Run Report for Run Number 79 -- August 10, 2014;
RUN REPORT NO. 79 on 10 August, 2014
HARES: DINGO, BOOTY CALL, THE RABBIT
It was billed as the run of the year. Over 60 hashers turned up to experience it. The scene was set early. The bus driver was so precious he may as well have been wearing a tiara. Away we went in a south, south, westerly direction.
It was new Hash country and looked interesting from the bus until we came to an abrupt stop in front of a 6” puddle. Many trucks were traversing this extended puddle so it held no mysteries regarding its depth. By this time the bus driver’s tiara was firmly in place and he regally announced that he would not take the bus over the puddle for fear of damaging it. Some of us thought he was concerned about damaging the puddle, because there was no way the bus was going to sustain damage.
CHEAP DATE was so sweet and negotiated very well however the most the bus driver was prepared to do was turn the bus around to face home.
By this time the HARES were in a dreadful flap. The rest of us pretended it wasn’t happening and did polite things like focus on a distant object and pretend we were somewhere else.
Eventually we were given the ON ON and asked to head “that way” for 30 minutes and then turn around. It all worked out well though because the runners found the Hash trail and had a (in)decent, challenging gallop, the walkers found interesting countryside and some hashers even ended up at the designated midway drinkstop.
DURACEL BUNNY made a return and met a newbie called JUST ROSIE who is an emerging BUNNY with endless energy. Both of them were running up and down hills for fun after the run was finished and the rest of us were enjoying a drink before the CIRCLE.
CUNSTABLE PANTLESS ran the circle in the absence of the GM as he was on the ice for almost the duration.
DOWN DOWNS and ICINGS

For those inclined toward armchair hashing, you may follow our exploits by reading the high literature called run reports. Read from our extensive collection dating all the way back to 24 February 2013.
For those who cannot read, but like to look at pictures, we offer you a wide selection of run pictures (including after effects)
Why do we Ice?
Because icing can be good for you. Just compare the evidence from our recent run:
Hashing: What’s it all about?
(Borrowed shamelessly from the wankers up in Ha Noi)
If you like a regular social (or anti-social) gathering with a couple of drinks (or more) and a bit of sweat, the Hash might be something for you. The Hash is a very social and international, recreational cross-country running for fun activity. Put simply: we run, socialize and drink a little beer.
The idea of hashing was born around 1938 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaya, as a club for drinkers with a running problem. They called themselves the Hash House Harriers (HHH), named after the building were they started from. You can find more details about the origins in our (currently non-existent) History section.
Nowadays an estimated 2000 chapters, spanning all 7 continents uphold this tradition on a regular base.
Every Hash chapter has its own interpretation of this idea, but generally, the pack (the runners) try to follow a trail, laid by one or two club members (the Hares or Does). By putting false trails, the Hares make sure that quick runners arrive more or less at the same time at the finish as the crawlers/walkers/joggers. There are no winners and upon completion, everybody is rewarded with a couple of drinks in the 'circle' where the emphasis is on fun and spontaneity.
Why we are so famous!
Before the Nha Trang Hash had even held its first event it was already featured in Harrier magazine!
