10th Anniversary Asturias Hash
6, 7 & 8th July 2018
MADRID HASH HOUSE HARRIERS presents Asstour 2018
Where? In Asturias, northern Spain or more precisely in Nava. Journey time is about four and a half hours by car from Madrid.
Why? Why not? And all previous events in Asturias have been a great success. We had a great time.
What do you get? Booze: It’s Cider Festival weekend in Nava and they need lots of help to drink the stuff. They also have beer, wines etc etc. Check out (when updated) the full programme of events here http://www.ayto-nava.es/festival-de-la-sidra.
1. Magnificent mountain run on Saturday a half hour’s drive from the hotel.
2. Atlantic ocean beach run somewhere on Sunday. (We might reverse the order ie. beach on Saturday).
T-shirt: (updated) We are celebrating ten years of Asstour (Culchie era only) so we will prepare a commemorative t-shirt for those who want one. They will be light blue in colour with Adam and Eve on the front and some writing on the back. There will be 2 models, regular cotton or runners’ T-shirt (camiseta técnica). So you decide if you want it or not, and pay accordingly.
Grub: You won’t go hungry or disappointed by the food in Asturias. On Friday night, for those of you who arrive before 10pm, we have a light dinner together in a local restaurant. This is not included in the price for the weekend.
On Saturday evening, after the main run, we dine in our hotel, also famous for its fine food. On Sunday, after the Hare o’ the Dog run we have lunch in one of the local restaurants.
Where to sleep? Some people may want to lie down for a while. To avoid driving late at night it’s best to stay in Nava. We have booked Hotel Villa de Nava and all you need to do is inform us of your needs as soon as possible (there is very high demand for accommodation during festival weekend): Here are last year and this year’s prices:
Hotel Villa de Nava: *** ( for registration, Saturday dinner, convoys etc)
65€ double room; 45€ single, €85 triple. Breakfast and VAT included.
Weekend summary: arrive Friday evening or night, book into the hotel, and register, drinks and nibbles in the hotel. Freshen up, have dinner (not included in price) in our chosen restaurant and check out the ‘fiestas’ in Nava. Saturday morning: please yourself: festival activities in town include cider pouring and tasting; go for a walk; go early to the beach etc. Run starts at 3pm approx. Dinner at 8pm. Night life. Sunday run at 12.00 noon, lunch and head home, stay in Nava or whatever.
Wedge, or what’s it going to cost? I won’t have definite prices until later in May at the earliest but if you book and pay a deposit now I can guarantee you an Early Bird price of €65 till end of April only (I mean it this year) + 3,5€ with a cotton T-shirt or +5€ with a runners’ T-shirt. This will get you hotel priority, two runs, one dinner, one lunch and a t-shirt (refund if there isn’t one). You pay your own hotel bill.
