Organiser's Description

      LAST YEAR’S ‘HAIR OF THE DOG’ IS NOW OUR
              ST. PATS RUN on St. Patrick’s morning 
 We have just enough glasses, wine & Bloody Mary’s to cover our participants. 
 It’s the morning of St Patrick’s day and it’s time to roll out of bed and get up for a little “PRE PARTY” activity.  You might want a little help (excuse) to consume the corned beef and ales today? So join us! But- maybe if you join some friends it’ll be easier?        Last year we hosted “The Hair of the Dog” 5K
An event featuring a little taste of what might’ve bitten you the night before. But this year with St Pats on a Sunday we switched gears.  Our small ‘boutique’ 5K event is hosted by the Little Pub in the Lordship section of Stratford. It will feature some amenities you don’t often find in a local run as part of the ‘package’.   This event was created by the overly active minds which brought you the Happy HolloWINE 5K, the Christmas in July Surfin Santa, and the once-in-a-lifetime ‘LAST WALTZ, 1-2-3’

FROM LAST YEAR-For those who desperately seek more information (or never heard the expression ’Hair of the Dog’), here ya go-
 
What does hair of the dog mean?A morning drink may be the last thing you want after a night of boozing, but that’s exactly what this quirky English expression means. Originally, the expression referred to a method of treating a rabid dog bite; hair from the dog was placed in the wound. So in that sense, having another drink (any drink) is like taking hair from the dog that bit you.
(By the way, medical professionals do not prescribe alcoholic drinks to treat the symptoms of a hangover. However, they do encourage drinking water and getting rest.)
What does the name Bloody Mary mean?Many suffering from the morning-after blues indulge in a Bloody Mary as a hangover cure. This savory cocktail contains vodka, tomato juice, and other flavorings such as horseradish, celery salt, lemon juice, and Tabasco sauce.
There are as many versions of the Bloody Mary as there are theories regarding who the drink is named after, with beliefs ranging from Queen Mary I, to the actress Mary Pickford, to a waitress in Chicago who worked at a bar called the Bucket of Blood.
