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
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.
