What we're about

We have resumed CH3 runs. On On!

***********

"A drinking club with a running problem"

We are an international, non-competitive running club. We run every week of the year, on Saturday afternoons in the winter (October to March) and Monday evenings in the summer (April to September). The attendance is usually 25-45 people.

The start is usually from a parking lot next to a train station or bus stop in the Greater Copenhagen area. Look for a group of people in colourful clothes. Sometimes the way from the station to the meeting point is marked with chalk or flour blobs, especially if there is a parking lot on either way of the rails. When it's cold, bring some warm clothes to put on after the run. There is always at least one car available where you can store your bag during the run.

Every week we run in a different area, and we don't know the route beforehand - only the so-called hare, i.e. person that marked the trail, knows it, and the rest of us needs to find it by following marks made with flour. Once in a while the trail will stop (it's a so-called "check") and from that point you need to find out where it continues - the marks will continue after 100-200 meters. This way if you're a fast runner, you have a chance to run more by checking out possible trails. If you're a slow runner, there is a chance that the right trail will be found by the time you get to the "check". This way the fastest runner and the slowest walker will most likely finish the run within a few minutes from each other.

We most often run in the forest. If you're a recovering runner or a beginner, you can choose to walk part or all of the trail. The trail is usually roughly 7-10 km, but shortcuts are marked so that walkers and slow runners can end up doing only a 4-6 km trail. Sometimes people ask us what pace we run at. There is no answer to that - everybody runs at the pace that suits them.

After the run we drink beer and sing frivolous songs while praising or punishing fellow members for good or stupid things they did during the run by giving them some more beer to drink.

WE NEVER CANCEL A RUN. We are not scared away by few participants or bad weather. Also, do not get discouraged by few registrations on Meetup. Our club has existed since 1980, and a vast majority of our members check the start location on run list (https://ch3.dk/?Runlist) and just show up. So there is no risk that you will come in vain.

The first run is free. After that the fee is 50 DKK per run, or a subscription of 222 DKK per quarter. The price includes all beverages during and after the run as well as some snacks (crisps) after the run. This does not apply for the 15+ km runs that usually find place on the second Sunday of each month - these are followed by hot food, and the price is 75 DKK per run (no option for quarterly payment). If a run requires the 75 DKK fee, it is specified in the run description.

The official language of the Copenhagen Hash House Harriers is English. A lot of us speak Danish though, so if you'd like to practise Danish, there will be plenty of opportunity for that as well.

Please be aware that photos may be taken during events and posted on this site. If you want a photo of yourself removed, please contact one of the organisers. Please do not post photos of others engaging in other activities than running.

In compliance with EU regulations please do not use personally identifiable information (e.g. e-mail address, real names if not included in people's Meetup profile, etc.).

15+km run/jog/walk + lunch in Rusland

Kildekrog St.

See a protected area that feels so remote that to some it resembles the steppes of Russia (hence the name). The trail will be approx. 15 km long. It will lead you through paths and bushes, forests and meadows, and perhaps a stream or two.

There are two start times: 10.00 for walkers and joggers, and 11.00 for runners. Come a few minutes early to drop off your bag in a car and get an explanation of how the marks work. We never cancel and will run in any weather.

With the different start times we'll all end up at the end around the same time, and all will be rewarded with a hot meal, hot chocolate, and cold drinks from Ching's food truck. A fee of DKK 75 each, in cash or Mobile Pay, will cover all of the food and drink.

Enjoy the lovely nature and a bit of a challenge while making new friends.

On on!
