Saturday, August 27, 2011 - 10:00


Event Type: 

Korea HHH 

Yongsan Kimchi H3 @ 10am


That’s ONE HUNDRED TRAILS: through snow and ice, through rivers and swamps, under bridges, up broken ladders, over roofs and fences, through private and public property alike, for over three hundred miles, and spent $500 in hash-cash… ALL FOR THE PROMISE OF BEER AT THE END!

It’s time for us to celebrate this craziness and I would LOVE IT if you could help me.

For those of you that don’t know, an Emeritus Master is a hasher that is free to hash whenever they want but can no longer be given down-downs, or made to carry stuff on trail, or given hash-shit … SO THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE!


On Saturday 27th August at 10.00 am. DON’T BE LATE (or Shitonya will show you how much she loves you!)

Go to NOKSAPYEONG STATION, Line 6, Exit 2 and follow chalk to start point. It is about a 10 minute walk.


Trail Info: This is an A TO B trail. So DON’T BE LATE. There’s a bag car.

There will be a WALKING TRAIL and a R*NNING TRAIL, and it will be dog friendly! Virgins of all ages and abilities welcome!

5,000 won! FREE SHIT! Bring your liver.

So, come out and enjoy the glorious wonder that is Korea and get drunk.

The original idea was to mimic the Hare and Hounds or Fox and Hounds style chases that have been around for centuries in one form or another. Some "gentle-men" substituted men for the game in an effort to add something different to the sport. These sportsmen became known as "hashers" and the sport was referred to as Hounds and Hares or the Paper Chase.

The Hash House Harriers had its humble beginnings in 1938 with an Englishman named Albert Stephen Ignatius Gispert, in what is now Malaysia. Having a fondness for the "paper chase," he gathered together a group of expatriates to form a group in Kuala Lumpur that would later become a worldwide legacy. The fraternity received its name from the Selangor Club Chambers, which due to its lacklustre food was commonly referred to as the "Hash House."

The Objectives of Hashing:
(from a 1950 Kuala Lumpur club registration card)

* To encourage physical fitness amongst our members
* To get rid of weekend hangovers
* To acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it with beer
* To persuade the older members that they are not as
old as they feel

The above info. was posted on GoToTheHash.net from an old article in a Malaysian Airline Magazine

Today we are known as " A Drinking Club with a Running Problem." You don't have to be a drinker or runner, BUT you MUST have a good sense of humor and a pair of running/walking shoes. All of the groups in Korean are different. There is a Men ONLY hash, Women ONLY hash and lots of Mixed hashes.
