The Hash House Harriers (abbreviated to HHH, H3, or referred to simply as Hashing) is an international group of non-competitive running, social, and drinking clubs, and commonly referred to as “drinkers with a r*nning problem.” An event organized by a club is known as a hash, with participants calling themselves Hashers.
One harrier – referred to as the hare – lays a trail of flour over a course (s)he chooses. The other harriers (the hounds) try to follow that trail to the end where they enjoy munchies and a beverage. The typical hash is 3-5 miles through the city. Anyone over 21 is welcome to join. The run or walk easily accommodates all abilities. The hash isn’t a race – there are no prizes. The challenge is following the trail and camaraderie and beverages are the rewards.
Charm City Hashes are generally held in Baltimore city on Friday nights at 7 PM. Upcoming hash details are available in the calendar!
