Bay Hash House Harriers
Here's how it works.
One or more 'hares' (really just people) set out
running, leaving behind a trail of flour.
Fifteen minutes later, the pack of 'hounds'
(more people) set out, tracking the marks in
hopes of catching up to, and snagging the hares.
The hares leave their marks clearly, but
cleverly, so as to try and outwit the pack. This
is done by leaving false trails and by arranging
for beer stops along the way.
Competitive running is strongly discouraged, as
this is not a race, but more of a game that we
play before we drink. Many of the hashers walk
the entire trek. The distance of the trail
varies depending on the hares personal
preference. The run can be anywhere from 3-6
miles. At the end of the trail, this group of
lunatics (and you can be one of us) will form a
fraternal circle (led by the Religious Advisor
or GM), sing vulgar songs and come up with
excuses for, and encouraging their comrades to
chug beer...... like we need a reason!
