Welcome to the Boston Hash!
If you have never been to a hash, then you are a virgin! Virgins have lots of questions… and we got tired of answering them. So, right here, before your very eyes, we posted everything that virgins always ask about…
What is a Hash?
A "hash" involves a trail that is set once a week in or near Boston by some unlucky group of hashers, typically a lead and some helpers. These poor sods are known as the "hares". This also leads to the use of the terms "harriers" (male) and "harriettes" (female) when referencing hashers in general. The trails themselves are anywhere between three and six miles long. Trail is typically marked in flour or chalk.
Who Are We?
Who are we, you ask? We are the Boston Hash House Harriers. In short, we are the Boston kennel of the Hash House Harriers, a “drinking club with a running problem” founded in 1938 in Kuala Lumpur. We are a group of 21-99 year olds who enjoy running and the occasional brew or, in some cases, brew and the occasional run. We were unofficially founded on June 9th, 1969 and have been setting trail ever since. We meet on Wednesday nights in the warmer months and Sunday afternoons in the colder months. It’s Boston, so the term “warm” is certainly relative. Use the links above to find out when we’re meeting next.
