Cheltenham and Cotswold Hash House Harriers - The Social Running Club
C2H3's First run was on 25/01/81
Founded by PMW & Basil
Hashing is a social running club.. Runs are typically between four and six miles, and are laid, in advance, by one or more HARES, usually following country footpaths or lanes or, if not, with the permission of local landowners. 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 the CHECKS and various FALSE TRAILS, all the runners, from the fit to not so fit, finish at about the same time. Runs usually start and end at a pub, and it is customary for HASHERS, after the run, to take full advantage of the facilities offered. Dress is usually scruffy running gear (trainers, shorts/tracksuit, T-shirt) - don't dress up, it can be muddy. Bring spare shoes, jeans, etc. for pub afterwards. If you’d like to try Hashing, just turn up at one of the forthcoming runs or, for confirmation of venue, to arrange a lift or for any other details, get in touch with one of the contacts contained in this site. We welcome women, men, children (with supervision), dogs, mums, dads, grand-parents. Of any sexual orientation. Or none. From any country, politics, religion, creed, etc. Basically, we’ll take anybody! Cheers. Come and enjoy.
