Hashing

 

 

What is hashing?

Hash runs are non-competitive 'hare and hounds' outings of about four miles, including loops, false trails and short cuts to ensure that runners of all standards get involved.   Each weekend a mixed group of all ages will assemble at a previously designated location.  After an initial briefing by their leader (known as The Hash Master) they set off in the bush, shouting ON ON. They follow a trail of flour or shredded paper which takes the “pack” through some of the most attractive parts of the island.

In a hash, the participants run or walk at their own pace, at their own risk, and with the knowledge of their own limitations. If you are unhappy about the trail ahead of you, you turn back and follow the trail back to the starting point. No embarrassment is caused by cutting short your hash for any reason.

At the conclusion of the hash the participants undergo an intensive 'recovery' session where they consume large quantities of beer & rum and undo all the good that this running and walking has done to them.
