RUTLAND HASH HOUSE HARRIERS

Click on an event in the Calendar for more details

Hashing is fun-running based on a "hare and hounds" trail which caters for all abilities. The hare sets a trail in chalk and flour, including false trails, loops and checkpoints, which help to slow the front runners down while they look for the next bit of trail, thus allowing the slower runners to catch up. The distance is usually about 4 to 5 miles, lasting an hour to 90 minutes. We run in woods, parks, towns, villages and around fields. We’ll typically meet in a car park or convenient layby, but occasionally in a nice warm pub. The run is always followed by beer drinking and bad singing. We will be easy to spot - a mixture of people of wildly varying fitness all dressed in running gear, addressing each other by odd nicknames. Just turn up and ask for one of the committee members, and we'll look after you.
