Run Report for Run Number 119 -- May 10, 2015;
Run report 119, May 10, 2015
Because Hash is what it is and lies are given a level of respect unequalled in any other institution you should give no credence to anything written in this report.
Hares: E-Cup & Andy Capp. (Run Evaluation - %)
Sunday was another glorious Nha Trang day. A little on the warm side perhaps but they (whoever in hell ‘they’ are) do call our fine city the Noosa Heads of Vietnam.
44 rabble-rousing Harriers/Harriett’s climbed aboard the bus at Patrick Wine Bar and headed out in a flurry of ever increasing excitement (a touch of literary licence, more like comfortable curiosity).
As we drove down Tran Phu, on the right, hundreds of Nha Trangians and tourists enjoyed the perfect swimming conditions including a sizable number of Russian visitors concentrating on cooking themselves to a frazzle.
Soon after crossing the Tran Phu Bridge onto Pham Van Dong we turned left in foothills of Hon San Mountain and stopped to unload on an unmade road. Andy Capp set about enlightening NTHHH virgins about the finer points of navigating a hash run over the din of noisy hashers. These gentle-folk will be iced on the day and named in future reports.
Messer’s Cup & Capp set a fairly raggedy run and were iced accordingly later on. The lead walkers had to assist Andy himself to ponder the direction of the run with a number of us having to return to an unmarked drink stop. However he redeemed himself with esky full of refreshments arriving in a timely fashion on the back of a bike.
E-Cup arrived at half-way drinks seemingly from nowhere associated with the set run.
The run led us on a 2 mtr wide concrete footpath (obviously hand-mixed) leading to nothing but a few isolated houses. These houses are set on the edges of a 25mtr wide, brick-walled, water course which water wouldn’t have flowed down it since the last 3 day torrential downpour (almost unheard of in Nha Trang.)
Booty Call as usual led the very the few runners and increased the length of his own run in his masochistic fashion. Oxymoron in hot pursuit maintained Nha Trang Harriett’s reputation.
However due to the heat of the day nobody was disappointed with the shortness of the run.
The circle was held on the concrete shores of Nha Trang Bay. Fine food was again prepared by Mirror and Pickle Dick. In true Canadian fashion Sandy Crack avoided paying registration fees but turned up for the free grog.
- The Hares
- E CUP for being jealous of ANDY CAPP receiving all the attention as HARE and diverting attention to himself by stampeding a herd of cattle and then pretending to try and save us from them.
- OXY MORON for not wearing her Hash TShirt
- A Vn Harrier for crimes to do with whinging, moaning, complaining
- A VN Harriette for not wearing the TSHirt that INDECENT EXPOSURE had so gallantly purchased for her earlier in the day.
-FANNY WAXER for new shoes
Next Week was charged by Pickle Dick for new socks, which as you would all agree was a frivolous charge.
As the sun set over Nha Trang Bay and night came in, NTHHH to a man and woman reflected on the delight of living in this delightful spot of the world.
PS. Next Week (me) will be in Cambodia next week so if you feel motivated please write the report and send it to Dosage
Next run: Run # 122:
May 31, 2015
(at some location to be selected by the hares when they get around to it)
Led by the illustrius MISS MARY POPPINS and SON
Time: The Pack will take off at 3:00...ish.
(you are urged to be there at 2:30 PM to get your act (and ours) together)
The bus will leave from Patrick Wine Bar: 3/3 Tran Quang Khai
Cost: 120,000 VND (60,000 VND for Vietnamese) (includes bus and water and sometimes even booze and snacks)
Generic run information:
Ex-pats: 120,000VND (20,000VND less when there is no bus needed)
Vietnamese: 60,000VND (Why do we have a reduced price?)
The price of the hash was established to cover our actual of our primary activities.
The members of the committee feel the Hash is enhansed by the presence of local citizens. At teh same time, we recognize that few Vietnamese have the same level of income as the expats living here. An "across the board" alternate price was set for our Vietnamese participants. Roughly this means that we allow the Vietnamese to come "at cost". Note that we do not "means test" the individuals: all Vietnamese are welcome at this price (any who wish to pay the full cost paid by foreigners are welcome to do so; but no one is expected or required to do that)
The price includes: the run, bus, drinks during the run, drinks and snacks at the circle after the run.
Date and Time:
We will run every Sunday at 3:00 PM
All runs start at Patrick Wine Bar: 3/3 Tran Quang Khai

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!
