140 Celebrated Danish Constitution Day in KL

A few Danish die-hard hash runners in Malaysia organized a Danish Constitution Day Run for their friends and the Danish community in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday, 6 June. The run was set at the beautiful Bukit Kiara followed by a party in the jungly setting of the Hash Heritage Site. Some 140 happy Danes and hashers turned up for a successful event.

According to experienced hashers, the run was not outrageously special in terms of a hash run but everybody enjoyed, if nothing else, a splendid walk in beautiful surroundings in the greens of Bukit Kiara. And there were definitely a few tired legs afterwards too as the trail covered a magnificent hill! But thanks to Carlsberg and Suntonic, the thirst was quenched in a suitable and very Danish manner…
The run was officially started with a red ribbon cut by Danish Commercial Counsellor and no. 2 of the Royal Danish Embassy in KL, Helle Sejersen Myrthue. As a matter of fact, a good number of embassy staff supported the event this year, the 5th of such an event in KL. Also well represented with over 10 people were the Danish fronted IEN Consultants spearheaded by Gregers Reimann, a wellknown green name amongst Danes in KL.
The official hare was Anette Andersson supported by longterm Danish KL residents Anker Nielsen and the artist Charlotte Donvang plus newbie Alex Madsen, all helped out by spouses, kids and other friends.
After the run, a sumptuous meal with Danish delicacies including herring, homesmoked fish, pate, frikadeller (meat balls) and more was served and finished off with a tempting spread of Emborg cheeses.
As usual, fun was had by all who went home with a goody bag including a Viking design T-shirt with Danish flags on the shoulders,  jam from Den Gamle Fabrik, drinks bottle, Vitagens, bisquits and more. Thanks to the sponsors: Carlsberg, Emborg, IEN Consultants, Kenwell, Chr. Hansen, Suntonic, Tero Technology and friend’s donations.
The KL Harriettes runs on Wednesdays at 6 pm all around Kuala Lumpur and both women and men are welcome, please see more on http://klharriettes.org/
