  Setting a run    

When you set a run always take somebody with you.
Bring paper and staplers. Clip paper to the trees and leave some on the ground as well. Make sure there is enough paper at the end of the run, in the dark it's difficult to see paper.


Below some hash language:

"Are you?" or "Hear You?" - Asked by the back-runners to the front-runners to know "are you on the Trail"
"On On" or "On Paper" - Shouted by the front-runners to say they are on the Trail
"Checking" - Shouted by front-runners whom have reached a check or a bar and is looking for the On Trail
"Check Back" - Shouted by a front-runner when finding the trail is false and the others should go back to the check and look for the real On Trail
"Passing (left/right)" - Forewarning to a slower runner that you are going to pass them on a narrow trail
"Head" - obstruction at head height i.e. branch
"Foot" - Obstruction at feet level i.e. vines, roots etc.
