You probably have some friends who like it in the hash...

Come run with us! We meet every Monday, Wednesday, most Saturdays, Full Moons, and other special days. All levels of runners and walkers are encouraged. Get some exercise and have a great time doing it. Bring your dog (sometimes)! Or cat (never)! We run, (between bars mostly), drink and generally have a silly time.

Hashers are a loosely organized (disorganized) group of half-minds who get together to run, drink, enjoy irreverence and have a good time.

What does it take to be a hasher, you may be asking yourself? Not much. Showing up to a hash makes you a hasher. No membership fees, magazine subscriptions or special kool aid is necessary.

How does it work? Well, by the time you show up to a hash, the hares (the ones who make our trail) have already hidden extra beers at secret locations on the trail, and have returned to socialize and drink. Once all the hashers have arrived, (Hashing usually works on hash standard time. HST uses a completely variable and made up unit to measure time, so the start time could be much later than the time listed on the website) the hares explain the marks they will be putting on the ground to lead us toward the beer. The marks are generally made using flour or chalk. Then the hares get a 10 minute head(!) start, and during that time we finish our beverages and warm up a little.

The hash itself is a version of a kid’s game called hares and hounds. In the real game, the hares use flour or paper to lay a trail for the hounds to follow. Ours works the same way only with dead ends, wrong turns and beer. Now, if you are a slow runner or a walker, the fast bastards ahead of you have already solved all of the wrong turns and ideally, everyone gets to the beer stops at the same time. Additionally, being a front running bastard is generally discouraged. If you want to train for a ultra marathon, we may tease you a bit.

 

Often, the trail is a big loop, passing through bars, wilderness, streets, beer stops, apartment complexes and other places before somehow ending up back at the beginning. Once at the beginning, we participate in “circle” where we drink more and eat snacks and have a generally good time, before picking an “On-After” bar for an optional cool down beverage.

What to expect: As a hashing virgin (yes, you’re a virgin again… technically), we will pretty much just socialize with you and try to convince you that like yourself, we don’t really run all that well either. You probably won’t have to bring cash either, because in most of the kennels (hash groups) in the valley, your first hash is free (except the full moon hash, because we get the really good beer in bottles there). There will be water and beer provided for you, as well as some food at the end.


Still interested? Check the front page of this site for all of the upcoming hashes and just show up. (Look for 30 people standing around in a parking lot.) You can also read some more stuff from the About Hashing and About Us menus at the top of this page.
