New to Hashing? The Hash House Harriers are a group of loosely affiliated running (and drinking) groups around the world. A group of Hashers ‘the hounds’ follow a trail set by a fellow Hasher ‘the hare’ who has run the trail earlier leaving marks in flour or chalk so the hounds know where to run. The running is not taken terribly seriously and there are enough false trails, check backs and other ticks to keep the speedy front runners looking for the right trail while the slow and steady runners and the walkers catch up...

HZH3 Hash #152 – “The Two Maiden Hares Furn in the Forest Run” – briefly Re-HASHED

HZH3 Hash #152 – “The Two Maiden Hares Furn in the Forest Run – Sat, 22 November, 2.30pm – Starting and finishing at the Fragrant City Restaurant (XiangDu Lou) at #11 JiuXi Xu Cun in XiHu District of Hangzhou – 香都楼 – 杭州市, 西湖区, 九溪徐村11号 (近九溪车站). 

Hares for Hash #152 were Sweet FA, Escort Me, and Just “Concha”. Escort Me and Just “Concha” were Maiden Hares. They helped set a great trail through the WuYun Hill forests and 9 Creeks tea fields near the QianTang River S-W of West Lake.

On what was a lovely, but slightly smoggy, day, there were about 30 Hashers along for fun in the Sun. It was very good to see some more Hash Virgins along for this Hash.

Unfortunately, Sheep Shagger arrived late and missed the start… Instead of trying to catch the pack, he decided to run backwards along the return trail. Naturally, he was awarded an extra Down Down for his transgression!  But, he was not awarded the Hash Shit necklace. That honour went to someone else who arrived even later!!! I’ll tell you who in a minute…

The Hash went pretty smoothly, but some of the FRBs (front running bastards) decided to make the Hash a bit longer than the Hares planned by running past a very clearly marked turnoff. Private Parts loses a few navigation points for that stuff up… but, he gains a Down Down!

Due to the excellent trail design, by the excellent Hares, all the Hash runners and Hash walkers finished at about the same time.

Following the Hash, the Hashers formed the Circle and heard many entertaining tales. On just her 2nd Hash, Just “Cecilia” was selected to be the Beer Wench for a 2nd time! Once again, she did an excellent job. Will she make it 3 for 3???   ;)    Stay tuned after the next Hash… Oh, it was also her birthday, but she left just before Gasbag managed to find a birthday candle for her. Happy Birthday, Just “Cecilia”!!!

Another fun activity in this Circle was a practice boat race. After losing to both Shanghai and Suzhou after HZH3 Hash #148 and then losing to Shanghai again (but, beating Suzhou) in AnJi, HEIDE thought we needed some extra boat racing drinking practice. We did OK.

So, who was the Hash Shit? None other than HZH3 G.M., H.E.I.D.E…. He turned up halfway through the Circle wearing a jacket, suit and tie. So, he had more Down Downs for being ridiculously well dressed as well.

One of the highlights of the Circle was Just “Concha” getting her Hash name with a not quite full naming ceremony (I don’t remember seeing a raw egg…). She did extremely well to stay on her knees on the hard concrete ground for so long. She definitely has Hash stamina! After the very long discussion and questioning process, a Hash name was chosen… From now on, Just “Concha” should be called The Sea Word!

After the Circle about 20 Hashers stayed on and enjoyed a great meal. Thanks to Escort Me (Eva) for making a great menu selection!!!

Finally, it was the last Hangzhou Hash for Just “Laurie” the vivacious flame haired Doctor from South Africa. She was only in Hangzhou for a month, but she Hashed her heart out attending 2 or 3 HZH3 Hashes and also the big AnJi Hashing weekend. Fare well, Laurie, you’ll be missed!!! I hope you find a new Hash group to join in South Africa soon.

Overall, Hash #152 was held in a really nice and scenic area that we had mostly to ourselves… I’ll let the photos do the talking. See some of the action in the photos below.

Hashing weekend (15-16 Nov) trip to (near) AnJi - briefly Re-HASHED

A couple of  weekends ago, about 16 intrepid Hangzhou Hashers joined a fantastic Hashing weekend trip to (near) AnJi (安吉) with many Suzhou and Shanghai Hashers. The organisers were the Suzhou Hashers. Hash times were: Sat, 15 Nov, 2pm and Sun, 16 Nov, 10am. The Hashes started and finished in the scenic bamboo forests of ChangTan Township (长潭村) about 40kms S-W of AnJi City.

The Hangzhou Hashers were: Triple-X, Pain in the Clit, Magic Foot Long, Just “Laurie”, Just “Trisha”, Just “Theresa”, Just “Pinar”, Just Change”, Just “Eric” and Sweet FA, who all travelled in style on public buses (and in a BMW for the last 5kms of the journey)!  ;)   One tiny hiccup was that before we got in the BMW and other car, at the ZhangCun Village (长村镇) bus station, we had 10 people, but when we got to the hotel, we only had 9… Sorry Theresa!!!!! Nevermind, she was soon picked up and we settled into a rooms and a nice warm lunch.

The Hangzhou public transport Hashers were the first arrivals except for the Hares who’d driven in the night before. We didn’t see them though as they were out busily setting the trail.

Also participating from the Hangzhou Hash were, Phonebox, Gasbag, and Just “Cathy” who came with the Shanghai Hashers. And, HEIDE, Frogger and Just “Joe” drove up in a car just for Saturday’s Hash and Bash (and they missed the start of the Saturday Hash by about 20 minutes…).

The Hares got back from setting the trail with about 30 minutes to spare… their rushing to finish the trail would cost them A LOT of Down Downs!!!  ;)

It was a great trail through endless bamboo forests and along forest roads. There was some good bamboo forest shiggy. There was a great beer check on top of the main hill. Also there was a Chinese company doing a team building exercise of rappelling down a 60m drop off from a giant aqueduct.

Unfortunately, either the Hares stuffed up badly, or the front running bastards (FRBs) can’t read basic trail marks… I think the Hares stuffed up by not cancelling a deadend trail well enough. SO, most of the running pack went 2 or 3kms in the wrong direction… got stuck at a creek edge on the side of a very steep hill and then had to go all the back to the beer check and just head Home.

Some Hashers were out well after dark and some cars came to the rescue to ferry some of us back for the Circle. Happily, no-one was lost too badly… In the end, we had to eat dinner first and then the Circle was belatedly held. It was a very good Circle!  :)   However, once again Shanghai bested us in a boat race. At least we beat Suzhou this time!

After the Circle, the shenanigans and drinkening continued well into the night around a little camp fire. Reports of wood borrowing and chair burnings were given the next day… Obama generously shared around a bottle of “Fireball Whisky”, which isn’t actually a whisky, by the way… but, very tasty nonetheless.  :)

The next day, for the Hangover Hash, the Hares hadn’t really planned a trail and the group (minus a few Hashers who decided to sleep in…) got on the Shanghai Hashers’ bus and headed to a new spot up the road. From the some of the Shanghai Hashers (you can guess who…) grabbed the flour and chalk and proceeded to make a quick Hash trail.

Following the Hash, the bus returned and a great Circle was held outdoors. There were 2 Hash namings held in the quite chilly weather.

Following the Circle, everyone packed up and headed home… The 10 Hangzhou Hashers + Gasbag decided we would walk the 5kms back to the ZhangCun Village bus station. Along the way we discovered how cheap takeaway food shop bamboo chopsticks are made.

Shanghai has volunteered to organise the next Hashing weekend trip at an unspecified future date.

Eventually, Hangzhou might have to take a turn. Ideas? Lin’An is close but has some great location…?

Anyway, it was a really picturesque area around AnJi… I’ll let the photos do the talking.

See some of the action in the photos below.

HZH3 Hash #151 – “The Down The Road From The Jade Emperor Run” – briefly Re-HASHED

HZH3 Hash #151 – “The Down The Road From The Jade Emperor Run” – Sat, 8 November, 2.30pm – Starting and finishing at the Village Imperial Garden Restaurant (XiangCun Yu HuaYuan) at #76 KuoShiBan Street (near YuHuangShan Road – about 1km South of West Lake) in ShangCheng District of Hangzhou乡村御花园 – 杭州市, 上城区, 阔石板路76号 (近玉皇山路)

Hares for Hash #151 were Private Parts, Just “Abby”, and Just “YuJi”. They set a great trail through TaiZiWan Park and along the southern part of West Lake.

It was a bit a drizzly day, but really the rain was almost nothing and any Hashers who didn’t come to Hash #151 because of the (almost no) rain on this Hash should give yourself 2 or 3 Down Downs immediately!   ;)

There were about 12 Hashers altogether. And, it was very good to see some Hash Virgins along. Also, one of Private Parts’ and Heavy Junk’s friends was visiting from Beijing.

Just “Abby” had to leave right after setting the trail. And, Comes Too Fast actually came too late and missed the start by 15 or 20 minutes… and he never caught up with the pack since he got lost on the trail. Naturally, Comes Too Fast was awarded the Hash Shit necklace and had to do the straight arm Down Down..

After the Hash, the highlight was Just “YuJi” getting her Hash name with a full naming ceremony. From now on, Just “YuJi” should be called Private Dancer!

It was a really nice and scenic area that we had mostly to ourselves… I’ll let the photos do the talking. See some of the action in the photos below.

New earlier meeting time for December 2014 and January 2015 HZH3 Hashes

RUN logo

Hi Hashers, Here are a couple of quick updates for you.

First, note that our HZH3 Hash events in December and January will start 1 hour earlier with meeting at 1.30pm. This is so we can make the Hash hiking and running courses a bit longer and still hold the Circle in daylight too.

You can always see future planned HZH3 Hashes on the HZH3 Receding Hareline page on our HZH3 website, but check back once or twice as the event approaches as there may may some changes after initial details are posted.

HZH3 Receding Hareline:  http://www.hangzhou-hhh.org/?page_id=8

Second, it’s great that we already have 3 Hares for our next Hash #153 on Sat, 6 Dec, 1.30pm. Thanks to lead Hare, Phonebox, and co-Hares, Just “Theresa” and Just “Cecilia” for volunteering early and making my job easy! Yay!!!  

HZH3 Hash #153 will take place just S-E of West Lake in the YuHuang Shan (Jade Emperor Hill) and WuShan Square area of Hangzhou. Although Phonebox lives in Shanghai these days, she’s one of the original Hangzhou Hashers from 5 years ago and knows how to set a great Hash trail. Stay tuned for the next HZH3 Newsletter in your email box for details!!!

Make sure you’re on our HZH3 Newsletter email mailing list. mismanagement [AT] hangzhou-hhh [DOT] org

Third, if you want to volunteer to be a Hare, then try to do the same as the 3 well organised Hares for our next Hash have done and put your hand up as early as possible. You don’t have to wait until 1 week before the next Hash to volunteer to be a Hare. The earlier, the better! Just look at the future Hashes we have planned on the HZH3 Receding Hareline page on our HZH3 website (see link above) and think about which date suits you, then let me know for which Hash you can volunteer to be a Hare. We love Hares and we love volunteers! 

Cheers and On! On!

HZH3 Hash #150 – “The Yay!!! Yippee!!! We Finally Made It To 150 Run” – Re-HASHED

HZH3 Hash #150 – “The Yay!!! Yippee!!! We Finally Made It To 150 Run” – Sat, 25 October, 1.00pm – Starting at the TongWu Mountain Tea Village Bus Station and ending at the LongWu Tea Village.

Hares for Hash #150 were Gasbag, Sheep Shagger, Just “Birkhoff” and Sweet FA. Sheep Shagger and Sweet FA did some scouting during the week before the Hash, but do you think that prevented any trail setting mishaps from happening… No, it didn’t. But, in any case, at the end of the day the Hash #150 Walkers’ and Runners’ trails got the thumbs up from all the Hashers. So, it was a successful day for the Hares!!!

There was a bit of panic before the Hash as this was the first time we tried hiring a bus to pick the Hashers up and take them to the Hash start point for the A to B run. With not long to go until the buses were due to arrive, there were small groups of Hashers wandering aimlessly around the world famous Gudang Green Square… Anyway, they finally all came together (Ooooo!) just in time to find the buses and get on board.

Due to various trail setting misadventures, only one Hare made it back to the start point in time for the Hash start. Well done to Just “Birkhoff” who had set the special parts of the Walkers’ trail. Meanwhile, Sheep Shagger and Gasbag finished off the Long Run trail and then put their feet up for 2 hours waiting for the Hashers to reach HOME… which they’d marked all the way to their table at the Bash venue instead of to the designated HOME Circle location at the Giant Teapot Statue… It’s so hard to find good help these days! While those two were taking it easy, I took another hour or so to finish off the Ballbuster Run Hash trail and then set up the Circle location after I got back to HOME.

Out on the Hash trails, due to the inability of the Pack to read simple and clearly marked Hash marks, they got lost and delayed a couple of times, so in the end no Hash runners made it to the Long Run turn-off point before the 4.30pm cut-off point to continue on the Ballbuster Run trail. I see that this left Obama very sad as he’d hoped to tackle the full Ballbuster Run… or was he just pretending to be upset and in reality was crying tears of joy and that he was scared of Hangzhou’s Hash #150 Ballbuster Run Trail…? The jury is still out.

At the Circle there were a surprising number of Down Downs given to the Hares, considering the perfectly laid Hash Trail we’d set… It was great to see quite a few people made the effort to wear a costume for Halloween. It was super awesome to have quite a few Hash Virgins join us on this Hash. And, finally, it was fantastic to have a goodly number of visiting Hashers from Shanghai and Hong Kong, etc.

The Bash (held at Cha Zhi Yu 茶之语 Restaurant) was a mighty fine feast fit for a King or at least a Duke… During the dinner Obama led the Hash naming ceremony for 2 Hashers. Welcome to My Brother’s Rubber and Magic Foot Long!

The after party was held at Amigo Bar and various other places around Hangzhou.

If all goes well, then we should hit HZH3 Hash #200 in late 2016. Don’t miss it!!!

See some of the action in the photos below.

The Official information and Registration website is: http://www.panasiapondy.com/

FYI, Triple-X and Gasbag have already signed up!

“Pondy” = Pondicherry = Puducherry (Tamil) which is a small, scenic beachside city with a long French colonial history. It is in Tamil Nadu State about 150kms south of Chennai City on the S-E coast in India. See Google Map link: https://goo.gl/maps/LO3xB

Here’s what the organisers have to say:

“The biggest event in the 2015 Hashing calendar is a 100% On On!

After the early mismanagement . . . hey, come on its a hash after all, the web-site is live and online registration will be available before the end of the month. We have negotiated excellent Hash rates for local accommodation and you will be able to view and book by following the
link on the PANHP2015 web-site by the end of the month.

The committee’s experience of organising various Nash and anniversary Hashes ensures this will be the biggest and most fun Hash event of the year with great venues, challenging runs, the ever popular Charity Red dress run and of course lashing of alcohol.

As always we are looking for Hashers to support the event and help with the organisation so let us know via email if you are interested. . .

We are also planning for the [Circle] “Down Downs” to be hosted by various Hashing groups from around the world to add to the international flavour of the PANHP 2015. Again, all you Grand Masters, Religious Advisors or Hashers who think they can run a fun circle please contact us via email with your Hash group name and theme.

Sounds fun? then join the fun and register today!”
