What we're about

The Hash House Harriers are an International Group founded in 1938 with over 70,000 active worldwide members. We are a social running (we have a lot of walkers as well!) group that focuses on on the social element rather than just running. This is why we also welcome slow runners, power walkers and other walkers.

We meet regularly every Thursday and on the first Saturday and third Sunday of the month. Anybody can join by showing up at the designated meeting point of the day.

Our aim is to bring together local Swiss people and expats who want to socialise and have a bit of exercise at the same time. It's a great forum to meet new friends and potentially travel internationally as we have a large number of International Events.

Members come in all shapes & sizes, races, ages and fitness levels. We cater for young and old, fast or slow, fit or 'not-so-fit'! The main prerequisites are a sense of humour, willingness to meet new people,open-mindedness, tolerance and a general sense of fun. We are mainly English-speaking but most of us can speak (some) German..Most of our Swiss members are fluent in about 4 languages!

More information can be found on our main site http://www.zh3.ch and on the Meetup information page. (http://www.meetup.com/The-Zurich-Hash-House-Harriers/about/)

The planned future events are on Meetup and our main site. We also have organisers ('hares') lined up for some weeks ahead. If you would like to see who will organise in future, or would like to see free dates when you could set a trail, you can check the hareline (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Asc_Hy4F4qh3dEdkdHJfbF94bWlXY3lIeHZiNlk1NEE#gid=0). If you'd like more information on how to set trails see the hares guide (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1auDvX8leKaRioDsGWZda-VUGHj2eya2TpsUI_5UYIgY/edit#).

ZH3 Hash #1174: The first third sunday of the year hash

It's the first third sunday of the year! Lets polish this turd sunday up real nice and celebrate, guided by the able floured Slippery Digit. **** Update**** Bag drop will be a car, so be on time or be f***ed. The beer budget was blown out of the window, because the hare can't be trusted. There will be a buffet all you can eat at the on-in after circle. ****/Update**** As this is a Funday Sunday hash, expect trail to be a calm, relaxed and brief affair. Food will be served by the Thai Sun Garden, a buffet will be offered, so state your intentions about food below so the Restaurant can be informed about numbers. Meet at 1:45pm to start at 2.00pm. There will be a charge of CHF5.00 for beer/wine and snacks. If you have not hashed before, a Sunday true trail is typically 4-6 km, and there are all speeds in the group, including walkers who normally do a shorter route. If you are a slow runner, you will do something close to true trail distance, as there are places where the trail disappears, and the front runners have to find it - while they are looking, the rest of us have a chance to catch up. If you are a quick runner you will go further, probably around 10k.The hare (person who lays the trail) is really aiming for everyone to get to the end at about the same time in order to take part in the more social side of the run. There will be a charge of CHF5 to cover beer and snacks If you would like to know more about Zürich Hash House Harriers, check out also http://www.zh3.ch If you would like regular newsletter updates, please send a blank mail to [masked] with one of the following titles:- 'RUNS', for news of r*ns and social events 'NEWS', for news of everything else 'BOTH', if you want both

ZH3 Hash #1175: the Live Hare & Hot Chocolate (Schuss) Hash

Hares are Kiwiwiwi and JustDave Hot (Chocolate) Chick is Loves It Down Under Venue: Altstetten Bahnhof South Side We will use the lockers for bags. On-in will be the Burger place. This is going to be a live hare hash - Kiwiwiwi will be the running hare. Meet at 6.45pm to start at 7.00pm. There will be a charge of CHF5.00 for participating. First time? Here's what you need to know: • The aim of the hash is to find the beer stop at the end and have hit chocolate. • "True" trail is typically 6-7km. • The pace within the group varies from dead-slow movers (we call them DFLs) to over-achieving fast runners (we call them FRBs) • The "hare" cleverly lays the trail so that everyone reaches the end at the same time. • If you are a slow runner, you will clock around 7kms. • If you are a quick runner you will clock around 10kms. • If you are a walker you will be dedicated to the cause, ignore trail and take the shortest route possible to get to the beer. • There is always a place to deposit your bag and often a place to change. • There is a charge of CHF5 for participating (and includes beer and snacks). • If you like fun, drinking and doing something a bit different you will probably enjoy hashing. Humourless people need not apply.

ZH3 Hash #1179: Hooter x Langstrasse

Gemeinschaftsraum Wogeno

A to A trail around Langstrasse. Hare is D.E. Floured, venue is bag drop which is hare's hutch's basement which is adjacent to on-in which is Za'atar. Same procedure as last year? By popular demand, I'll leave a smidgeon of white power around the Langstrasse, allowing walkers to stroll to hooters for wings, and runners to run around until tired then head back to A for circle (indoors, in the dry and the warm?) with food either eaten at Za'atar or -- because only 14 seats -- taken back to hutch for consumption. Food: www.zaatar.ch/menu-2/ Meet at 6.45pm to start at 7.00pm. There will be a charge of CHF5.00 for participating. First time?
