When

When do we meet?

The Warwick Hash House Harriers meet every Monday evening, at 7:00pm, come rain or shine (or very occasionally on Tuesday, when Monday is a public holiday).

If you can't wait until then, or you have other commitments on Mondays, then consider joining one of the other local chapters:

During winter, you might consider bringing along a portable torch but this is not a requirement.

Where

Where do we meet?

Unless the organizer for the run each week states otherwise, we rotate between the following venues:

We may change this list over time, but we'll update these details if/when we do!

Who

Who are we?

Hashing has been described as a “drinking club with a running problem”.

More specifically, it is social jogging for the unfit, slightly fit and nearly fit. Runs are typically three to four miles and are laid using plain flour, in advance, by one or more “hares”, usually following roads, lanes or footpaths. There are “checks” every half mile, or less, where better runners can run further in endeavouring to find the correct path, and lesser runners can have a rest. Hashing is not a race, the aim is that because of “checks” and “false trails”, all the runners finish at about the same time.

Runs usually start and end at a pub, and it is customary for “hashers” to take advantage of the facilities offered after the run. Dress is usually scruffy running gear (trainers, shorts/tracksuit, T-shirt) as it can be muddy.

If you'd like to try hashing, just turn up at one of the forthcoming runs or, for confirmation of venue/other details, see the Contact section below.

Stats

Stats

A few people have asked if we are keeping any record of how many runs people have attended etc. The short answer is yes, we do maintain a table of how many runs you have attended/hared - if anyone would prefer not to be included in this list, just let us know via the Contact details above.

Strava

Some of our hashers insist on logging their runs on Strava - it's not all FRBs either!

There's no “winning” a hash, but it can be amusing to see who got lost where so, if you are on Strava, why not join our Warwick H3 Strava Club?
