Unkindly called by some "The Drinking Club with a Running Problem", the Hash House Harriers is essentially a social organisation with a running element so, perhaps, the deep-rooted morals should be - "Running with Attitude" or "You Have to Earn Your Drink"!
And so, runs are organised. And indeed, runs are being organised all over the world - well, not quite everywhere, but most of the English-speaking world and many of those areas where ex-patriate Brits associate and seek some small exercise before the sun goes down.
The idea of Hashing was started in the 1930's by a group of slightly-unfit ex-pat Brits in the Far East and since then has spread to thousands of other locations, and tens of thousands of enthusiastic runners turning out at least once a week. We are, in fact, the biggest "sport" that no-one's ever heard of - though sport may be an arguable term in some cases! If you want more historical and technical detail, please try here.
Hashes vary - and that's saying something! Hashing can be anything from a 16-mile back-breaking cross-country run to a Pub Crawl! Here, on the Island, we are somewhat conventional, with a weekly series of runs following a trail laid by a 'Hare' selected from our number.
We are not a club. This page just advertises the runs that each Hare has offered to lay. Trails, about 4-6 miles, generally follow public rights of way and open land and are laid in flour, sawdust or similar. Along the trail, route choices are marked by 'checks' and this not only provides interest for the faster runners, but also ensures that many are sent the wrong way enabling the slower to catch up, thereby keeping the 'pack' together throughout the run. See! Perhaps we are a Social Club after all! In fact, the rate of progression of the pack has been estimated to be half the speed of our faster runners so, if you can manage that, you will be very welcome to join us. Our runners are of all ages and many see the weekly Hash run as one commitment NOT to be missed.
We do ask all participants who join our hash trails to be mindful for their own and others' safety, and to respect the Countryside Code.
And finally, the important bit. We generally meet and de-brief at one of the many fine Island pubs. The Island Hash prides itself on being welcome for its post-run 'Après' at almost every alehouse on this land.
