Directions to Sandpit run#13


We’re a few days away from the ominous Sandpit#13 on Friday April 26, generously hosted by Forrest Grunt of the Al Ain Hash.

It’s in the dunes near Al Ain, and is 2WD accessible until nearly the campsite. Those of us with 4x4s will run a shuttle for the 2WDers to the campsite. If you get lost or stuck, call Forrest Grunt on 050 625 4601 and he’ll make sure to take note and give many down-downs in the circle afterwards. (Assuming you eventually make it) More seriously, call him and he’ll come and extract you.

The run’s at 5pm and the cost is Dh25, which includes the beer stop – the one and only rule of the Sandpit Hash – and down downs in the circle and also a raffle. Not entirely sure what’s being raffled but I guess you have to turn up to find out.


From about 2 to 2.30pm, Forrest Grunt will be on site, putting out signs for where to turn off and follow the road to the site.
