San Diego Area Hash House Harriers; A Drinking Club with a Running Problem.

    Some joggers love a running high. Others just love a good buzz! The Hash House Harriers are among the latter, a worldwide running and drinking group with clubs in virtually every city and several in the San Diego Area. You can often spot the “hare-raisers” – or leaders- and the runners in the midst of their 4 or 5 mile run on canyon trails and streets around San Diego breweries. About 60-80 people meet regularly, and only about half actually run. It’s the perfect antidote to the beer belly!

    The Hash House Harriers (abbreviated to HHH or H3, or referred to simply as hashing) is an international group of non-competitive running social clubs. An event organized by a club is known as a hash or hash run, with participants calling themselves hashers or hares and hounds.

    The San Diego Area Chapter has posted on their website: “The first rule of Hashing is THERE ARE NO RULES! This rule also applies to anyone who wants to start Hashing. There are no dues and no “joining.” Nobody cares how fast or slow you run, what you wear, or what you do for a living. Just find a run and come on out! Try to get to the start about 10 minutes early. Find the “Hash Cash” who will take down your name (to identify the body later on) and collect your run fee. Let the Hash Cash know that this is your first run, and they will make sure that you get a “first timer” briefing before the run.”

    The run fee is usually between $2 – $7. Who would avoid their morning run if it includes fun times with good friends and beer? If you are interested in joining a run or for more information on the group check out their website.
