HASHING is a FUN, SOCIAL jogging activity for the fit and the not so fit. A trail of about four to five miles (with shortcuts always possible) is marked by blobs of flour by the "Hare". Trails normally follow a mixture of country footpaths, quiet roads and parklands. There are "Checks" marked at roughly 1/4 mile intervals from which there are several possible ways for the trail to go. Front runners explore the alternative ways until the real trail is identified, meanwhile the slower Hashers catch-up and/or rest. Hashing is not a race, the aim being for everyone to take as much exercise as they wish and for the slow and fast participants to be in close proximity throughout. Trails usually start and finish at a pub where it is customary for Hashers to linger awhile on their return, quench their thirst and offer the Hare their opinion of his/her skill in setting the trail. Non-serious running gear is normally worn, it may be muddy so it's best to bring a change of clothes. You are strongly advised to carry a robust torch on dark evenings.
