Run 1475: Oct 3rd @ 10am: Victim's Final Hash

Sunday's run will start from Plot 4746 near State House at 10.00 am.
It will be followed by a bring and braai - bring food as well as eating utensils.

Coming from Nelson Mandela, turn into Khama Crescent. Pass President's Drive, then the road to State House and then take the next left into Makgadikgadi.  Enter the circle and take the first turn left and then about 100m on turn right. The house is the first gate on your right.

Early birds can park inside the compund but there is no parking allowed in the street outside so latecomers can park in Mookla - the second exit from  the traffic cicle.  The hare says - do not allow the guard at the gate to turn you away if there is space inside - apparently, about 10-15 vehicles can park inside).

See the map below from Google  - which thinks we drive on the right in Botswana, so don't go the wrong way round the traffic circle!This is also an old map as North Ring road does not go through to Khama (but it at least gives you an idea where the start is)
