Welcome!

Chicago Hash House Harriers

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!

Hash Smart! Hash Safely!

So, we reopened hashing at CH3 on June 7th with great fanfare (okay, medium fanfare!)

We’ve had some nice trails and have generally figured out how to hash safely during the pandemic. Your typical hash trail now starts and finishes at the hare’s patio, roof deck, alley or other outdoor area with space for social distancing. We have also successfully used city parks for the start/finish.

To avoid the pack being “a pack”, we stagger our start by 30 seconds or so in order to maintain proper distance from others.  We provide hand sanitizer during circle and require masks when near other people, or when entering the hare’s home to use the facilities (assuming the hare allows this — it’s up to the hare).

We want everyone to feel comfortable at our runs. If you have any suggestions for improving the experience, please get with mismanagement and let us know.

Welcome back and On-on,

Lifa
Your faithful webmaster
