Sounds feasible :) It's mostly gone now anyway, my sprinkler dissolved it.



So if anyone sees a bunch of lycra-clad souls wandering around  looking lost, it's timmmay's fault tongue-out

It'd say it's the fault of the person who didn't think through that chalk gets washed away by water!

Indeed it is the Hash House Harriers but you will find few Lycra clad types - its a social club who end their ~ 1 hour 'run' at a suitable watering hole, e.g. Pub, RSA etc. for a beer or two and food.


Its flour or chalk so that it will wash / blow away or be eaten so as to not disfigure the footpath.  If you follow the marks to the circle (called a check) you have to look for the trail continuation up to 100m away - this lets the slower joggers / walkers (we have them too) catch up.  I did say they are a very social group and totally non-competitive !


There are five groups in Wellington and you can find where they start and links to their individual web sites here

Looks like a fleet of TIE fighters circling the Death Star to me.
