How it works:

One or two members of the “kennel” (we call them the “Hares”) lays a trail with flour, chalk and/or toilet paper across every imaginable terrain in the area. The pack of runners & walkers or “harriers & harriettes” chase the hares by following the "trail marks" until they reach the end of trail or the “On In". Along the way, the “Hares” will make diversions and stops (checks) of various types (including beer checks) to slow the pack down and keep the runners & walkers together. Trails are generally 3 miles +/-

Hashing is about having fun REGARDLESS of your age (21 min), physical condition, race, beliefs, political affiliations etc. It is completely NON-COMPETITIVE. The hash is an escape from the mundane, we have crazy “hash names” sing crazy "hash songs", and have "hash lingo" all of which you pick up along the way. We are a very in-formal and diverse group.

All you need to do is click "I'm Coming" for a trail and show up at the time and place posted. You will be welcomed by friendly non -judgmental people and everything you need to know will be explained to you.

There are no rules in HASHING but we do have traditions. The HHH or H3 have been around since 1938 and kennels are found in every major city around the world and in many smaller ones too.

Birmingham is fortunate to have three kennels that offer a variety of trails on different days of the week:

Brimingham H3 - hashes MOST Saturday afternoons every month and the trails have little to no pavement. This can depend on the hare that day however. www.birminghamhash.com

Vulcan H3 - hashes every Tuesday evening at 6:15 and is more pavement oriented with some off-road. www.vulcanh3.com

Magic City H3 - is a special occasion hash. www.birminghamhash.com

You can read additional info for each hash under the pages heading or visit they're individual websites.

Other Alabama hashes include: Montgomery, Huntsville, Mobile, Tuscaloosa, Enterprise & Auburn.

If you have any question or need more info please call the Hash Hotline: 205-901-9367 or email bhamhasher@gmail.com

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
