LUBRIN is a small, quiet village sitting high in the Sierra de los Filabres. The village began as a medieval settlement but gradually became a tranquil enclave of charm and tradition. It is a typical rural village set in the heart of Andalucia, with most of its small population working in agriculture and livestock rearing and of course almonds and olives. Lubrin has some interesting architecture with the Parish Church de la Virgen de Rosario, built in the 19th century.
The peace and quiet of this pretty place was shattered by the arrival of a bunch of Hashers who took over the terrace of the bar Las Delicias overlooking the village. After coffee and chats and renewed friendships the circle was formed in the road. Way marks and trails were explained by the hares before everyone set off.
The runners were observed doing hardly any running as the first part of the trail was uphill. The walkers continued down roads and tracks into a rambla, It was there that one hasher was deemed a ‘winker’ and to cap that, on the return into the outskirts of the village the walkers came across a couple of ‘swingers.’
After ascending a steep incline the walkers arrived back at the starting point followed by the runners from the opposite direction looking pretty shattered from their experience.
Refreshments were given and the circle was formed where the usual punishments were administered. After the songs were sung the runners and walkers retired to the bar for a healthy diet of tapas and more beer with lots of good conversation.
