“A Drinking Club with a Running Problem”
R*ns every Thursday at 6:30pm Visitors are most welcome
We are the Sydney Thirsty Hash House Harriers - the world (in)famous "Drinking Club with a Running Problem".
We are a social bunch of folk who have fun and welcome anyone else who would like to join us, be it on a regular basis or just visiting.
What do we do?
Run, Jog, Walk or Dawdle - anyone that likes to mix their socializing and drinking with a bit of exercise would enjoy the Hash.
There is no competition, everybody's a
hero, there are no winners or losers!
The idea of hashing is similar to the old English public school game of Hare & Hounds, where the "Hare" sets a trail using cut paper
(or these days, more so flour or chalk). The pack (that's us) try to follow the trail and, just like hare & hounds, the trail can go
dead and pick up elsewhere - it keeps the fast runners from finishing too soon.
When do we do it?
evening at 6:30pm in or around the city. Runs last for about an hour
or so, and after the run we have a
"Circle" where charges are made,
"Down Downs" are drunk, stories are told and many beers are drunk.
We usually manage to sing a good selection of songs. From there we go to the "On On" - a local restaurant or
pub where we eat (& drink). We frequently have a monthly run on the first Saturday of each month -
sometimes this is held on a "weekend away" where we can get plenty of bush (running of course).
How much do we pay?
Just $7 (AUD) for all the beer and fun you can handle!
