What Is Hashing?
Hashing consists of following a trail from a pub laid in eco-friendly flour or sawdust. It is non-competitive and caters for all levels of fitness. ‘Regroups’ are set to allow slower hashers to catch up before we all set off again.
We are a family - and dog - friendly Hash and have members ranging in age over a span of seventy years.
We meet at a different pub at 11 a.m. every Sunday (occasionally on a Saturday so do check the ‘Diary’ page) and set off to run, jog or walk around the wonderful Dorset countryside. The ‘Hash Diary’ page here gives details of upcoming venues and social events.
What Else Do Hashers Do?
We have many local social events such as cycle treasure hunts, parties and B-B-Qs.
We also organise social and Hashing trips in the UK and abroad. For example, click here to see Hardy’s Hashers in Krakow, Poland.
Can I Try It?
Your first Hash is free so there is no reason not give it a try!
Thereafter it is £2 per hash or £20 per half-year. All surpluses are ploughed back for members’ benefits.
You should bring a change of clothes and shoes in case it is muddy underfoot.
The ‘Diary’ page here shows future venues for Hardy’s Hashes and has links to other local, national and international Hashes.
If you cannot make Sundays there is another Hash - called the Sub60 - which runs in the same South Dorset area but meets every other Thursday evening. See the website here.
What’s The History Behind It?
Hardy's Hash House Harriers are a part of a long, proud and worldwide Hashing tradition. There are over 1,700 Hash clubs spread over every country in the world. Wikipedia has an excellent article on hashing and its origins in the 1930s, please click here
