Kobe Hash House Harriers 1000th run

7.00 pm, Monday, August 26, 1996 Hare: Sukebe
From the KR&AC, Sannomiya, Kobe
The Kobe Regatta and Athletic Club (KR&AC) is 10 minutes walk south east of JR Sannomiya. Follow the Portliner tracks (overhead monorail). The tracks leave the JR station then turn south, crossing Route 2 and heading down a smaller street. The KR&AC is about 300 meters down this street, on the left, in between the second and third set of lights.
This is a one way run to a BBQ in the mountains. Taste Sukebe's famous sausages and drink Sapporo beer.
We've been terrorizing Kobe for 1000 Mondays, come and give us a hand!

Location: Hankyu Mukonoso - south exit. Hare: Picca. Join this veteran hasher for a genuine Kobe style run (and swim!) followed by a barbecue. ON ON!!!
