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 trail through the great city of Chicago’s streets, alleys, parks, and forest preserves to find where the beer is stashed.

No, we’re not talking about Hashing Tools as in all the dude-bros that hang around the hash attempting to get on all of our inebriated members, we’re talking about Hashing Tools as in the tips, tricks, and other shit that can make you an even better hasher (you’re already great, just the way you are). Want a tip about laying trail? We’ve got you covered. A rarely-sung song to make yourself look all the more impressive when visiting another hash? Natch. A bar that nobody has ever bothered to hash out of that’s also impossible to get to via public transportation? You’re speaking my language! Sit back, relax, and get ready to become the best hasher that you can be!

Haring Guide
Hashing is easy – haring less so. There’s a million things that can go wrong out there, and they usually will. Prepare yourself and read the Haring Guide – this will help ensure that the down-downs you earn in circle are because your trail was actually tolerable and not a sloppy mess.

Hash Bar Map
Struggling to think of a place to have your next Hash Run out of? We’ve got you covered. The Hash Bar Map includes on 800 points of interest (and almost 500 bars) that have either hosted a hash in the past or are primed to host a hash in the future. The Hash Bar Map is by no means an exhaustive listing of the bars in Chicago, but it is a great place to start.

Hash Song Book
Running and drinking aren’t the only thing that the Hash House Harriers are known for – there’s also circle and the all of our wonderful songs! The Hash Song Book includes lyrics to almost 100 of the most popular songs sung by the Chicago Hash House Harriers. Impress everyone with your inability to carry a tune by memorizing everything inside of the Hash Song Book and you could even be the next Chicago Hash House Harriers RA.

Kick off the Chicago summer in style with our annual Memorial Day Hash celebration. This year the calendars synced up perfectly, and this weekend will also include our 2100th trail. Not too shabby. If you join us for the whole weekend you’ll get access to three trails over the course of the long weekend Or you can rego for just the main even on Sunday. No matter which option you choose, you’ll get trails and circles complete with food and beverages, as well as a giveaway, and all the awesome extra shenanigans that go along with hashing in Chicago. We’ll also have the options of purchasing an extra commemorative shirt from the event for the low-low price of just $15.

If you’re attending the Main Event on Sunday, please consider taking part in our annual pot luck – bring any side dish to share with your fellow hashers and we’ll give you $5 in cold cash money back the day of the event. This helps us keep the price of the hash down, lets you show off your cooking skills, and makes sure that everyone has something to eat that they’re actually excited about. What a steal!
