A drinking club with a running problem.
If you're 21, like to drink beer, socialize, and be outside, then come be a part of the Hash House Harriers! You don’t need to be athletic, as runners and walkers of all abilities are welcome, but you do need a good sense of humor and a willingness for adventure and fun!
Hashing originated in December 1938 in Selayang Quarry, (now Malaysia), when a group of British colonial officers and expatriates began meeting once a week on Monday to run, in a fashion patterned after the traditional British "hare and hounds", to rid themselves of the hangovers of the previous weekend. Albert Stephen Ignatius, "G" or Gispert, is the founder of the Hash House Harriers.
Today Hash House Harriers is an international group of non-competitive running social clubs. An event organized by a club is known as a Hash or simply Hashing, with participants calling themselves Hashers.
The Kiss My H3 fee to run trail is $5 and that includes trail, snacks, and beer. You must be 21 to hash. A trail can be anywhere between 3 and 6 miles, including a beer stop (or two). At the end of every trail we gather together with all attendees and share tales from the trail, sing ridiculous songs, and of course, drink more beer. This is called Circle and it signifies the end of the event, but the fun doesn't stop there. Usually, after a trail, hashers will gather at a bar or restaurant and continue socializing. This is know as the On-After,
Most trails consist of pavement and shiggy (trees and brush). Wear comfortable clothing and shoes that you don't mind getting dirty. Tall, knee high socks (shiggy socks) are worn by many hashers to protect their legs. Also, sun screen and bug spray are a must, especially in the summer.
A trail can last up to two hours and Circle can last as long as there is beer in the cooler! If you want to socialize more after trail, there is always an On-After, which is usually a bar or restaurant near by. If you choose, you could spend the entire evening with hashers!
Everyone is welcome at the hash! We want everyone to feel included and have fun! We can be a little vulgar and sometimes perverted, but it's all in good fun and we have no intentions of offending anyone. That being said, come with an open mind and a good sense of humor!
