What are we (more info)
The Hash House Harriers (HHH or H3) is a fairly informal international
group of non-competitive social running clubs. An event organized by a
club is known as a hash, hash run or simply hashing, with participants
calling themselves hashers. Berkshire Hash House Harriers (BH3) run
from a different Berkshire pub each week. BH3 has been hashing for
more than forty years and have laid and run more than 2100 trails.
During the winter we start on Sunday mornings at
11am. In the summer months (from April to August) we start at 7:30 pm
on Monday evenings. The length of the hash trails can vary, but
generally there are several options with each trail - a short
running trail of around 4 or 5 miles for runners - a longer running
trail of 5 to 6 miles (or more) for more enthusiastic runners. There
is also a walkers trail of around 3 or 4 miles.
Hash trails are laid in blobs of flour and end up
back at the pub they started from. There will be "checks" where the
trail can go in any direction and the "pack" have to find the
way. This means that the faster runners have to look for the
correct trail giving those behind a chance to catch up. All our trails
are multi-terrain through the beautiful countryside in and around
Dogs and children are very welcome. A listing of
our next few runs is available.
