Dear Hangzhou Hashers and Friends,
The all new 2014 Hangzhou Hash House Harriers (HZH3) Hash schedule begins very soon! Yes folks, after more than 3 years without an active Hash the Hangzhou kennel is soon to be restarted, revived, renewed, rejuvenated and … errr … rebirthed (?) and you’re invited to this special, once in a generation occasion!
Welcome to all “old” Hangzhou Hashers and new Hangzhou Hashers too. Also very welcome are visitors from other Hash kennels. And, of course, Hash “virgins” are especially welcome! 😉
Whether you’re a runner, a jogger or a walker, come along and hit the convoluted roads and twisting forest trails while chasing the “hares” through the tea fields and over the hills around Hangzhou with us.
Here are the details of the first new HZH3 Hash run since late in 2010:
Date: Saturday, 22 Feb 2014
Time: Meet at 14:30 (2.30pm) – Hash run/walk starts at 15:00 (3pm) sharp!
Start Location: We will start the #134 HZH3 Hash at Maya Bar (马雅酒吧) on ShuGuang Road (曙光路) opposite QiuShi Road (求是路口). Maya Bar website and Google Map (click link). Maya Bar has a lot of history for the HZH3, so it’s the ideal start point for our HZH3 restart Hash #134. Smart Hashers might be able to guess where the end point will be too… 😉
Hares: H.E.I.D.E. & Sweet FA
Cost: 20RMB – run/walk, beer and snacks
Bus: K194 (from Binjiang) to Zheda FuZhong bus stop (浙大附中站) on ShuGuang Road. + 100’s of other buses…
After the #134 Hash we’ll have the “Circle” to award down downs (beer provided) for transgressions of Hash etiquette or protocol, errors of judgement, and various other misdemeanours, and then everyone is invited to join us for the big HZH3 restart Bash (dinner). NOTE: The Bash has a separate cost.
From this event on, 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!!!
Asst – “Elaine” / Elaine – We’ll have to do something about that hash name in 2 or 3 hashes time! 😉
