What we're about

We are the local Chapter of an international non-competitive social "running club with a drinking problem" with "kennels" all over the globe. Visit any major city and you can join the Hash House Harriers and Harriettes for some fun and exercise. Both runners and walkers join us on our "Hashes", a scavenger hunt for beer.

A hash trail blends running/walking with orienteering as the group (hounds) follow chalk/flour marks. These are either preset or marked on the fly by the lead runners (hares), while the rest of the group (hounds/the pack) follow. The pack's reward is finding beer on trail and at the end. Each trail is different. They start and end at various locations in and around Akron and last two to four hours with many members socializing after the end at a local restaurant or bar.

We meet year round on the 2nd and 4th Saturday and the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month. We also meet every Thursday in October and occasionally have impromptu trails when visiting Hashers are in town. Visit our website for additional information ( www.AkronHash.com (http://www.akronhash.com/) ) and Meetup for upcoming Hashes,

Upcoming events (4+)

Trail# 558 Fall Thursdays (Hashtobeer)

The Getaway Pub

HARE: Little Enchilada
6:00 PM Prelube 6:30 PM Trail
Location: Getaway Pub

What to expect:

We meet and prelube for a half hour before sending the hare off to lay trail using unique "hashing" marks that the pack must follow. Trail can go in any direction and anywhere.

This is not your usual running/walking club. We guarantee you will see parts of Akron never before seen! It is a hare / hound trail where the pack (hounds) tries to catch the hare, with the ultimate goal of finding beer.

What to bring besides a sense of humor and adventure:

• $5 bill will get you beer / water on trail

• A dry bag (change of clothes, especially shoes/socks) as you never know where trail will take you

• A headlamp or flashlight, it gets dark quickly this time of year

• A friend or two for some extra companionship

• Extra money if you want to grab a bite to eat afterwards
