Hashing "a drinking club with a running problem": 

The Hash House Harriers (HHH or H3) is an international group of non-competitive running, social, and drinking clubs. 

History:

Hashing originated in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 1938, when a group of British colonial officers and expatriates began meeting to run, in the tradition of the British Paper Chase or "Hare and Hounds". The original members included Cecil Lee, Frederick "Horse" Thomson, Ronald "Torch" Bennett, Albert Stephen (A.S.) Ignatius "G" Gispert and John Woodrow. Apart from the excitement of chasing the hare and finding the trail, harriers reaching the end of the trail would be rewarded with beer, ginger beer and cigarettes. 

The Constitution of the Hash House Harriers is recorded on a club registration card dated 1950: 

To promote physical fitness among our members 

To get rid of weekend hangovers

To acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it in beer

To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel. 

At a Hash: <br>One or more members (Hares) lay a trail, which is then followed by the remainder of the group (the Pack or Hounds). The trail often includes false trails/dead ends, intersections, various stops ("checks") including beer or songs, and splits (Turkey/Eagle). These features are designed to keep the pack together regardless of fitness level or running speed, as front-runners are forced to slow down to find the "true" trail, allowing stragglers to catch up. Beer remains an integral part of a Hash, though the balance between running and drinking differs between kennels, with some groups placing more focus on socializing and others on running. Generally, Hash events are open to the public and require no reservation or membership, but some may require a small fee, referred to as hashcash, to cover the costs incurred, such as food or drink. The end of a trail is an opportunity to socialize, have a drink and observe any traditions of the individual kennel. When the Hash officially ends, many members may continue socializing at an On-After or On-On-On, an event held at a nearby house, pub, or restaurant.

Shiggy Meter from PCH3.com

Shiggy is thick vegetation, wooded areas, canals or other water crossings, etc, usually muddy and dirty. Hares will generally advise what type of shiggy will be on trail. Other kennels may use different definitions and a scale of 1-10 but PCH3 uses the same Shiggy Meter as JaxH3 (Jacksonville Hash House Harriers).

1 Town trail, city streets, maybe some stairs and city squares.

2 Urban with some off road but you should not need a dry bag.

3 Some ready-made paths and some trail blazing; could get your feet wet.

4 Mostly wooded trail blazing; could be fences, walls, homeless camps, garbage dumps, mud, much, broken glass, snakes, spiders, little funny animals, swamp & water could be knee-high.

5 Anything goes; briars, stinky mud that could steal your shoes, water crossings over your head. Beware of animals, especially snakes & gators. Would be best to have a trail buddy with you at all times.
