Chicago Hash House Harriers

Info & Rego for Power of the Pussy XVIII

Welcome to ChicagoHash.com, home of the Chicago Hash House Harriers. Here you will find everything you need to take part in the Chicago chapter of the world’s largest “drinking club with a running problem.” We meet every week of the year to run a 3 to 5 mile trail through the great city of Chicago’s streets, alleys, parks, and forest preserves. Afterwards we conduct an entertaining ceremony known as “the circle” where we enjoy cold beer and some good laughs.

We’re a very social group. Our members come from all walks of life, all age groups (21+) and all abilities of running from slow to fast. Our one and only goal is to have fun!

Look below for details on our upcoming runs or click on the links to the left to discover all kinds of info — past, present and future — about the Chicago Hash.

Welcome and On-On!

Power of the Pussy XVIII

Friday, July 27 – Sunday, July 29

It’s time once again for our annual “Power of the Pussy” celebration as everyone’s favorite group of harriettes takes the reins and plan a truly memorable weekend for everyone.

The theme for this year’s Power of the Pussy will be “PoP Under the Sea” – join Chicago H3 as our lovely ladies dive deeeeeeep, and I mean DEEEP into the sea filled with trails, mermaids, booze, crabs, food, starfish and booze (and maybe even a Moby Dick or two). A trip under the sea wouldn’t be cumplete without flippers, sea shell bras, diving helmets and even a sponge that lives in a pineapple, so costumes, as always, are not only allowed but encouraged – hell, there will even be prizes for best dressed.

Your rego gets you plenty of cold beer {and wine} during and after trail, delicious food at the on-in, an exclusive giveaway (provided you rego early enough) and a spectacular shitty trail through the finest city in the world. If you rego for the entire weekend you’ll get access to Friday night’s “The Hash Aquatic Pre-Lube” as well as Sunday’s “Shipwrecked Hangover.” Not only that, but you’ll have a collection of the coolest harriettes you’ll ever meet showing you a good time.

Tank tops will be available {soon!} for an additional cost.

Rego is $69 Weekend/$55 Main Event Only. Waiting until America’s Birthday? It’ll cost you $80/$65. If you show up the day of and try to pay, it’ll cost you a whopping $90/$75. Power of the Pussy is worth it at any price, but don’t say the ladies didn’t warn you about the price increases. Be smart, rego early.

Friday July 27th 7:00 PM – The Hash Aquatic Carnival

Back by PoPular demand, PoP Under the Sea will kickoff with The Hash Aquatic Carnival! You will have the chance to visit the deepest, darkest depths of the sea to play {drinking} games for prizes! We’ll also have space inside the bar to mix & mingle {aka drink & ignore each other}. The carnival, as well as access to pitchers once back at the bar, is included in the Weekend Rego. Walk ups $5. {note: the bar also has a $20 AYCD deal you can purchase on your own if you’re lookin to get really lubed}

Venue: Redmond’s Ale House – 3358 N Sheffield Ave. & Nearby Park (Map)
Hash Cash: $5

Saturday, July 28th 2:00 PM – Power of the Pussy XVIII (Run #2173)

Dress up and dive in! It’s PoP Under the Sea! There will be long and short trails for your racist pleasures, and of course there will be some clever beverage stops along the way. Afterwards, prepare yourself for a circle like you’ve never experienced before. And food? Absolutely! You won’t go away hungry or sober.

Venue: The Atlantic Bar & Grill – 5062 N. Lincoln Ave. (Map)
Hares: The amazing ladies of CH3
Walk-Up Price: $75

Sunday, July 29th Noon – Shipwrecked Hangover

We’ll be starting at the totem pole (yes, an actual totem pole located along the lakefront bike path, just south of Addison) to visit each of the Seven Seas where you can try your hand at carnival-style drinking games and see what kind of booty you can score. This is not a trail. It’s drinking games. It’s fun. And boozy. After we’ve finished all the booze, we’ll head to Redmond’s for $5 pitchers (hash provided!) or $20 AYCD (on your own).

BRING YOUR OWN VESSEL. We will not have a vessel for you if you do not bring your own. We’re trying to save the earth and also don’t want to pick up after yo trashy ass that leaves four half empty solo cups around the house.

This is included in your Weekend Rego, walk ups are $10.

Location: The totem pole near 3510 N. Lake Shore Drive (along the lakefront bike path)

Walk-Up Price: $10
