A world wide "drinking club with a running problem" with 2000+ chapters spread through almost every major city in the world, the Hash House Harriers is a social club running through shig (rough terrain), urban pub crawls, and a variety of other trails that include plenty of beer, shenanigans, and opportunities for inappropriate fun. Some trails are casual and rugged, others are costume events, like the annual Red Dress Run hosted by every chapter throughout the year, or Sacramento's Annual Superhero Run.

The hare lays trail using piles of flour, chalk marks, or by whatever other means necessary, and the pack follows shortly after, running or walking by following the clues left for them. Each trail begins with pack introductions over a beer, chalk talk in which the hare explains what to expect on trail, and whatever else we feel like filling the time with while we give the hare a short head start. Trails generally end with "religion", during which the pack circles up and humiliates/congratulates the each other and the hare on a trail well laid or followed, and shows off their best drinking songs and debauchery over, you guessed it, more beer.

ALL hashers are encouraged to hare trails, and they can be anywhere in the Sacramento area, any day of the week, rain or shine. Trails vary in length and difficulty entirely at the hare's discretion, so no two are alike. Some trails are for charity, others just for fun, and all are worth checking out.

Expect uncouth nicknames, hidden beer on trail, wild stories to impress or horrify friends with, and a great group of like-minded people who enjoy good company, ridiculous behavior, and, yes, beer.

Dirty jokes and drinking songs are de rigeur, so bring your best and show us what you've got. Events are generally adult oriented (21+), but occasional trails are stroller & dog friendly. Details for each trail are posted on our calendurrr at SacH3.com, and trails are posted frequently, so check often or follow us on Facebook!


** NOTE : Hares generally scout trail a few days before hand, so you will generally see a STD (save the date) with time and date ONLY up until a few days before trail. Fear not, details WILL be posted!
