Chinese Valentine’s Day in Yangmingshan
As you all know, the past 8/7 (7/7 in Chinese Calendar) was the celebration of the Chinese Valentine’s Day. This day commemorates the love story between Zhinu (also known as the Weaver Girl, symbolizing the star Vega) and Niulang (also known as the Cowherd, symbolizing the star Altair). Their love was not allowed, so they were banished to opposite sides of the heavenly river (symbolizing the Milky Way). Once a year, on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month, a flock of magpies would form a bridge to reunite the lovers for one day.
Since in China Hash House Harriers we never want to miss an opportunity to show our love for running and drinking and also, to commemorate the Chinese Valentine’s Day, the hares have prepared a fantastic run in Yangmingshan.
You think you know Yangmingshan? Think again! Come check out the secret spots and hidden trails that the hares have lovingly curated for you. 8km A-A. Stunning views. A Beer Check. Runnable trails. Water features and the usual splendid array of jungle, agriculture, shiggy and quirky sights that you can expect from a TeenVolf/Slobbo Tamer run. And a Love Bridge to honor the reunion of the beer lovers. Oh, and a PUBLIC SWIMMING POOL at the run-finish – clear, clean, cold, fresh mountain-spring water. Bring your swimsuits and a few coins to swim. No beers in the pool though.
The Bash Place is a thirty second walk from Down Downs, and right next to the bus stop back to town… Plan to stay!
