The Hash House Harriers

The Hash House Harriers (or H3) might sound like an alliterative joke, but it is a genuine social phenomenon. With nearly two thousand groups operating in just about every major city worldwide, Hashers come together to run, drink, and be merry. Two things are immediately obvious: Hashers are defined by a bawdy schoolyard sense of humour, and appear to come mostly from expat communities. In this, little has changed from its roots when the first Hashers formed over 70 years ago. On on!

Note from Robin :
Sometimes you just stumble upon things when you travel, like a worldwide running/drinking club so popular it even has a chapter in Antarctica. Joining a hash is a great way to meet people, make friends, and get to know a city. Admittedly, the ribald sense of humour that pervades throughout is not everybody's cup of tea, but if you have a stomach for it (and a sense of humour), you'll take to hashing like a pack to a hare.
