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.

HZH3 Hash #157 – “The Almost 12 Months Since We Were Reborn Hash” – Sat, 31 January, 1.30pm

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 #157 are Triple-X and Gasbag.

The reborn Hangzhou Hash is almost 1 year old, so come and join the fun and celebrate with us this Saturday afternoon!!!   :)

The Hares promise you runners’ and walkers’ trails featuring fantastic, never before seen sights for HZH3 Hash #157. 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 #157 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!!!

Dear Nash Hashers. After not much research or investigation, but lots of soul-searching, head-scratching, arse-scratching, general intellectual masturbation and much ado about nothing, we are very happy to announce that the official ACNH2015 Nash Hash hotel will be the Hangzhou Grand Metropark Hotel (杭州维景国际大酒店).

To get this great discount deal, when booking, you MUST email the hotel Reservations Manager via “contact.hzgm [AT] hkctshotels [DOT] com” and in the email Subject and Body you MUST provide the discount code: “14th ACNH“. 

NOTE: This is the new (21 Jan) amended hotel reservation contact email address. Sorry for any inconvenience caused in changing the email address, but it was out of our control.

As the central Nash Hash hotel, the Grand Metropark Hotel will be the place to check-in for the ACNH2015 and collect your event package on Friday afternoon, 22 May 2015. Check-in will open at about midday (TBA). We will also have the Friday evening post-Hash Circle and Bash here.

The Grand Metro Park is on the east side of West Lake, which is only about a 20 minute walk away. The hotel is about a 45 minute taxi ride from the Hangzhou Xiaoshan Airport. At least one of the Hangzhou Airport shuttle buses stops right outside the hotel as well. It is a 20 minute walk from the Hangzhou Train Station. And about a 30 minute taxi ride from the new Hangzhou East Train Station. It is just a 5 minute walk to the Hangzhou Wushan Night Market and only a 10 minute walk to the Yan’An Road shopping precinct.

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.
