In modern times, the Hash House Harriers (HHH) was started in 1938 by a British expatriate in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) called Albert Stephen Lgnatius Gispert. Albert who was a big fan of the English running game of ‘Hares and Hounds organized a group of fellow expats with similar interests. This running club took its name from the Selangor Club, which due to the poor quality of it’s food was known as the ‘Hash House’. Since this date Hash House Harrier groups have spread to all four corners of the world in various shapes and sizes and today is a popular and fun way to keep fit and meet new people.
History of Hashing
Hash House Harriers dates back to 1837 where it was an English school boys game of ‘Hares and Hounds’ in which two teams called ‘hounds’ chased others called ‘hares’ who in turn left a trail of paper along a route across fields, woods, streams etc.
Welcome to the home page for the world’s most eccentric running club, the Hash House Harriers. Now with 1987 hash groups registered in the world directory, located in 1298 cities in 185 countries, it is easier than ever for you to find fun, trail, and friendship where you live.
The Hash House Harriers is a more social version of Hare and Hounds, where you join the pack of hounds (runners) to chase down the trail set by the hare or hares (other runners), then gather together for a bit of social activity known as the On In or Down Down with refreshment, humor, song and the occasional feast. In most groups, all are welcome, young and old, fast or slow, so don’t wait to get in shape, just come on out and join us. The only prerequisite to hashing is a sense of humor, so check out a hash near you by clicking on the World Directory link, search for the group nearest you and ring up or email one of the contacts listed there. It’s that simple.
