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. (https://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#).

If we do not accept your meetup request then it is probably because we have had a lot of spam accounts request membership recently, If this happens to you just come along anyway one evening. You will be more than welcome and we will sort out the meetup group membership later.

ZH3 Hash # 1389: The New Bond Girls

Lower Witikon (by Schulhaus Langmatt)

Hares are the Wannabe New Bond Girls - Climbidia and Slippery Digit.

In anticipation of the next Bond movie, we encourage everyone to begin practising to be the next Bond Girls. Whether you identify as a girl, a boy or something in-between, now is your chance to play your dream Bond girl. Dress-up, dress-down or don’t dress at all - it will be an equal opportunities hash.

Meet at 6.45pm to start at 7.00pm. There will be a charge of CHF5.00 for participating.

Here's what you need to know about the Hash:

• The aim of the hash is to find the beer stop at the end and have fun.
• "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.
