What we're about
The Hash House Harriers (abbreviated HHH, H3, or referred to simply as Hashing) is an group of non-competitive running, social and drinking clubs worldwide. Hashing does NOT refer to any illegal substance. That might be your thing, but it's not ours, so if that's what you're looking for, move along. If, on the other hand, you enjoy drinking beer, running and/or walking with a group, and participating in fun and revelry, then you are in the right place! This would be a good point to mention that all Hashers must be 21 years of age or older to participate. The basics of hashing are fairly simple and fun: each trail or run begins with a "hare" who uses chalk, flour or toilet paper to lay a trail for the rest of the "pack" to follow. The marks the hare lays can be tricky and will lead the pack down and around all kinds of things in effort to challenge us Along the way, there is at least one beer stop, which is stocked with water and other non-alcoholic beverages as well. At the end of trail, we gather into a circle, sing some songs and drink the rest of the beer. The Upstate Hash House Harriers was founded in Greenville, SC in October, 1998. We run every weekend on alternating Saturday or Sunday afternoons. Our trails are usually 2-5 miles in length with 1-2 beer stops along the way. Trails are noncompetitive and the skill level among our members vary from marathon runners to walkers, to sometimes injured hashers with crazy leg braces - it's truly an all levels adventure. Trail may take us onto the streets and sidewalks, but we also cross streams and rivers, climb fences, crawl through storm drains, and scale whatever we can find. At the end of trail, we gather to celebrate a well laid trail, sing songs, and continue the socialization and revelry and eat food. Intrigued? Come out and give it a try!
