Run Report for Run Number 76 -- July 20, 2014;
Hares: CUNSTUBBLE PANTLESS AND JUST B
They came out of nowhere – 75 Hashers turned up at Patrick’s and somehow squeezed themselves onto our buses.
Our destination was south-westerly, in behind the main road, a green oasis hidden on the edge of suburbia.
The Run/Walks were separate and both unbelievably scenic. Check out the photos on our website www.nhatranghash.com and FB Community Page Nha Trang Hash House Harriers.
We meandered around country lanes, through rice paddies, across train tracks – all the while being almost blinded by the unbelievably bright shades of green from the fields around us.
The drinkstop was in the midst of this kaleidoscope of colour and it too was the stuff of fairytales. It was complete with fun things on which grown up children could amuse themselves.. For example the bridge that finished halfway across the stream … It was 6” wide with one hand-rail and the whole time we were there, it was full of hashers squeezing past each other. Whilst this was happening RENT BOY stood on the side of the stream throwing large rocks into the water to cause disarray and a shower of water to those venturing across the brdge
And then came the ball-buster…… a MOTHER of a hill that was impossible to run up and walk down unless you were a mountain goat. So Hashers performed amazing slides down…. whilst receiving out- of- this world views of the ocean and coastal hinterlands. CHEAP DATE is terrified of heights but braved the MOTHER with the help of INFECTIOUS PRICK. Her screams could be heard for miles. JUST ALAN was sliding down and gained so much momentum that he had to hug a tree to stop his descent.
Many hashers avoided the above “Hill” and opted to negotiate more rice-paddies. Those of the shorter -leg variety found jumping from one rice-paddy levee-bank to another…. an impossible task. Harriers of the longer- leg variety led by SANDY CRACK were always there to help and happy to endure an icing later for their chivalry.
DOWN DOWNS and ICINGS and NAMINGS
- The usual suspects sculled beer
- The Hares
- JUST CT and NO INTEREST for opening up a restaurant called TOMKIN just south of Patrick’s Wine Bar.
- JUST HUONG is now WELL HUONG … a clever play-on-words on her name… Really?????
- JUST SKIN DOCTOR is now INCONTINENCE… because given the amount of ice and water he throws at everyone, he clearly cannot hold his water.
Vy’s Vietnamese Pumpkin soup - delicious
The ON ON after the ON ON was at The Watering Hole.

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!
