza Castilla and depositing you in Torrelaguna…walk in a general northerly direction and pick up Calle San Sebastian, which eventually morphs into a dirt trail, which passes the Ermita de San Sebastian…and it will lead you straight to the MH3 car park.  Alternatively, just follow flour up the M131 for approx.1.2Kms…

Planning for follow-up eats and drinks in the Torrelaguna plaza, which is knee deep in bars/cafes.

ON!!!ON!!! ASH / Horsey C Minge…

Titillated in Titulcia Run ASHH

One way of getting there…
A4 Hwy and exit @ Km.29 ( M404 Ciempozuelos / Titulcia ).
At the exit ramp roundabout take the 4th exit and crossover the A4.
Travel on down the M404 for approx.11Kms.
At the town access roundabout take the 3rd exit into the village.
Turn left into Calle Grande and before the “Iron Bridge” turn right into Avda.del Jarama.
Coordinates: 40.139283 / -3.573124
-Without wheels:
Recommended to approach your favourite wheels with the promise of sexual favours?
The Ciempozuelos train station, on the C3 line, is most adjacent to the M404.
Weather looks good for a picnic, but there are several easy walking distance bars around, doling out the Hash favourites of “chips with everything”.

Beleaguered in Berrocales Run ASHH


Take the A2 Zaragoza Hwy. and exit @ Km.17A (M115).

Bear left and go under the A2, following the M115.

Straight ahead at the 01st roundabout.

3rd exit at the 2nd roundabout (Los Berrocales del Jarama).

Enter the urbanisation and travel down Avda.Puente de los Viveros.

Coordinates: 40.478143 / -3.515304…

-Without Wheels:

The 212 bus leaves the bus station (well, park) beside Canillejas metro at 12 noon on Sunday. Bus first goes through town of Paracuellos de Jarama, then through some countryside, then enters Urbanizacion Los Berrocales del Jarama, very soon after get off at stop Plaza de Paracuellos 47.The journey takes about 35 minutes.


Weather still looking good, so a green site picnic is probably on the cards, although I tend to swither towards a “Beer and Burgers” pub concept.


The “Things Aren´t What They Seem” R*n ASHH

Run No.: 2106

Date: Sunday 21st June 2015

Time: 13:00 (1pm)

Location: El Gurugu

Directions by public transport:

Options are to be collected, by pre-arranged Wheels, from Alcala La Garena train station

Pre-arranged Wheels from “Larry’s Bar”

A whole slew of buses leaving Alcala bus station for El Gurugu / Anchuelo, etc.,

Note from the Editor: Those are the hare´s words. In fact, most of the 6/7 bus routes that stop near El Gurugu either don´t run on Sundays or are highly infrequent. The only viable option (as far as I can see) is the 232 bus which leaves Alcalá (Vía Complutense so that´s 5-10 mins walk from the Cercanías station) at 12:10 and gets to El Gurugu around 12:30. That probably involves getting a C7 train from Atocha at 11:12 or a C2 at 11:22.

Driving Directions:

Take the A2 Hwy and exit @ Km.23 (Alcala de Henares / M300 Arganda).
At the 2nd Roundabout take the 1st exit (M300 Arganda / Loeches).
Travel on the said M300, going straight on at a whole slew of roundabouts and up the wibbly-wobbly hill, for approx. 5.3Kms.
At the top of the hill, take the major roundabout 2nd exit, followed by an almost immediate mini-roundabout 2nd exit (M213 Anchuelo).
After approx.250m, at the bus stop access, do that iffy go right to go left turn and enter El Gurugu urby…F.F.F.C.P.
