Run Report for Run Number 98 -- December 14, 2014;

Run 98

HARES: GOOD TO GO, ARSE DOCTOR, RENT BOY

A small Pack of 42 defied the forecast for heavy showers and headed north west to explore yet more NON VIRGIN ground in the Metro vicinity.

It was a short, well-set clever Hash in the first half, before the drink-stop, and the Walking pack constantly observed the Runners being bamboozled by checkbacks and false trails. Don’t you just love it!!!!

The Drinkstop was at a picturesque open-air drinker’s retreat seemingly in the middle of nowhere. We were promised a BIG surprise in the near future and imaginations were running wild as to the possibilities.

It was ON ON into rural and semi-rural areas, mainly on hard surfaces, no muddy feet up until this time. And then we saw it. The boat was so tiny, so flimsy, so close to the water…. and sooooo old!!! Two men were rowing it back and forth across the river which would have been about 80 metres wide. I like to think it was a shallow river because a lot of the Vietnamese cannot swim.

We piled into the boat in very small groups dependant on weight more than numbers. It’s the first time in my experience in Vietnam when Vietnamese people have not rushed and pushed their way onto public transport. They were atypically “shy” and preferred to stand back and watch for awhile!!!!!!! Many of the foreigners were afflicted with the same attack of “shyness” and some were seen scanning the area from the highest point…. Probably looking for a bridge…… Short Cutting Bastards didn’t find one so they did not have any other choices except to follow the trail backwards into the approaching darkness.

While all this anxiety and stress was happening, GOOD TO GO was screaming with delight and taking photos of terrified Hashers as they piled into boats and eventually made it to the other side.

Well….. eventually the river crossing was nothing more than an exciting memory especially because nobody fell in, dropped their smartphone or had any other mis-adventures on the river.

Then it was follow the trail home. Locals proved they had a good sense of humour by hijacking a lot of the trail markings. And then pointing us in the wrong direction!!! We are used to such hanky-panky and managed to find trail regardless of the obstacles.

Eventually the bus was in sight, complete with open eskies, Front Running Bastards (FRBs) and our ever-smiling bus-driver.

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!
