Run Report for Run Number 89 -- October 19, 2014;
This Sunday, October 26.
There is no regular (3 pm) run.
Instead there is the survivors run for the Nash Hash at 10:00 am (now closed; advance payment required)
HARES: SANDY CRACK, NO F#CKING WAY
The rain pelted down the previous evening and then early in the day. It didn’t deter 53 Hashers as we headed north west with Metro in sight… and more Virgin ground discovered, or was it the 6 months no-go rule wherein the Hash is miraculously a VIRGIN again because we cannot remember it!
It was a well marked, scenic run/walk through rural and semi-rural landscape. There was lots of balancing required as we maneuvered for a very long while along 4 inch wide concrete blocks which abutted vegetable and rice fields.
Locals came out in force to check us out and the neighborhood children were as friendly as ever.
We approached the sign to the drinkstop and the quaint bridge that led to it. Bonus points because the bridge was above a sea of water lilies, it was a swinger and a photographers dream.
The runners were rarely seen except for PRICKLY BUSH who kept missing signs and re-doing the same loops……Have we named her correctly?
.The Hash ended at the bus if you managed to find the cunningly hidden hole in the fence which led to a large paddock behind which the bus was hiding.
The ON ON
Dark descended quickly so there was a rush to eat Vy’s absolutely delicious Chicken Casserole with baguettes…… and then to wash it down with some San Mig.
Usual suspects were charged and iced …. Hares and Visitors, Dosage and others
CUNSTABLE PANTLESS’ visiting son did not fancy drinking out of his new shoes…. So dad had to take one for the team… and drink out of his son’s sweaty, muddy, oozing new shoes!!!
The GM was charged by PRICKLY BUSH and iced for some inconspicuous crime. He had pulled a butt muscle so welcomed the charge and was reluctant to leave the ice.
DELTA HORNY was called upon to model the NASH HASH TSHIRT and matching cap which had been designed and made by JUST VY VY.
DELTA made a very attractive and composed model until she realized that her own name featured on the TShirts and Hash Bags. Yes…. BONDAGE (DELTA’s husband), wanted to contribute to HASH in a meaningful way so he paid full sponsorship fees to have the following wording “Thoa McColl Orphanage” on every Nash Hash TShirt and bag.
Nash Hash is this weekend. There will be a bucket-load of pics for you to check out, both on the website www.nhatranghash.com and Community FB page Nha Trang Hash House Harriers.

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!
