Who are we?
Hashing has been described as a “drinking club with a running problem”.
More specifically, it is social jogging for the unfit, slightly fit and nearly fit. Runs are typically three to four miles and are laid using plain flour, in advance, by one or more “hares”, usually following roads, lanes or footpaths. There are “checks” every half mile, or less, where better runners can run further in endeavouring to find the correct path, and lesser runners can have a rest. Hashing is not a race, the aim is that because of “checks” and “false trails”, all the runners finish at about the same time.
Runs usually start and end at a pub, and it is customary for “hashers” to take advantage of the facilities offered after the run. Dress is usually scruffy running gear (trainers, shorts/tracksuit, T-shirt) as it can be muddy.
If you'd like to try hashing, just turn up at one of the forthcoming runs or, for confirmation of venue/other details, see the Contact section below.
