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 #150 – “The Yay!!! Yippee!!! We Finally Made It To 150 Run” – Sat, 25 October, 1.00pm (!)

Hello again HZH3 Hashers and those who want to be,

Whether you’re a runner 跑步者, a jogger 慢跑者 or a walker 走步/爬山者, come along and hit the country roads and tea field trails while chasing the ‘hares’ through the forests and over the hills around Hangzhou with us. 欢迎大家!

The Hares for Hash #150 are Sweet FA, Gasbag and Sheep Shagger and ??? (+ 1 more Hare needed!!!).

Don’t forget that Fri, 31 Oct is Halloween! So, wearing Halloween costumes on this Hash is encouraged. If you don’t wear a costume, you can expect an extra Down Down! (Obviously, if you do wear a costume, then you’re going to get an extra Down Down too!)   ;)

记得周五10月31日就是万圣节,所以参加这次Hash不穿万圣节衣服的人们一定会多一次干杯!  (显而易见,穿万圣节衣服的人们也当然都要喝多一次干杯! 哈哈.)

The Hares promise you runners’ and walkers’ trails featuring fantastic, never before seen sights for HZH3 Hash #150. There will be scenic hills and forests, of course, but also tea fields, lakes, lookouts, and cultural sites and other stuff you’d expect on a SCENIC HANGZHOU WEST HILLS FOREST PARK RUN.

This time there will be 3 Hash choices. There will be a long walk, a long run and a Ballbuster run. 这次有三个选择 – 长意漫步, 长跑 和 特长跑。

Hash 150 - Scenery 2 Hash 150 - Scenery 3

HZH3 Hash #149 – “The Who Let The Animals Out Run” – Re-HASHED

HZH3 Hash #149 – “The Who Let The Animals Out Run” – Sat, 11 October, 2.30pm – Starting at the Hangzhou Osmanthus Tea Garden

Hares for Hash #149 were Small Cups and Sweet FA. Small Cups has just recently moved to Hangzhou (to study French) from Xiamen. She helped set a course for the Xiamen Nash Hash earlier this year. It’s great to see her jump straight in to Hare duties here in Hangzhou too!

Unfortunately, Sat, 11 Oct, was a working day for most people, but 8 of us still made it out to the ManJueLong area for a great Hash. We had 2 visitors from Shanghai, Double Nipple Impact and Forest Dump. We also had 3 Hash Virgins (Just “Clara”, Just “Catherine” and Just “Iker”) – well done to each of you! Finally, it was great to see Just “Julian” along for his 2nd Hash with us. In fact, Just “Julian” got started early by walking all the way to the Hash start location from near the ZheDa YuQuan Campus!!!

The Hares set an amazing Hash trail (of course!) that included forest tracks, twisting hill side paths, mountain top lookouts, dark and spooky caves, a scenic beer check and tea field mazes. While we were setting the trail, I don’t know what happened, but near the end, Small Cups got lost when we separated to do separate parts of the runners’ and walkers’ trails… I didn’t have any mobile phone signal (damn you China Unicom!!!!), so I couldn’t contact her.  Later, in the Circle, I don’t know whether she or I should have been given a Down Down…. but, I gave it to her.  ;)  Anyway, I went ahead to meet the Hashers who had been waiting patiently at the start point for the Hares who were running a minute or two (or 30…) late. Luckily, Small Cups arrived just a few minutes later. By now it was already about 3pm…

After some quick pre-Hash instructions for the Hash Virgins. The 5 Hash walkers headed up the hill straight away though Lower ManJueLong Village then on through the twisty forest trail up South Peak while the Hash runners (the experienced SH pair and I) did another loop before joining the same trail. We caught up with the Hash walkers at the top of South Peak. After that we all headed down to WengJia Village to the beer check.

After a refreshing 15 minute break, with the clouds looking quite grey, the runners headed off first. We first descended to another cave and then climbed up above ManJueLong Village again to enter the tea field maze. The runners had extra bonus tea field maze and they had some fun looking for flour spots on the ground between the overgrown tea bushes. The walkers had a simpler route through this section.

A little bit of very light rain started falling in the last 10 minutes of the run and the walkers finished about 15 or 20 minutes later but didn’t get wet either. We ordered some beers and had a very basic Circle led by me and with lots of help from the other experienced Hashers (Thanks guys and girls!).  Four of us stayed around for a tasty, but over-priced Bash dinner (we’ll try a different farmer restaurant next time – I’m sure we’ll head back to this great Hashing area in a few month’s time).

See some of the action in the photos below.

Hangzhou Hash #148 – “The September Shanghai Surprise Run” – Re-HASHED

Hares for Hash #148 on 27 Sep 2014 were Creme Brulee, Obama and KFC (special guest Hares from Shanghai) and they set a fantastic tea fields, hills and forests trail in the MaoJiaBu and China Tea Museum areas.

We had lots of visiting Hashers from Shanghai and Suzhou along for this Hash. It was easily our biggest Hangzhou Hash ever (in the current era, anyway…). We probably had 65 – 70 Hashers!!!

The Hares had us shiggying through wild forests and scrambling up steep rocky slopes. They also crossed the runners trail and half the runners got lost for 30 minutes… Penalty Down Downs were awarded.

But, that’s what can happen when you get the Hares very drunk very late into the night before the Hash.  :)

After a super fun Hash, we had a great Circle with lots of Down Downs and shenanigans. That was followed by a fine feast at the ShiWeiXian Tea Farmer’s Restaurant on MeiLing North Road.

See some of the action in the photos below.

The ACNH2015 Logo has been released!!! See it everywhere… soon!

Hi Thrillseekers!

Well, after the seeking of a number of samples from various Hashing luminaries, multitudinous artistic discussions of existential and surreal merit and juxtaposition, and countless revisions of the revisions of the revisions, the Official Logo of the 14th All China Nash Hash 2015 (ACNH2015 – to be held in picturesque Hangzhou) has been released into the wild…

In the end, we have opted for a home grown ACNH2015 Logo. Roomboy had a vision and this is the result.

 

Thanks to all those who worked on and submitted samples. There will be some extra beer with your name on it at ACNH2015.  :)

 

Behold… <cue angelic chorus…>

Roomboy Logo 4 v4a Timmod jpeg

I’m sure you’ll agree that this Logo encapsulates many, if not all, of Hangzhou’s famed attributes.

I count 8… Can you identify them all?   :)

The Hares promise you runners’ and walkers’ trails featuring fantastic, never before seen sights for HZH3 Hash #147. There will be scenic canals and bridges, of course, but also parks and gardens, and cultural sites and other stuff you’d expect on a SCENIC CANALS RUN.

FYI, for the parents of tiny tots and rug rats out there, this Hash will be 95% baby stroller friendly!!!

Metro 地铁: The Hangzhou Train Station Metro station (杭州站站) and the LongXiang Qiao Metro station (龙翔桥站) are both about 1 – 1.2 kms walk (bike ride) away from the meeting point. See the Transport Maps link (if you can’t see the 2 map pics above) for suggested walking routes to the meeting point.

Public Hire Bikes 共用自行车: Why not beat the traffic jams or get some extra exercise and ride a bike to the start? There are a couple of Red Public Hire Bike points on ZhiDa FangBo Street very near to the meeting point.

After the #147 Hash we’ll have the “Circle” to award Down Downs (beer provided 免费啤酒) for transgressions of Hash etiquette or protocol, errors of judgement, and various other misdemeanours, and then everyone is invited to join us for the Bash (dinner 晚餐). NOTE: The Bash has a separate cost. 注意:晚餐是另一个费用.

You can expect HZH3 Hash runs roughly (or sometimes VERY roughly… if the hares had a big night out on the night before…) every other Saturday (i.e. fortnightly) and both runners’ and walkers’ trails will usually be set.

It’s fun, it’s social, it’s healthy (mostly…), so come along and be a part of it!!!

HZH3 Hash #146 – “The Search for the Real Dragon Well Run” – (briefly) re-Hashed…

HZH3 Hash #146 – The Search for the Real Dragon Well Run – 16 August 2014

Meeting point/Bash venue: Qiao Garden Hotel (Qiao Yuan Wo Jia), No. 168 Longjing Village, Xihu District, Hangzhou – 杭州市, 西湖区, 龙井村162号, 侨园我家 (从龙井村公交车站(K27)向北走一百米)

Hares: Private Parts and Just “Birkhoff”

Report by lead Hare, Private Parts:

Hash 146 was a Tea Village and Tall, Tall, Tall Mountain run.  The hash was centered around Longjing Tea Village.  The Hares, Private Parts and Just “Birkoff” met early in the day to set the run using flour, chalk, and a nearly lethal amount of testosterone and adrenaline.  Not shy of a little climbing, they set the toughest Hangzhou Hash yet, as measured by vertical gain.  The runner’s trail was 5.04 miles with a vertical gain of 1879ft and a maximum slope of 45% (which is super steep, by the way) and an average slope of 14.2%.  The walker’s trail was a milder but still challenging 3.53 miles with a vertical gain of 911 feet, a max slope of 34% and an average slope of 10.5%.
Perhaps the Hares were a little too ambitious, because they just finished setting the trail right before it was time to start, though the Pack of 28 hashers hardly noticed.  After a quick meeting and briefing, the runners started off at 4:00 sharp with the walkers leaving soon thereafter.  While the runners climbed Lion Peak, the walkers took a scenic stroll through Longjing Village and down Jiuxi Road. Both groups quickly became lost and learned the importance of teamwork while hashing!  Halfway down the Jiuxi Road the groups met up at the first of two planned beer stops, and Heavy Junk, AKA Hash Flash took the opportunity to take a group photo.  The walkers again took to the trail with the runners not far behind.  After wandering up yet another hill and through some picturesque tea fields, the runners took another break for beer in WengJiaShan village while the walkers returned to the Bash venue.
After the run, the group first set down for beers and food (due to the bus schedule), and then conducted a Circle after dinner.  The food was great, the beer was shitty but cheap, and the environment was very peaceful.  Keg on Legs from Hong Kong Southside Hash made a guest appearance and really helped out with the camraderie. As usual, we were very happy to introduce several Virgin Hashers.  Everyone had a great time.

Photo 3:  Amazing lake side scenery during the Hash. A good spot for Hash walkers and Hash runners to stop together for a photo.  
Photo 4:  What’s the best thing to do at the end of the Hash? Drink some cold beers, of course.  ;)
Thanks to those I stole, errr, borrowed photos from. Thanks especially to Kim Kendall for her awesome photographs!!!
