History Magazine of The Hash House Harriers
Welcome to the Edinburgh Hash House Harriers Web Site.
We are a non-competitive fun running club of around 100 members. We run at a different location every Sunday at 11am within roughly a 40 mile radius in the countryside around Edinburgh. Runs are usually around 8km long and are followed by a pub lunch. Forthcoming runs are listed in the Hareline or by phoning the HOTLINE set up (usually by Tuesday) on 0131-557-2391.
New members or guests or visitors are always very welcome.
For those not familiar with hashing a good description can be found in "What's Hashing"
For newcomers and to give you an idea of what's involved, look at "New to the Hash"
Suffice to say it is a great way to get some exercise, see parts of the Scottish Countryside you might otherwise never see and have a great deal of fun at the same time.
You do not need to be a good runner to hash (or that fit for that matter).
We have members of all ages, shapes and sizes, some walk the trail using sticks and some compete as tri-athletes elsewhere. A good run sees everyone completing the trail in about the same length of time.
Fashioned after ‘Paper Chase’, it is a fun, fair but non competitive Cross Country running to promote the sport, exercise and offer a social outlet. It’s simple to organise and easy to participate, requiring little besides enthusiasm. Truly democratic, it transcends race, rank and religion. The benefits are fitness, fellowship and fun, and there lie the secrets to its popularity. Its fun, Enjoy.
Edinburgh H3 was founded in February 1981 by Willie Coupar (Surrey H3) and has successfully hosted The Commonwealth Hash in 1986 and UK Nash Hashes in 1989 and 2009.
