A Hash club is often referred to as 'A Drinking Club with a Running Problem'. We hash once a week, that is to say, we run or walk or crawl, a set course marked by a hare. As this is not a race, competitive running is frowned upon.
If you would like to try hashing in Bergen, please feel free to join us on a run or contact us for more information:
If the hare does not decide otherwise, the weekly runs start from the hare's abode at 7 p.m. every Wednesday. Check our Yahoo group or 'Join us' page for details.
A typical BH3 run can last up to 2 hours or longer if we have many drink-stops. We only lay one trail, which is usually cunningly laid to cater for both walkers and runners.
After the run, the Hare supplies condiments for the circle and provides a light supper for the pack. We no longer have a Beer Master, so on regular runs, Hashers bring their own beer for after-run drinking.
Hashers can choose to either pay the yearly membership fee of NOK 1300 by 28th February, or 'Pay As You Go Whenever You Show'. The first run is free, after that, the fee is NOK 40 on our regular Wednesday runs. All proceeds go to BH3 and are used to sponsor the Killer Hill weekend, the Christmas run and the A.G.M.
In addition, the Hare charges NOK 50 to cover the after-run nosh, beer for the circle and any mobile drink stop.
Hashers pay for their own beer at pub drink stops.
