Hash House Harriers in Canberra: up-coming runs

By Overheard 8 January 2009 22

I’ve posted a couple of previous items on the Hash House Harriers, a sociable mob (or mobs) of drinkers with a running problem. Lob the word ‘Hash’ into yon search field at the top of this page for more.

Some details of upcumming runs in the week commencing Monday 12 January appear below. The link at will reveal more about runs around Canberra, Australia and links to the world.

Monday: Capital Hash, 6pm. Black Mountain Reserve Car Park.
Monday: Belconnen Hash, 6pm. Zierholz Brewery, Fyshwick.
Monday: Canberra Hash, 6.27pm. Playground at corner of Helpmann Street and Lundie Place, Bonython.

Tuesday: Full Moon Hash, 8pm. Zierholz Brewery, Fyshwick.

Wednesday: WACT Hash, 6.10pm. Turkoz Restaurant, Woolley Street, Dickson.

The Harriettes run once a month; next run in Macquarie on 5 February (bring swimmers). They will also be hosting the ever-popular Scottish-Fijian Friendship champers and strawberry stall at the Multicultural Festival on 7 Feb.

Master Batemans Hash runs at the Bay on the first Saturday of the month.

New runners always welcome. The individual web-sites and contacts thereon will tell you more about whether it’s a BYO, pay for beers/other drinks from the ‘bucket’, etc.

If you’re really keen, Nash(ional) Hash is on the weekend of 1 May in Cairns, FNQ. Will be pointing the roo-battered, car-park-dinged, electronically-challenged VX in that direction in mid to late April. Links off the HHH site listed above.

I’ve been hashing for many a long year. The ‘No poofters’ thing comes up more in some hashes than others. However, Utah has it right. The terms does not refer to gays, it refers to party-poopers, whiners, whingers and their ilk.

We’re gay friendly. Hell, we’re friendly to everyone except those who are violent. Angry people are not welcome. Police forces across the world have been amazed that hash crowds from 500 to 5000 thousand get together for big hashes, drink copious amounts, and do so completely peacefully. We are proud of that aspect of hashing.

However, there is occasional coarse language and sexual references. Not for those of a nervous disposition, perhaps.
