Potteries Hash House Harriers


So what is HASHING?

HASHING is a FUN, SOCIAL running activity for the fit and not so fit.  A trail of about 5 - 6 miles (with shortcuts often possible) is marked with blobs of flour by the “Hares”.  Trails normally follow a mixture of country footpaths, quiet roads and parklands.  There are “Checks” marked at roughly 1/4 mile intervals from which there are several possible ways for the trail to go. Front runners    explore the alternative ways until the real trail is identified; meanwhile the slower Hashers can catch-up and/or rest.  Fast & slower runners finish together.

Hashing is not a race, the aim being for everyone to take as much exercise as they wish and for the slow and fast participants to be in close proximity throughout. There is even an alternative option for walkers  who want to be involved but who don’t feel quite up to this running lark. Trails usually start and finish at a pub, where it is customary for Hashers to linger awhile on their return, quench their thirst and offer the Hare their opinion of his/her skill in setting the trail.
