The Bean Crusher

After much deliberation and due to the limitations people have on travel and cancellation due to the covid travel situation we have decided to postpone the next Yepao Challenge to either a Christmas / New year event or a Spring 2023 event. We are sorry about this but too many people just cannot go for one reason or another and 20 participants just don’t make for a meaningful challenge. Instead for those that still want to go, we have organized some fun but challenging runs for next weekend, 10th December, so if you want to get out of the city and escape please still go. All your entries will be deferred to the next Yepao Challenge however if you prefer a refund please wechat wildhomeservice or email booking@wildhomestay.com and we will sort that out. Thanks for the understanding; Leigh, Peter, Justin & the Yepao Wildhomestay Team….” 经过反复考虑,由于现在对旅行的限制,和一部分跑友活动的取消,我们决定将这次的野跑活动推迟到圣诞节/新年活动或2023年春季活动。我们对此深感抱歉,但太多的人因为这样或那样的原因而无法参加,20名参加者根本不构成有意义的活动。对于那些仍然想去或可以去的人,我们在周末组织了一些有趣但富有挑战性的跑步,所以如果你想逃离城市,欢迎你如期前往。你的报名费将推迟到下一场野跑活动,如果你希望退款,请微信我们wildhomeservice或邮件booking@wildhomestay.com我们会安排解决。感谢你的理解!Leigh, Peter, Justin,野跑及野趣乡居团队

FYI, the current plan is there will be a 10th December Saturday Morning Run <10km and 10th December Saturday Afternoon harder Run >10km. There will be run leaders but the runs won’t be supported which should be fine as you can stock up on things at the homestay between the runs. Stronger runners can do both or just do one. This will also facilitate the worldcup watchers to catch a sleep and the afternoon run. Leigh is working our finial GPX files and will post in the next day or two.
仅供参考,目前的计划是周六上午<10公里跑,周六下午>10公里跑。将会有领跑,但中途不会有供给。体能好的跑者两个都可以参加。要观看世界杯的跑友可以在上午补觉,下午跑步。Leigh正在处理我们的最终GPX文件,并将在接下来的一两天内发布。

Please use the below to sign up for the Weekend 10th December Bus, shared rooms and food packages. Otherwise just book a room through the stay area of the site if you still plan to go. You don’t need to sign up for these fun runs and anyone signed up for the original Yepao Challenged will be automatically deferred to our Winter or Spring event or entitled to a refund.

The Routes – Rescheduled for Winter or Spring!

Leigh likes his beans. He uses them to mark his trails and feed his protein needs. He’s devised three routes around Wildhomestay encompancy some challenging trails with some fantastic views. Beans can be stored and ground all year round. We also run all year round and early winter is a great time as the grasses have died back, the snakes are fast asleep and we can try out some of our warmer sports gear without it being too cold. We will run around various areas where we grow our beans which make our fantastic tofu and as always with our yepao runs we will be challenged by the mountains and streams but rewarded with real nature and great views.
