Run Report for Run Number 75 -- July 13, 2014;
Hares: ANDY CAPP, NEXT WEEK
Theme: Down in the Boon Docks
Mid 50’s was the number – about 40% foreigners to local Vietnamese. The small bus was hiding behind some other buses and couldn’t be seen. Was the driver shy or sleeping? Another one of life's mysteries! The driver of the big bus let us all sneak on as long as we hid from sight.. oh well the floor was pretty comfortable and those with small a#ses could squeeze in and make threesomes out of seats built for 2.
Out we went to the boon docks. One of the most beautiful Bays and hinterland areas in the world and we (we didn’t see any of that ) … we got to see the way people live when they really don’t have the opportunity to do any better. The people who live by the river, near the docks, do it tough. They work hard to make ends meet and their life and living condition really do lack any frills at all. However the kids looked as happy as larks, and the local adults all had a smile for us, albeit many of them showing only gums.
We snaked our way through building sites, riverside villages, more of the same… and then eventually a refreshing drink stop near the main river. Then it was ON again through more buildings sites, river villages. The walkers and runners laid eyes on each other occasionally and nobody got lost.
DOWN DOWNS and ICINGS
- The usual suspects sculled beer
- The Hares
- Some local Vietnamese hashers for having a private party in the Circle – they also had to endure another chapter of the chequered past of one DICK FROMAGE.
- ANDY CAPP for continually FALSE CHARGING
- CUNSTABBLE for enlisting a SECRET COP to rat on Hashers in the Circle
- VD for spreading VIRUSES on-line.
Just Khanh is now CUM AGAIN due to her environmental efforts as she religiously collects all beer cans and bottles for re-cycling.

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!
