HARDY runners and walkers with the Indalo Hash House Harriers braved the high ground of Chirivel immediately after the late January rain and snow storms, raising €120 for victims of the Australian bush fires.
Luckily the sun came out to warm things up a bit as the group headed towards the snow covered mountains, for which they were rewarded with beautiful views.
The trail took the runners through a bit of mud, then almond groves, and back along an ancient track to a bar to meet their walking friends.
Given the aim of the fundraising and the fact they were meeting on Australia Day, several members could not resist a little Down Under-themed dressing up!
The Indalo Hash House Harriers next meeting will on February 9 in Lubrin at 10.45am.
